Zwetschgen-Pofesen (Pronounced s-Vet-ch-gen po-FAY-zin)

When we were in Austria, we tried a dish that we absolutely loved, so once we got back home, we tried to duplicate it. It's Zwetschgen-Pofesen, basically a really unhealthy version of french toast and plum jam. Remember: this is not for health, it's for good food. *We used powidl, plum jam that is hard-pressed to find in the United States.
For 2 Sandwiches-
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon brandy or rum (optional)
1 egg
1 cup milk
1-1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
Tart jam (black cherry or strawberry works)

Mix the cinnamon, rum, egg, milk, sugar and vanilla. Take four slices of bread and spread jam on two. Make a sandwich and put it in milk and egg mixture. Let soak on both sides. Add as much flour as needed to make light pancake batter. Put stove on medium high and melt butter. Place sandwiches in pancake mixture then in pan. Let cook. Flip when golden brown in color.
