In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar.) Stir together well.
In a square dish, or wide bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (milk, eggs and vanilla extract.)
Add dry ingredients and wet ingredients together and whisk vigorously. Batter will be a little lumpy.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Begin dipping bread slices into the batter.
Dip one side of the bread, flip it over and dip the other.
Let excess batter drip off then place coated bread immediately onto the pre-heated skillet.
Flip when browned and then brown the other side. About 4-5 minutes per side.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle on some maple syrup to serve!
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator (covered) for up to 2 days. They can also be frozen. Flash freeze the French toast on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes. Then place slices into a freezer safe ziptop bag. Freeze for up to 2 months.
