  • 6 – ¾ inch slices of Panettone
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup refrigerated eggnog
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Maple Brandy Whipped Cream

  • ¾ cup heavy cream

  • 1 tbsp. maples syrup
  • 1-2 tsp. brandy
  1. Combine the wet ingredients for the French toast together and mix well into a smooth custard.
  2. Bring a frying pan or skillet to temperature (medium) and grease with butter.
  3. Quickly dip both sides of the Panettone into the custard mixture and place onto the hot pan or skillet. Cook each side for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. While the French toast is cooking, prepare the Maple Brandy Whipped Cream. Add all the ingredients together, and whisk by hand or electric mixture until soft peaks form, about 4-6 minutes.
  5. When the French toast is ready, place on a plate, dust with powdered sugar, and dollop with a generous serving of whipped cream. Also, serve with maple syrup if desired.

*For a crispy French toast, cook the French toast in a pan or skillet first and then finish in a 475 degrees F for 2-3 minutes.
