  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • coconut flakes
  • powdered sugar

  • Set your bread slices out for an hour or so to dry them out slightly

  • Add the milks, whisk.
  • Add the salt, cinnamon, and vanilla and whisk together until everything is mixed completely
  • Melt 1 to 2 TBS of butter on your griddle and spread to cover the whole top
  • Dip (dunk) 1 slice of bread in the egg/milk mixture, turn over and repeat
  • Lay it on the griddle and continue with the same dip/dunk of bread until you fill your griddle with the amount of slices that will lay flat
