    3. 2 tbs Maple Syrup
    4. 1 fresh baked baguette, this one is from a local bakery

To begin, slice the baguette in long discs as shown

In a warmed cast iron skillet or griddle:

heat Vanilla Olive Oil over medium high heat, for 1-2 minutes. Once pan is coated and oil moves fluidly when swirled in skillet add freshly battered bread. Batter should sizzle slightly but not too much to avoid burning. Cook 2-2.5 minutes on each side until desired texture is achieved around 5 minutes total depending on heat and thickness of the pan.
