Cinnamon French Toast with Warm Vanilla Syrup

You COULD use regular bread to make this delicious French toast, but buying Kneaders Chunky Cinnamon Bread makes all the difference. We also love to drizzle this with homemade vanilla caramel syrup on top. 
1 loaf Kneaders Chunky Cinnamon Bread, sliced
6 eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
1/8 tsp. salt
1 T. brown sugar
Optional:  sliced strawberries, sweetened whipped cream, warm vanilla syrup
Heat a griddle to medium heat.  In a shallow dish, mix eggs, milk, salt and brown sugar until well combined.  Spread butter on griddle until melted and bubbly. Dip bread slices in egg mixture, then place on buttered griddle.  Cook on both sides until nicely browned on each side.  Serve with warm syrup, sliced strawberries, and a dollop of whipped cream. 
1 cube butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 T. corn syrup
1/2 tsp. baking soda
In a  LARGE saucepan, melt butter, sugar, vanilla and corn syrup.  Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute. Stir in baking soda and boil 10 seconds more, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.  Mixture will bubble up and foam, so be sure to use a large enough saucepan so it doesn't boil over.  Serve warm.  Refrigerate leftovers.
