  1. 1

    In a shallow dish, beat together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla extract, and sugar until combined. Dip the bread slices into the mixture, so they are covered.

  2. 2

    Melt a little of the butter in a large frying pan and fry the bread slices, in batches, for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden, adding more butter for each batch. Keep the cooked slices warm while you cook the other batches.

  3. 3

    Cut the toasts in half diagonally, and arrange 4 pieces on each serving plate. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
