Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Bread French Toast

This whole recipe came about because my Mom got a brand new bread machine for 8$ at a church yard sale. She bought it to give away, but we had to make sure it worked first. So, we made some bread on Wednesday night and decided to make French Toast with the leftovers of it for Christmas morning.
It turned out very well – even if we had to make do without syrup. (the other in the picture is a fruit salad with blood oranges from the back yard and leftover Egg Cuties from another post).

For bread: (1 lb loaf)
5/8 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups bread flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons rapid rise or bread machine yeast
Put all in machine in that order and turn on regular setting.

French Toast (6 slices)
2 eggs
2 egg whites
3/4 cup milk
1 T vanilla
2 tsp sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg (my Mom actually had the nutmeg, we ground it – so good fresh)
Mix up in a big enough bowl for bread to fit in. Line cookie sheet with foil and spray well with pam. Turn over on to 500.
Dunk bread till well coated and lay on pan. Cook for 5 minutes, flip, 3-4 min on other side.
Dad topped his with light corn syrup. I topped mine with 1 tsp brown sugar and 1 T heavy cream, cool whip, and raisins. Mom topped hers with cool whip. It was very very yummy!
