Directions

Cut the bread into 2-by-4-by-1/2-inch sticks and dry for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Heat the oil in a fryer to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, vanilla, baking powder and nutmeg until all the ingredients are incorporated and the batter is fluffy. In another bowl, mix together the flour, remaining 2 teaspoons cinnamon, sugar and salt. Dip the bread into the batter and then into the flour mixture. Fry about 2 minutes per side. Serve with syrup of choice.
