  • 24 slices raisin bread
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar (more if desired)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • maple syrup as accompaniment


Combine milk and next 4 ingredients, beating until well blended. Pour into large bowl. Dip bread in milk mixture, turning to coat both sides evenly. Place on baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, then turn slices over and continue baking an additional 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Dust lightly with additional confectioners' sugar, if desired. Serve with warm maple syrup. Variations: Red raspberry or strawberry preserves can be substituted for fresh bananas in filling, or you can use fresh strawberries.
