Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of gluten-free Canyon Bakehouse bread
  • 1 C heavy whipping cream or whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • dash of allspice
  • 2/3 C brown sugar
  • 2/3 C white sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cut bread into 1 inch cubes
  • Evenly spread on a baking sheet and toast for 15 minutes
  • Meanwhile, whisk the egg then mix in the heavy whipping cream or whole milk
  • Place 1 T butter in a frying pan and heat it up
  • Submerge bread cubes into the egg and cream mixture then shake excess off and place half in the buttered frying pan
  • Fry 2 minutes then flip and fry another 1-2 minutes
  • Once cooked, coat immediately in cinnamon sugar mixture
  • Repeat with the second tablespoon of butter and remaining bread in the frying pan and coat in cinnamon sugar mixture
  • Serve up with warm syrup

Notes

Be sure to shake the extra egg and cream mixture off before coating in cinnamon sugar.
Pro Tip: Be sure to start with eggs that aren't too cold as well. I like to let them sit out for just 10 minutes or so before I start.
If you want to make this dish more festive, use eggnog instead of cream or milk.
You can also get creative with gluten-free extracts like coconut, almond and orange. Just be sure not to add too much. One teaspoon should do it. However you choose to serve them, they are sure to be a hit!
Pro Tip: You can fry the cubes in oil but butter is much tastier! I recommend using real butter. Kerrygold is my favorite brand but Irish roll butter is robust as well.
