Beat eggs and cream till frothy. Dip bread slices into egg batter and drop into a non stick pan. Sprinkle cinnamon on one side, cook for two to three minutes until it’s just turning brown, and flip. Sprinkle cinnamon on the other side and lightly brown as well. Finish by sprinkling powdered sugar on top.
