Best French Toast Recipe

French toast is one of my favorite sweet breakfast meals. I love how easy it is to make and it is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. My family loves to have a little station with french toast toppings. Here are some of our favorites:

  • fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
  • powdered sugar
  • syrup
  • Nutella
  • different flavors of jam or jelly
  • peanut butter
  • cookie butter
  • berry syrup
  • bacon bits
  • whipped cream
  • butter
  • lemon curd
  • apple pie topping
  • Buttermilk Syrup

French Toast Batter in bowl

French Toast batter

The batter for french toast is the most important part. Good thing making it is the easiest part too! I love the cinnamon in the batter. It gives it such a nice spice. I like to add more cinnamon than it calls for but feel free to add as much or as little as you want.

Add the flour to a large bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk, salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar until smooth! Soak each bread slice in the mixture until it is saturated.

I like to use a fork to help flip the bread from side to side when soaking it in the egg mixture. Don’t worry if your bread breaks a little bit when flipping- you can use your clean fingers to grab the bread if that’s easier!

How to Make French Toast

Heat up a frying pan over medium heat. Butter the pan once it’s hot.

After you have dipped the slice of bread into the egg batter, put it on the pan and cook each side until golden brown (about 1-2 minutes). Serve the french toast hot with your favorite toppings from the list above!

Best Bread for French Toast

There are so many different kinds of bread you can use for making french toast. You can just use any bread you have in your pantry—regular sliced bread works great!

If you want to kick it up a notch, try using thick slices of french bread. I love using slices of sourdough bread- so yummy and a different taste! We’ve also done croissants and even made pound cake french toast!

Can French Toast be made ahead of time?

You can make french toast ahead of time and save them for busy mornings when there is no time to cook! Just wrap a few slices in plastic wrap and keep them in a freezer bag in the freezer. Eat within 1-2 months for best quality. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove!

What to serve with french toast?

Scrambled eggs and bacon make the perfect sides for french toast. You could also have a smoothie (like our Strawberry Banana, Peach, or Kale smoothies).
