Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 slices thick bread
  • 2 cups coarsely ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Sliced seasonal fruit

Directions

Beat the eggs, add the cream, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Submerge the bread slices in the egg mixture for 5 minutes. Lay both sides of the bread in the almonds to coat. Heat the butter in a heavy pan until the foam subsides, then add the slices of bread. Cook over low flame until delicately brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, garnish with sliced fruit and serve hot.
