How to make french toast

Picture of how to make french toast
My boyfriend makes fantastic french toast. Super fantastic! I've tried making french toast lots of times, and it never turns out like I want it to, so I made him document french toast with me. :D

So I'll show you how Tyler makes his french toast, but I'll also simplify the ingredients list a bit. He likes getting fancy and using every sugar we have in the house. I basically stood next to him and demanding to know timing and how much of each thing he used all morning. I'm happy he still likes me!

I'll also go over how to make yummy french toast toppings. You can never have too many toppings.

Just be aware this version of french toast is more like a dessert than a breakfast. :D

(We also had a food porn face-off and each plated our french toast the way we wanted and photographed it... mine has maple syrup, strawberries and powdered sugar, and his has a cream cheese sauce and strawberries.)

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/8-1/4 cup sugar of choice
  • 1/2 cup of milk/soy milk
  • six slices of hearty bread (we like sourdough)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon to taste - we used about 1/4 tsp
Tyler uses white sugar, brown sugar and powdered sugar in the milk/egg mixture. He mostly used powdered sugar, which is a good idea because it keeps the mixture from being clumpy. :)

For topping:
  • macerated strawberries are super yummy! slice the strawberries before you begin the french toast and sprinkle with a few tablespoons of sugar. mix it all together and then let it sit. :)
  • Tyler makes a cream cheese topping too - whisk together a bit of cream cheese, a little sugar, some milk and vanilla, and BAM!
  • powdered sugar
  • maple syrup

Step 2: Combine the milk and eggs

Beat the eggs and then add the milk and whisk a little more. You'll know that it's good and mixed when it's a nice cream color. :)

do u have to use milk in it

jessyratfink (author)  liz.gobernatz2 months ago

You don't have to - you can sub in nut or soy milks instead. It might not be as rich though, if you use something really watery or low in fat.

can you use half and half instead of normal milk

jessyratfink (author)  californiagirl552 months ago

Yep!

What about almond milk?

I dident have any REAL milk, just almond milk.

Oh and i substituted the vanilla extract ( GOSH, wish i had some ;_; )

for almond oil. Is that bad or good? It be awesome if you could awnser (c:

Yup! I've made it using both nut and soy milks - it doesn't come out quite as rich but it's still good. And I think the almond oil will work well to add flavor :D

Thanks for awsering.

It really means something to me :)

I loved the photos and the simple recipe. I also found the importance of using the right kind of bread when making a french toast. It can either make it or break it. This article was helpful in finding the right bread how to make french toast. And another tip is... toast your bread first, before dipping it into the egg/milk mix. This gives it a good solid base and prevents a soggy toast. Hope this helps.

I made this today, complete with cream cheese topping and a raspberry/strawberry mix topping. Delicious! Though I need to have a little lie down now ;) I reduced the sugar slightly and it's just as good without toppings too - I made enough to keep in the fridge, as per your advice. This was my first ever attempt at French Toast and I'm really pleased with the results. Thanks for the recipe :)

I was reminded some time ago how similar "French toast" is to "bread pudding"; very similar ingredients, with the main difference being degree of sweetness, and cooking technique.
