This is a recipe that is super easy and fast…delicious French toast that makes every morning special.
Who does not like waking up in the morning with the smell of French toast?
The sweet, buttery, cinnamon eggy smell…so enticing…
I must confess that I do not make French toast as much as I should considering that I bake so much bread. Most of the time the bread is gone…
I purposely cut 4 thick slices of my egg sandwich bread and separated for this recipe.
Back in Brazil, we call it “rabanada” and usually serve by sprinkling with cinnamon and sugar, so the concept of maple syrup was totally new to me.
– Why French toast is so versatile?
You can use all kind of bread and all kind of egg mixture.
– How long should I dip the bread into the egg mixture?
I personally like mine French toast kind of crispy on the outside and almost creamy inside…almost like a bread pudding. Can you picture it?
– Ready to try this super easy and delicious recipe?
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup milk (or any dairy free milk of your preference)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 4 thick slices egg sandwich bread or challah
In a flat bottom plate whisk together egg, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon
Place bread slice, one at a time into the egg mixture and flip to the other side, making sure both sides of bread are well-coated with the egg mixture. Set aside.
Repeat with all the remaining slices of bread. Make sure the bread absorbs the egg mixture.
Melt butter in a large skillet and place the slices in skillet, cook on medium heat until golden brown and flip to the other side, about 3 minutes.
Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit or whatever your palate desire.

Making this french toast reminds me of my nearby bakery in our neighbourhood back home in India, he was the only baker and the best baker. Your french toast resembles what he made and with fresh bread of course.
One of my favorite breakfast treats! I love mine with just a sprinkle of sugar and berries. And if it was made with some slices of your wonderful homemade bread, even better!!!
Yes, it is our favorite too…like you mention, great with homemade bread.

I am usually lazy making my French toast- I usually just use a skinny piece of store-bought bread. Your thick-cut bread really makes this recipe soar!
Oh Fran, the thick slice is a treat indeed…
The thick sliced bread and vanilla really add such a nice touch to your classic French toast. I would love to start my Saturday morning with this!
