This French Toast Recipe is a weekend staple at our home, and one of the only ways that our daughter eats egg (and she doesn’t know it!). We also love to slice our bread and make cinnamon french toast sticks for a fun finger food breakfast!
French Toast Recipe
To make our classic French toast, whisk together eggs, heavy cream (or milk), vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a dish deep enough to soak your bread pieces in. I usually use an 8 x 8 baking dish or a pie pan for my egg mix.
Set your first one or two pieces of bread in the egg mixture (allow bread to soak in the egg mixture for at least 30 seconds per side) while your large frying pan or skillet is heating to medium.
Melt butter in your frying pan or skillet, then add the egg soaked bread pieces.
Cook the French Toast for approximately 2 minutes per side or until a nice golden brown and the egg coating is cooked through.
Serve immediately, topped with butter and confectioners sugar, syrup, or jelly.
French Toast Recipe
- 7 large eggs
- 1/2 c (120 ml) heavy cream (milk works as well)
- 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
- 1 tsp (6 g) cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 1/2 Tbsp (7 g) butter
- Combine eggs, heavy cream or milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon & nutmeg in a dish deep enough to soak your bread pieces in. Whisk all ingredients until combined well.
- Heat a large frying pan to medium high heat. Melt butter before adding french toast. Soak bread for 30 seconds per side in the egg mixture. Transfer to heated frying pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side (depending on how hot your frying pan cooks) until golden brown and all egg is cooked. Serve immediately.
