Rabanadas are a traditional Brazilian French toast recipe that was introduced to us by the Portuguese. They’re made with stale bread that is soaked in sweet milk, fried and then, rolled into a cinnamon sugar mixture.

1. Slice the bread into 1.5" thick rounds and set aside.


2. In a deep dish, add the sugar and cinnamon. Whisk to combine, and set aside. This is the coating for the deep fried French toasts.


3. In a medium deep frying pan, add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and about 1.5" up the side. Set aside. Line a large plate with paper towels and set aside. We will drain our rabanada here.
