Cinnamon Roll French Toast

My youngest loves cinnamon rolls. The sweet combination of cinnamon, spices, and sweet frosting will send her into ecstasy...and she's 5. 

I've been making french toast for as long as I can remember. During my early college days, my roommate would ask me to make it at the wee hours of the morning to offset a night of drinking. This version of french toast is sweet and flavorful and if done right will have a soft custard like center.

Cinnamon Roll French Toast

5 eggs
1/4 cup milk or cream
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp fresh ground nutmeg (approx)

6 slices Texas Toast, thick cut French Bread, OR 8 slices regular bread

Mix first 5 ingredients together until well blended. Soak bread in egg mixture until soggy. Cook on a hot, buttered griddle until lightlty browned. Turn once. The center should "poof" a little while cooking.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and butter. Serve with syrup or Orange Whipped Cream.

Orange Whipped Cream

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp orange marmalade

Whip cream with vanilla and sugar until medium stiff peaks form. Fold in marmalde. Serve.
