Recipe Yield: Total time: 25 minutes | Serves 4
3 eggs 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon sugar 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 6 (1-inch thick) slices bread, such as challah or brioche, somewhat stale 3 tablespoons butter or bacon fat, divided Powdered sugar, as desired Maple syrup, preferably grade B, as desired

Step 1 In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the cream, then the vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour the batter into a wide, shallow baking dish.

Step 2 Soak the bread slices on each side, about 2 minutes per side.

Step 3Heat a large, heavy-bottom skillet over medium heat until hot. Melt a tablespoon of butter in the hot pan, then add 2 slices of the bread. Reduce the heat and fry the slices gently on each side until the bread is crisp and golden-brown, and the inside of the bread is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Cover the pan while cooking so the bread toasts evenly and thoroughly.

Step 4Remove the toast and hold on a baking sheet in a warm oven until all of the slices are toasted. Repeat with the remaining slices.

Step 5Slice each piece of toast in half and plate 3 half slices on each of 4 plates. Dust each with powdered sugar, if desired, and serve with warm maple syrup.
