'Tis the Season for Breakfast - Cinnamon French Toast

This recipe came from Panera Bread’s website.  Need I say more?  If you still don’t have a bread machine, store bought cinnamon raisin toast will work but probably not taste as good as yesterday’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread.
Cinnamon Raisin French Toast
8 slices 1/2 inch thick Cinnamon Raisin Bread
4 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the french toast custard, combine using a hand whisk the milk, heavy cream, eggs, honey, vanilla extract and the salt.  This custard can be made well in advance.  Give a brisk stir before making the toast.
Transfer the custard to a casserole or open shallow dish for dipping.
Dip one slice into the custard and turn over after about 15 seconds.  Transfer the slice to a plate while dipping another slice into the custard.
Place a large skillet on a medium fire.  Allow the pan to heat thoroughly before pouring 1 tablespoon of the melted butter into the pan.
Place both slices carefully into the skillet and cook on each side until golden brown or about 2 minutes.
Repeat until all the french toast is cooked.
