1. Into a flattish bowl whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and zest until well combined.

2. In a frying pan melt one tablespoon butter until frothy.

3. Dip one or two slices of bread depending on your pan size into the egg mixture and straight into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes then turn for another two. Remove and continue with the remaining bread.
