American's French Toast

"What's one thing the world's cousine has in common with Americans? Well, practically everything. We're a mixed baggy of foods here... With one addition-- our versions are HUGE. Extreme, non-sensical and, above all else, delicious. Here's an American's take on French toast. Fun fact: there's nothing "French" about French toast. It's origins stem from Germany. So yeah."

Recipe Card


  • 1 4 x 4 slice Punalu'u Loafa
  • 5 Fresh Farm Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Ungranulated Sugar
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 juice of Orange


  • Step 1

    Divide the loaf into 4 equal slices-- removing the ends-- they should be 4 inches by 4 inches.

  • Step 2

    Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk well. You'll know it's completely mixed when there are no clumps of cinnamon left and it's entirely incorporated.

  • Step 3

    Pour the mixture into a deep pan large enough to hold all the bread. Place the bread in the mixture, rotating every 3 to 4 minutes until all of the mixture has been absorbed. Be sure to rotate on all sides.

  • Step 4

    Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and drop fat knob of butter in. Sear the bread on all sides and move to a deep pan.

  • Step 5

    Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve with bacon and an unhealthy amount of maple syrup.
