Preheat oven to 325 degrees and lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Combine all ingredients for bread (flour through 2 tablespoons Coffee-mate) in a large bowl. Stir just until mixed.
Pour batter into prepared pan, place in oven and bake for 60 minutes. Let bread cool completely before proceeding.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Cut bread into slices. In a pie plate, whisk together eggs, milk, and Coffee-mate.
Dip bread slices in egg mixture briefly, coating each side.
Lightly coat skillet with butter and place 2 pieces of bread at a time in the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining bread. (If doing more than about 8 slices, you will need more egg mixture.)
Beat heavy cream using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment. Once stiff peaks start to form, add 1 tablespoon Coffee-mate and turn mixer off once it is mixed in.
Serve French toast with whipped cream and maple syrup.
