step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the lemon. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lemon to get 1 teaspoon (save the lemon for future use if desired). In a shallow baking dish, whisk together the cream, eggs, vanilla powder, and a pinch of salt. Working in batches if necessary, add the bread and let soak 2 to 3 minutes per side. In a large bowl, combine the warming spices, lemon zest, and sugar. Using your fingers, massage the mixture to release the oils.

2 Make the dipping syrup

Meanwhile, melt half the butter in a small bowl in the microwave (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a small bowl). Add the maple syrup; stir to combine.

3 Make the french toast sticks & serve your dish

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the remaining butter on medium-high until melted. Working in batches if necessary, add the soaked bread to the pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut lengthwise into 1-inch sticks, then transfer to the bowl of spiced sugar. Toss to coat. Serve the french toast sticks with the syrup on the side. Enjoy!
