I have loved Kneader’s French Toast for a very long time.
Kneader’s Bakery opened up in my town about 10 years ago and since then, I have not been able to get enough of the chunky cinnamon bread, dipped in amazing batter, cooked to perfection, and topped with whipped cream and the most delicious caramel syrup.
Trust me. It will change your life.
I don’t have the time or budget to go to Kneader’s for breakfast every day, especially because all of my boys, including my husband, are just as addicted to this wonderful breakfast as I am.
Kneader’s French Toast at Home
So I wanted to create a copycat version of Kneader’s French Toast that I could make at home.
I created my own version of Kneader’s Chunky Cinnamon Bread, which I think makes this recipe taste almost exactly like the original. You can find that recipe here.
As far as the batter, I have not been able to use a different French Toast batter since I first made this Amazingly Perfect French Toast.
I adapted that recipe just a little for my version of Kneader’s Chunky Cinnamon French Toast by swapping the white sugar for brown sugar and omitting the cinnamon.
To enjoy this French Toast to the fullest, I highly recommend that you don’t skip the caramel syrup. It really takes this dish to the next level.
When I make this breakfast, we usually have leftovers, even with 3 boys living at my house!
It’s easy to pop the extra pieces into the freezer and use them another day when we need a quick breakfast.
This French Toast is great served with a side of bacon cooked perfectly in the oven!
