Slice the bread and lay it out to begin to dry out a little.
In a cake pan, whisk together the eggs, butter, vanilla and sugar and milk.
Add the flour and salt and whisk again.
Place 6 slices of bread, or whatever fits into the pan and soak for 5 minutes, flip and repeat.
Meanwhile, heat a griddle over medium heat and butter the pan.
Place the cornflakes in a dish and take the dipped bread, letting it drip a little, and coat it in the cornflakes.
Transfer to the heated griddle and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden. Remove to a plate with foil and place in a 200* oven to keep warm.
Repeat with remaining bread
Serve with syrup and a dollop of whipped cream
