French Toast is one of my favourite breakfast foods. I’ve made it a million times by now, to the point where I’ve come up with a recipe that has been no-fail for many years. This is my recipe, which I’m sure you’ll find to be super delicious and hopefully you’ll love it too!

What is French Toast?
French Toast is bread dipped into an egg mixture and then browned on either side. In my case, I use a number of additional ingredients along with the egg to enhance the flavour. I find that this recipe is one of the best ways to make it and our family loves them.
How to Make French Toast
To make this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- White Bread
- Vanilla Extract
- Cream (half and half)
- Blueberries (to top, if desired)
Time needed: 10 minutes.
Here’s how you make French toast in the best possible way with the most flavour you can.
- Gather your ingredients.
You will need vanilla extract, eggs, white bread, cinnamon, half and half cream and, in my case, a griddle.
- Add ingredients to a container.
Add vanilla, cinnamon and eggs in a container that is large enough to fit a slice of bread so you can dip and thoroughly cover each slice.
- Pour in the cream.
Add the cream to the ingredients and whisk until blended well.
- Dip each slice of bread.
Dip each slice of bread into the French toast egg mixture, being sure to cover completely.
- Add to griddle.
Add the coated slices of bread to the griddle or your frying pan and brown on each side, then remove.
- Dust with icing sugar and serve.
Serve with icing sugar, blueberries and syrup (if desired).
Changing up your French Toast
There are many ways to serve your French toast. I like to use icing sugar (confectioner’s sugar for some of you) and blueberries but you can modify as much as you like. Some people enjoy eating them plain as well.
Another item you can substitute our is the type of bread. While the most common bread of choice is white bread, some people prefer sourdough or wheat bread and of course, if this is your preference, I can promise you that it tastes great regardless of the type of bread.
