Cinnamon Raisin French Toast

Cinnamon Raisin French Toast

Seems like this recipe is becoming a favorite around the house.  As a result, I seem to be making it a lot and I have been able to try out different ingredients and pretty much perfect it.  Most of all the frosting glaze that gets drizzles over the top of the hot french toast.

Personally I like the frosting to be thick and creamy because it reminds me of a cinnabon with extra frosting (Can you say yum?). But, If you like a thinner glaze all you have to do is add a little heavy cream until you get your desired consistency.  As an added tip, I usually make the frosting the night before and store it in the fridge until morning.



Cinnamon Raisin French Toast
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • .5 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 12 thick slices of bread
  • ¼ cup butter
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, salt, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Mix until well combined
  2. Slowly whisk the flour into the milk mixture so that it is well combined with not too many lumps (some lumps are fine)
  3. Butter a frying pan at medium low heat
  4. Dip a piece of raisin bread into the wet mixture so that it is just wet on both sides, then place the bread into the frying pan
  5. Repeat for remaining bread
  6. Fry bread until golden brown on both sides
  7. Smother the delicious cream cheese frosting all over the french toast
  8. Alt: Regular maple syrup also tastes amazing!!!
Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  • ½ cup heavy cream (optional)
  1. Allow butter and cream cheese to soften
  2. In large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract together
  3. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar (about a half cup at a time)
  4. To thin the frosting out, slowly add in heavy cream until the desired consistency is reached
