Cinnamon French Toast

I've been experimenting with french toast lately. A lot. Is that a crime? I didn't think so.
I've tried:
-orange french toast (just add some orange juice to the beaten eggs)
-vanilla french toast (just add a touch of vanilla to the beaten eggs)
and
-apple french toast (just add some apple juice to the beaten eggs)
All of them were good and I still licked the plate and all, but I think cinnamon is by far the best because its closest to the classic french toast flavors. I added cinnamon to the beaten eggs and light brown sugar and maple syrup as a topping. Doesn't it look delicious? I served it with grapefruit juice as something tart to balance the sweet. I wish I had time to make this every morning! What's your favorite way to eat french toast?

Cinnamon French Toast
Challah bread, however many slices you need
2-4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp cinnamon

1 Slice up your challah, medium thick slices. Prepare a bowl with the beaten eggs and add the cinnamon.
2 Dip the challah slices into the beaten eggs and let it absorb for a few moments, both sides.
3 Place egg'd challah on a skillet over medium high heat and cook until brown on both sides.
4 Continue to dip and cook the slices until all the slices are cooked. Top with favorite toppings (Maple syrup is a must!)

Experimenting with french toast is certainly NOT a crime, even if it has been a lot and especially not if it looks like this! Whoa! I like any kind of french toast but challah bread would definitely kick it up a notch! Have you tried stuffed french toast with bananas? So good!
