Ingredients

  • 8 10 ¾-inch thick slices of French bread
  • 4-5 extra large eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions

Combine ingredients, beating well with a wire wisk. Lay bread in a shallow pan and pour egg mixture over bread slices, turning over to coat both sides. Let bread soak about five minutes.
In an ovenproof heavy skillet, melt butter on medium heat. Arrange slices of bread. Brown on one side, then turn and place in a 400 degree oven until puffy. Arrange on plate and top with Brandy Amaretto Sauce. Garnish with whipped cream and almonds.

Brandy Amaretto Sauce*: Melt 1 stick butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 cup sugar and ¼ cup water; cook, stirring constantly for two minutes. Gradually add butter and sugar to 1 beaten egg, beating constantly. Slowly stir in 2 oz. Amaretto and 1 oz. Brandy.

* Please note: Sauce should be made ahead of time and kept warm in a double-broiler
