I’m noticing a trend with my recipes lately. They are heavy on the breakfast like Sweet Cream Pancakes and Crispy Waffles!

I love breakfast because it is usually one of the easiest and yummiest meals to make!

It is also great because you can have breakfast any time of the day. Even for dinner!

We do that a lot at my house, which is why it is important to me to have a variety of recipes to choose from.

I also tend to create a lot of breakfast recipes because my husband makes breakfast for his crew at the fire station.

He is always asking me to come up with new and classic things he can make.

Perfect French Toast

That’s where this French Toast recipe comes in. It is pretty much the best French Toast EVER!

This recipe has never failed me and i make it all the time!

The flour in the batter really helps to make the outside a little crispy while the inside is soft and yummy, but not soggy.

This is our go-to recipe because I know my kids will eat it up! It also tastes like the delicious French Toast you would get at many restaurants like IHOP or Denny’s.

How to Freeze French Toast

When I make this recipe, I usually do a really large batch. I freeze the slices on a baking sheet and then put them in a ziplock bag when frozen.

When it’s time to eat, just pop a piece or two in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or use the toaster to heat it up.

What is French Toast Batter Made Of?

Eggs- For this French Toast batter, I like to use large eggs. The egg is what binds the batter to the bread.

Milk- Milk is what makes the French Toast batter nice and creamy. It also sweetens it a bit. The more milk you add, the creamier your French toast will be.

All-Purpose Flour- In this recipe, I used 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour to thicken up our French Toast batter. The more flour you use the thicker your French Toast will be.

Sugar Sugar sweetens our French Toast batter and enhances the flavor of the cinnamon. It also acts as a tenderizer, making sure that your bread won’t be too tough after cooking it.

Vanilla Extract- Vanilla extract is what gives our French toast its amazing smell and flavor.

Cinnamon- Cinnamon is what gives our French toast its delicious taste! It is also a really strong spice that will enhance the flavor of your batter.

Loaf of Texas Toast- I use Loaf of Texas Toast to make my French Toast because it has a thicker consistency than typical bread, so it can hold up to the batter.

Butter- Use butter to spread on the griddle to keep the French Toast from sticking.

What Kind of Bread is Best for French Toast?

Brioche Bread- Brioche Bread is what most restaurants use to make their French Toast. It’s especially good for French Toast because it’s so thick and fluffy, which makes each piece of bread absorb more of the batter!

Texas Toast- Texas toast is another great choice for French Toast because its thick consistency absorbs more of the batter than typical bread.

Challah- Challah is another great bread to use for French Toast!

Hawaiian Bread- Another good choice for French Toast is Hawaiian Bread, because it’s so thick and buttery!

How Long Should French Toast Soak?

For a really creamy French Toast, you should let it soak for at least thirty minutes! But, if you’re short on time, a couple of minutes per side should do the trick.

How to Tell When French Toast is Cooked

Check the color of your French Toast. When cooked, it will be golden brown and crispy on the outside! You can also test your French toast by sticking a fork into it and making sure that steam no longer comes out.

When will my French Toast be ready?

After cooking your French toast, you should let it sit for a minute so the batter can thicken on the inside of the bread . Then serve with syrup! Yummy!

Definitely the best recipe! Thank you. My son said it's better than any of the pancake houses. The batter is perfect and works great with the bread. Soaks up just the right amount.

We loved the French toast! I couldn’t find Texas toast so I used a French bread loaf and sliced it a bit thicker. My adult daughter, who is extremely picky, was over later in the day and I had a couple of leftover pieces in the fridge to eat the next day and she put them in the toaster and said it was the best ever! Thank you.
