2 1-inch thick slices of homemade or country-style white bread
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 to 1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Pinch of salt
1 can (15 ounces) pitted sweet cherries, drained
Cinnamon sugar, optional

Place bread flat in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Stir together 1/2 cup milk, almond extract and salt. Pour over the bread, adding more milk, if necessary, to allow bread to be evenly saturated. Allow bread to soak 5 minutes. Turn bread over and allow to soak until most of the milk has been absorbed. Heat a large oiled nonstick skillet or griddle over medium low heat for at least 3 minutes or until hot. Add the bread and pour over any remaining liquid. Cook 5 minutes per side or until golden. Heat the cherries. Serve warm cherries over the milk toast. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired. Serves 2.

VARIATION: Substitute room temperature fruit jam for the cherries and cinnamon sugar.
