Yield: 1 Servings
|1 pounds||Loaf unsliced firm white bread; crusts untrimmed|
|½ teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
|1 pinch||Nutmeg; freshly grated|
|Oil for deep frying|
1. Cut bread into 4 x 2 x 2-inch rectangular logs. Let stand to dry slightly.
2. Blend milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon vanilla and nutmeg in medium bowl.
Pour into shallow pan large enough to hold bread in 1 layer. Arrange bread in milk mixture, turning to coat wall sides. Chill until liquid is absorbed, several hours or overnight.
3. Heat oil to 360 degrees F. Fry logs in batches until golden brown on all sides, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with whipped butter and syrup. (I have frozen these logs. After frying them, I let the cool. Freeze and reheat in a 325 degree F. oven until hot, about 10 to 15 minutes.)
