6 slices tsoureki bread, 1 inch thick
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
ground cinnamon, to taste
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons butter
Toppings: Greek honey, maple syrup, or confectioner's sugar and some fresh fruit
Combine the eggs and sugar in a 10 inch round deep dish pie plate. Whisk well to break up the eggs and combine.
Add milk, cream, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Whisk well.
Dip 3 slices of tsoureki into the custard. Pierce the slices with a fork so that the custard really soaks in.
Place a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat.
Melt a tablespoon of butter in the skillet and place the soaked tsoureki slices in the pan.
Cook about 2 minutes on each side until golden.
Repeat the same steps with the remaining 3 pieces of tsoureki.
Serve with fresh fruit and topped with maple syrup or Greek honey.
