Winter Morning Cinnamon French Toast

There is nothing better than a delicious weekend breakfast/brunch. I recently made some delicious Homemade Cinnamon Spice Bread and couldn’t wait to use it to make some homemade cinnamon French toast! This recipe is so quick and easy!! If you use homemade bread it takes it to a whole new level but if you don’t have the time have no fear! Store bought bread can be delicious as well! Finish with a dollop of my homemade cinnamon vanilla whipped cream and you are ready for your weekend brunch!
