Eggnog French Toast with Maple Butter – delicious challah bread dipped in an eggnog batter, browned to perfection and topped with homemade Maple Butter. Finish it off with a drizzle of pure maple syrup and you’ve got yourself a breakfast treat that will delight your loved ones this holiday season.
Yes, the holidays are upon us. Can you believe it?
I mean, each year they come so very quickly!
I so love the holidays because it means time spent with family and friends, and my favorite pastime, baking!
Ever since I can remember, baking and the holidays have gone hand in hand. There was never a Thanksgiving or Christmas when there weren’t cookies, pie or some kind sweets on the dessert table. We often spent both of those holidays at my Grandmother’s, surrounded by family with the smells of cinnamon, vanilla and lots of delicious food filling the air.
McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract is something I grew up with. There’s something comforting about that brown bottle with the red and white label sitting on the counter. It’s like an old friend and something that generations of women in my family have used, and no doubt will use for generations to come.
Looks pretty darn good, doesn’t it?
I look forward to holiday baking every year, and doing it with products I know are consistent in quality, have exceptional ingredients and will give my treats exceptional flavor that family and friends will not soon forget. It’s also quality time spent with my daughters and son, laughing, creating, and making memories to remember for years to come.
