Who doesn’t love French Toast? especially covered in berries, syrup and whip cream! This recipe is so delicious and super easy to make. French toast is a great breakfast, but also a fun brunch menu option and is great reheated. Top it with whatever you like, and if you want to try a new twist, use a different kind of bread. Invite some friends over for a breakfast get-together, you will all love this yummy French Toast recipe!

Can you make French Toast with just egg whites?

Yes, you can. Substitute 2 egg whites for every 1 egg called for in the recipe.

Do I have to use a griddle to make French Toast?

A griddle is a great option for making French Toast because it is completely flat and usually allows for more space to cook your French Toast. However, if you don’t own a griddle, you can use a regular skillet. We recommend using nonstick skillets or well seasoned cast iron.

Can I freeze French Toast?

Yes you can! French toast freezes really well and makes for a great, easy breakfast option for busy mornings.

To Freeze: cool french toast completely on a wire rack and then transfer the bread to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. French toast can be stacked with a sheet of parchment paper in between each layer. Freeze until solid, then transfer to a resealable plastic freezer bag for long term storage.

To Reheat: Microwave on high for about 1 minute per slice until warmed through OR toast in a toaster until heated through for a crispy exterior.

What kind of bread should I use to make French Toast?

You can use any kind of sliced bread to make French Toast. French bread and other bakery style breads work in addition to sliced sandwich type breads. If you want to kick things up a notch try using thick sliced challah bread, Texas toast, or brioche.

PRO TIP: The syrup you use with your French Toast can make all the difference. For a French Toast that will absolutely knock your socks off, use our recipe for Liquid Cinnamon Roll Syrup. It’ll blow your mind!

Literally the best french toast my husband and I have ever had! I can’t believe the difference the addition of flour makes. This will be my go to recipe from now on. Can’t wait to make the cinnamon syrup!

I use maple syrup in the egg batter instead of brown sugar.

So I used the basic recipe and added a twist. Made stuffed challah bread. We have a small homestead with dairy goats. So basically I used our fresh goats milk, eggs, chevere mixed with our own cajeta.. so delicious. Thank you.

Banana bread works great cut thick

Sue Hults

Sounds great! Flour is unexpected for sure. We have a Sara Lee brand Artisano loaf that is slightly thicker sliced which is also tasty for French toast.

Mandy

Love this recipe. It creates a beautiful coating that adds flavor.

Question-due to an egg allergy, what is a good replacement For egg in French toast?

The best replacement for eggs is a commercial liquid egg substitute found either next to the eggs or in the vegetarian/vegan section of your grocery store.

Can I mix all of the ingredients together and leave it in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days? Then whisk it again and make the French toast? Thanks for all of the great recipes that you share. Stay safe.

Can Splenda or other sugar substitutes be use instead of regular sugar for the syrup?

We don’t recommend sugar substitutes in this recipe.

Excellent recipe. My daughter and I loved it.

It says to whisk until smooth but I could not get the flour to break up from the lumps. No matter how long or hard I whisked. I used gluten free all purpose flour since I’m allergic to gluten but I don’t think that should’ve mattered. I did have to substitute one tsp of vanilla extract for unsweetened vanilla almond milk since I ran out of extract. Don’t know if that also made a difference.

Gluten free flours do not work interchangeably with all-purpose flour, and that is almost certainly why it didn’t work out. I also would not recommend substituting vanilla extract for vanilla almond milk. The taste would have been very off.

I was looking for a recipe for delicious French Toast and this recipe came up.
The only drawback is the quantity, I only needed it for two.
How do I cut down this recipe?
Thank you

You can easily cut this recipe in half if you don’t want to make so much. Also, French toast freezes really well. So, leftovers can actually be a good thing!
