Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ tsp (1.25 ml) cinnamon
2 tsp (10 ml) castor sugar
½ C (125 ml) maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 180° C
Slice the little loaves into 1 cm slices. Divide and spread the cream cheese between half the slices. Top with the remaining slices to form sandwiches.
Mix the eggs and cream together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Soak the mini sandwiches in the egg mixture on both sides. Arrange sandwiches in an ovenproof dish and pour the remaining egg and cream mixture over. Allow the bread to stand for 15 minutes.
Mix the cinnamon and castor sugar together in a bowl and the sprinkle over the bread.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Drizzle the maple syrup over the bread as it comes out of the oven and serve warm.
