  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fruity booze, such as apple or apricot brandy, or orange liqueur
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 to 10 (¾-inch-thick) slices apple cinnamon loaf, preferably stale (1 loaf of this bread should yield about 11 slices at that thickness including the ends)
  • Unsalted butter, as needed
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
  • Pure maple syrup, for serving


  • In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, booze, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Then gently beat in the milk to combine.
  • Over medium heat, melt about a tablespoon of butter in a large non-stick skillet or griddle. Dip bread one slice at a time into the custard mixture and allow it to soak for about 30 seconds on each side. Place 2 or 3 slices of soaked bread onto the skillet (only as many pieces as will comfortably fit depending on the size you use), and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining slices, adding more butter as needed to the pan. French toast can be kept warm in a low oven.
  • Dust French toast with confectioners’ sugar and serve with maple syrup on the side for drizzling. Serve hot.
