Cinnamon-Raisin French Toast & Maple Syrup

I added 2 tb. cinnamon-sugar and 1/2 c. raisins to my extra bread dough from making pizza crust, baked it up, and made this yummy french toast the next morning for breakfast. Of course you could also use store-bought cinnamon raisin bread. It was great!
Cinnamon-Raisin French Toast
1 loaf cinnamon-raisin bread
8 eggs
1/2 c. milk
2 tb. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
powdered sugar, for dusting
Beat eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Heat griddle and brush with butter. Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup.
Want to make your own syrup? Here's a quick, easy, and delicious recipe:
Maple Syrup
4 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 c. water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple extract
Mix sugars and water in small saucepan. Bring to boil, lower heat and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla and maple extracts. Cool. Store in refrigerator to prevent sugar crystals from forming.
