Ingredients for 4 servings

1 cup cornflakes

1/2 cup light cream or half and half

1/2 cup milk (preferably not skim)

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, preferably Vietnamese

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/3 vanilla bean, sliced lengthwise and seeds scaped out with a paring knife

16 thickly cut slices from day old buttery bread (I used a mix of brioche and challah). If you have no old bread on hand, dry the slices in a 250 degree oven for about ten minutes.

1 tablespoon butter for greasing your skillet or grilddle. (Please do not use oil -- who wants French Toast that tastes like oil?)

2 ounces unsalted butter at room temperature

3/4 teaspoons maple extract

3/4 teaspoons whiskey (I used Irish whiskey); if you are cooking for children, substitute vanilla extract

2 pinches sea salt

1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon finely chopped, toasted pecans
