French toast


French toast, or eggy bread, is a classic brunch option and an excellent solution for using up stale bread. In fact, slightly dry bread works best for this dish.

To prepare French toast, slices of bread are dipped in a mixture of milk and eggs before being pan-fried until golden brown. It’s commonly served with fresh fruit, maple syrup, and a dusting of powdered sugar.


French Toast

4 pcs. Eggs

2 dl Milk , preferably whole milk

2 tsp. Vanilla sugar

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tbsp. Sugar

pinch Fine salt

8 pcs. Sliced bread

Butter for frying


Make the egg mixture

Combine the eggs, milk, vanilla sugar, cinnamon, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Whisk thoroughly using a fork or whisk.

Dip the bread in the egg mixture

Dip the first 3-4 slices of bread in the egg mixture, depending on how many can fit on your pan. Make sure to cover both sides well and leave them in the egg mixture for a bit to soak up the egg mixture.

Dip the first 3-4 slices of bread in the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are well coated. Allow to soak for a moment to absorb the egg-mixture thoroughly.

Fry the french toast

Preheat a frying pan to 165 ºC, ideally using a large 28 cm pan to fry severeal pieces at a time.

Add a knob of butter to the pan and allow it to melt.

Place the egg-dipped bread slices onto the hot pan. Fry them for approximately 4 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown.

Repeat the process with the remaining bread slices. If needed, wipe the pan with a paper towel between batches to remove any browned butter. Add fresh butter to the pan before frying the remaining bread slices.


Serve your French toast with a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of maple syrup, fresh berries, or any toppings of your choice.
