I was looking for a recipe for Denny's Cinnamon Swirl French Toast and found this. It doesn't look the same, but I think it tastes better!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank skibunny for this recipe.

We liked it. Not the all-time-best. But definitely satisfying. I'd suggest that people read all the comments. Especially the one from Cheryl D.

My kids love this french toast. I have streamlined it though. I use the Sara Lee Brown Sugar cinnamon bread and only make half the recipe. You use about 10 slices of bread (2 of them you cut in half). I mixed up the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and spread it out on the sprayed cookie sheet. Dip the bread in the egg mixture and then put them on the cookie sheet. You bake it for the 25 mins and you end up with wonderful french toast that taste like a sticky bun without the nuts! Add a little bit of maple syrup if you like. And we like! And our favorite time for breakfast is for supper!
