In a medium shallow bowl, whisk milk and eggs. Add in essence, salt, cinnamon and pepper and mix well.
Heat a medium-sized skillet and melt butter.
Soak the bread one slice at a time in the egg mix (make sure you coat both sides) and place on the skillet. Cook until golden brown, approximately two to three minutes on each side.
Serve with honey or fruits on the side.
