  1. Step
    In a saucepan, heat cream with maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon stick over medium heat, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a shallow dish and stir in milk; let cool slightly.
  2. Step
    In a bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla. Whisk into cooled milk mixture and remove cinnamon stick.
  3. Step
    Preheat oven to 250°F (121°C).
  4. Step
    Add about 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter to a griddle or large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Dip 1 slice of bread into custard mixture, coating both sides well. Let excess drip off, then place on griddle. Repeat with bread slices to fit as many slices as possible, leaving enough space around them to flip. Let cook for about 3 minutes until golden, then flip to cook the other side another 2 minutes or until golden.
  5. Step
    Serve French toast dolloped with 1 cup (250 mL) Canadian vanilla yogurt and a drizzle of more maple syrup if desired.
