This Recipe For Cinnamon Raisin French Toast From Children’s Singer Joanie Leeds Is A Breakfast Do

Fabu kids’ singer/songwriter Joanie Leeds shared her recipe with Celebrity Parents Magazine for her favorite French toast. Says Joanie: “My favorite food growing up and to this day (for breakfast at least) is French Toast. My mom used to make it for me when I would refuse to eat nothing else. Now, I often make this for special breakfasts when I don’t have a gig and actually have time to cook!”

But before you drown this delish recipe in store-bought maple syrup, think again. “The trick is the real maple syrup,” says Leeds. “Aunt Jemima and her friends just don’t make the cut!”
