These ridiculously easy dippers were a staple brunch item in my house growing up. Maybe it was because of the sweet cream filling or the welcomed sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top, but these breakfast finger foods were worthy enough to promote a fight between my brothers and I to get our paws on the last ones. My mom especially loved this recipe because we could all be involved helping her in the kitchen as little tikes due to its simple steps. So, basically what it comes down to is: this french toast is so easy that children (or college kids) can make them.
