If you like waking up to the aroma of fresh cinnamon , you will love this version of french toast as it is takes the breakfast to a whole new level. It tastes just like Cinnabon and has a perfect shape to dunk into your favorite dips like maple syrup, cream cheese frosting etc.

I have used thick slices of French Brioche cut into equal size strips for this recipe. It is better to use thick and stale bread(or 1 day old bread) slices for this recipe to prevent getting soggy and to retain the shape after frying.IMG_20180602_083306_216.jpg
