Whisk eggs and add milk. Add vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Whisk until combined.
Add your sliced bread into the eg custard mixture. Let it soak for 30-45 seconds on each side depending on how stale and thick the bread is.
In a frying pan on medium heat add a tablespoon of butter and a little oil. Heat until sizzling.
Add the soaked read into the pan. Cover with a lid and cook for a minute. Sprinkle the top with sugar and flip the bread over.
Cook without the lid for 1-2 minutes until the sugar has caramelized. Sprinkle sugar on the other side and repeat.
Once cooked through remove from the heat and let the sugar set on the French toast before serving.
Serve with honey, whipped cream and fresh fruit.
