If you were lucky enough to take part in last season’s Mother’s Day brunch at Kings Island’s International Restaurant, then you might remember the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast that Kings Island Executive Chef James Major made for the occasion. As Mother’s Day 2020 approaches, we wanted to share that delicious recipe with you.

(Hint: Dad’s, treat mom on Mother’s Day, it’s not that hard to make!)

Here’s the recipe, and you can see our family’s results below! A special thank you to Chef Major for sending the recipe our way. If you try it, share your picture on social media, and don’t forget to tag us using #KingsIsland – we might share it too!

  1. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and set aside briefly.
  2. Whisk together cinnamon mixture, eggs, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow container.
  3. In a 10-inch or 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Dip bread in egg mixture. Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side.

  3. Great over French Toast, Pancakes or even on their own with Whipped Cream.

Whipped Cream

  • 2 Tablespoons Powder or Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  1. Place a metal mixing bowl and metal whisk into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Place the sugar into the mixing bowl and add the whipping cream. Whisk just until the cream reaches stiff peaks.
