French Toast
Add this classic French toast recipe to your breakfast rotation. It’s so easy to make with simple ingredients and very little effort! Everyone will enjoy the golden, tender, slightly sweet French toast.


  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup milk (180ml)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 8 slices bread
  • Butter


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon, and whisk until completely combined.
  3. Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter in the hot pan.
  4. Place each slice of bread in the egg mixture and soak for a few seconds. Flip over and soak the other side. Carefully transfer the soaked bread to your hot pan and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  5. Flip over and cook the other side until golden. Serve warm with additional butter and maple syrup, if desired.


  • Add richness by swapping out the whole milk. You can substitute ¼ cup of milk for heavy cream or half and half.
  • Add citrus zest. Add some lemon zest or orange zest to the batter to add a light citrus flavor.
  • Buy unsliced bread if possible. If you slice the bread yourself, you can control how thick each slice is. Thicker slices will give you fluffy, soft French toasts. Thinner slices can sometimes get too soggy and fall apart under the batter.
  • Use enough butter. You will likely need to add more butter to the hot skillet in between cooking each slice or a couple of slices. Don’t be shy! It adds flavor and creates the crispy edges.
  • Use a mixture of vegetable oil and butter if the butter is getting too hot. Butter has a low smoke point, so it burns fairly easily. If your toast is burning instead of becoming a nice golden brown, add a little vegetable oil to the butter. Vegetable oil has a high smoke point to prevent burning, and you will still get the delicious buttery flavor from the melted butter.
  • Keep the skillet heated at medium heat. If the skillet is too hot, you will end up with burned toast that is soggy and undercooked in the middle. Medium heat allows the bread to cook evenly, yielding French toast with a crisp, golden outside and a soft, fluffy inside.
