Arme Ritter (Poor Knife Fritters)
3/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
grated rind of 1 small lemon
10 slices bread
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup margarine
Beat eggs into milk with whisk or fork. Add sugar, vanilla and lemon rind.
Dip bread slices into egg mixture.
Then dip bread into dry breadcrumbs.
Working quickly, rub some of the margarine onto preheated (about 325 degrees) griddle (I used a butter stick but you coud use a spoonful and spread it around the skillet).
Brown prepared bread slices on skillet for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown, then flip and cook an additional 5-7 minutes.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Serve with syrup and enjoy!
