Mexican Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

When my mom came home from Mexico, she told us about this amazing french toast she had for breakfast there, and how it was to *die* for. She was going to recreate it for us, and bought a loaf of thick Texas Style bread to do so. She didn't quite get around to it, so I decided to give it a try based on her description... so here is my Mexican Cinnamon Sugar French Toast:

First start with some thick bread, my mom found this Texas Style bread at the store. Then whip up some french toast batter... throw in a few eggs ( I think it ended up being almost a whole egg per slice of toast) and... *heavy cream*. I know, super extravagant... but this is a very rich breakfast. Add a splash of mexican vanilla and whisk together. Then dip in your toast, let it soak up a bit on each side, and fry up on a buttered pan.

While your french toasts are sizzling, pull out your blender and make a quick batch of whipped cream... using the heavy cream again! But, as a fun twist, add some mexican vanilla again, and also some white sugar and some cinnamon. Don't add too much or your whipped cream will be flat, but make sure you put enough cinnamon in to get some flavor going.

Okay, now shake some white sugar and cinnamon onto a dish, and when your toasts finish frying up (you might want to butter them again before this step, to get them nice and sticky... dredge them into the cinnamon/sugar mixture until the entire outside is coated. Mmm. Then let them cool for a few minutes before putting them on a plate and topping with a dollop of the cinnamon whipped cream. *Pure Indulgence*!

Be warned, this french toast is extremely rich... you probably won't be able to eat more than a slice per person. Bobo could not even finish his slice, and I barely polished mine off! Serve with some fresh fruit and you have a lavish breakfast suitable for any amazing vacation resort.
