The ONLY French Toast Recipe I make because it became a family favorite breakfast! Flour strengthens the milk and egg mixture so it doesn’t feel like your eating wet and soggy bread and the smell of cinnamon calls out breakfast!

This is the BEST French toast recipe in my book! It freezes, tastes delish and is easy enough to make for my daughter (she’s 9!) Flour is the ingredient you have been missing out on and I feel like it’s the batter thickener that makes a difference! I’ve found Walmart $1 French Bread rolls to work best and for a real bargain too! I like to buy them in bulk and pop them in the freezer for when I want to make French toast or one of the quickest tuna melts! Serve this with my homemade strawberry jam or oven baked bacon for an all star breakfast!

Q&A

How long should I soak the bread when making French toast?

When you have the perfect milk to egg ratio, you want to soak each side of bread to the count of 3! You just need to seep through the surface of the bread. The bread you use will make a difference and your batter should be just right.

Why is my french toast soggy?

When the batter is too runny or you have the wrong bread and not enough binding ingredients in the batter (like eggs or flour) it can make for a soggy mess. It’s also important to cook these over low and slow. Flipping them too soon can also result in soggy results, so it’s important to keep those things in mind.

How Long should I fry each side without burning my French toast?

I’ve found the that 3-4 minutes per side is perfect! You want to make sure the french toast cooks over a medium-low temperature and that your skillet is well greased and completely pre-heated before starting.

What kind of bread should I use for French Toast?

Thick bread is best for making French toast. Some popular selections are brioche, Texas toast, french bread, or any other bread that can be sliced thick.

Tips

  1. French toast freezes well and makes a great make-ahead breakfast! Make a double batch and flash freeze left overs then keep stored in a large zip-loc bag.
  2. French toast re-heats best in an oven baked at 400°F for 7 minutes!
  3. Margarine makes a delicious topping for french toast. Place a thin slice over yours!
  4. Cinnamon won’t separate as much if mixed with the flour first. When added directly to cold milk cinnamon can tend to clump.

    Can you use almond milk instead of dairy milk in this French toast recipe?

      I think almond milk would work just fine, Karen.
