Prep the Custard Mixture:
In a shallow bowl or a pie plate, mix together eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, vanilla & a pinch of salt.
Soaking the French Bread:
Cut bread into thick slices and place in the custard mixture. Soak well on both sides, allowing the egg mixture to absorb the bread.
After that, place the soaked bread in the cornflakes mixture bowl and coat well on both sides.
Prep the French Toast:
Heat the griddle or the skillet, lightly spray some oil before placing a pat of butter. Once it's sizzling, you can put the bread and allow to cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
Once all the bread slices have been browned in the griddle or skillet, transfer them to a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake at 350F (or 150C) for about 5-6 minutes to cook any egg that didn't brown on sides and to crisp up the topping.
Serving the French Bread:
1.) You can use sugar-coated cornflakes or cinnamon flavor cornflakes.
2.) I used the Texas bread here but you can use Brioche or Challah bread which is ideal for French toast.
