Salt of the Earth

WW Cinnamon Raisin bread from Salt of the Earth Bakery and Restaurant is a most delicious treat.I had grand plans for it, luscious overnight custardy French Toast in thick slices. The loaf was so good that we just ate it toasted with fresh butter. We had it for breakfast and desert for lunch and desert for dinner. You get the idea, it was just irresistible. Overnight FrenchToast  or Custard French Toast come closest to how my mom made french toast.

Josephine's recipe 

3 eggs, beaten yellow and frothy
1 tsp. sugar for each egg used
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. milk 
4 slices sweet or sour dough French bread, 1 inch thick
2-3 tbsp. butter
It is important to let the bread soak up all of the mixture. If the bread seems to be dry in the middle add another egg and a 1/4c milk and sugar. Once the bread is fully saturated carefully transport to a heated skillet with melted butter. Adjust the heat so that the bread toasts but doesn't burn. Serve with more butter and dust with powdered sugar to finish. The best weekend breakfast, lunch or dinner depending on your mood.
