Sweet Cinnamon Filling
3 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
8 slices soft white bread, crusts removed
2 tbsp butter
Maple syrup, for serving
1) For the sweet cinnamon filling, in a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Stir in sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon until smooth. In a second small bowl, whisk eggs and milk. In a third small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.
2) Using a rolling pin, roll out crustless bread slices until thin. Spread a layer of the sweet cinnamon filling on each slice and roll up tightly.
3) Melt butter over medium heat in a large non-stick pan. Dip each roll into the egg mixture and place in the pan, cooking in 2 batches if pan isn't big enough. Saute for 1-2 minutes per side, until the outer layers is golden and crisp. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve with maple syrup.
