Ingredients in French Toast
French toast is a great way to use up day-old bread. In fact, some bread makes better French toast than others. If you have some old cinnamon raisin bread, Challah, or perhaps even some Texas Toast, you are in business to make French Toast. Heck, you may even want to make it from this delicious French bread recipe.
Essentially old bread (old does not mean moldy, don’t eat moldy bread), is dipped into an egg batter and the bread is cooked with butter in a skillet or in a pan. This batter turns into a lovely concoction of eggy bread that you can serve with almost anything.
What to Serve with French Toast
You can serve French Toast with butter, syrup, powdered sugar, or even fruit. I have even had this done Russian style and it was served with smoked fish and white fish spreads. Making up a batch of French Toast is a great way to use up bread that is just past its prime, it is economical and best of all it is a very easy recipe to make.

Why is my French toast soggy
There can be two reasons that French toast is soggy. It could have soaked up too much of the egg batter, and it is undercooked, it may remain soggy, after cooking. You should not allow the bread to soak in the egg batter for too long. So to stop this, you need to place the bread into the egg batter press it down lightly and then flip it over and then place it into the skillet. You should take care to cook to cook the bread until it is firm.

Let’s just say I’m a 13 year old. I like making simple recipes and this channel has helped me learn many ways and this way is one of my favorite ones. Thank you, Stephanie Manley. 😀
You are welcome!
Awesome and easy 😉😁
Yummy! Simple but good recipe!
I’ve been looking for a go to method to make french toast for a while now. Then I stumbled on this post. It must have been fate!
Thanks for posting 🙂
I know this is technically for breakfast but it was great at 12 am when I was hungry and had almost nothing in the fridge except bread, eggs, and milk. Thanks for the recipe!! I’ll definitely be saving it for later.
So glad to help!
Could I possibly get the measurements please!
Sorry they are back.
thanks..great recipe and video..
Omg.. i made french toast and it was amazing! Thank u!
Now i need to know how to make Fried Chicken & pork chops
I like to use day old challah or brioche for mine. I soak the slices until the eggy milk goes right through to the core of them before sauteing them in unsalted butter infused with vanilla. Sometimes I bake them instead, the perfume that fills my kitchen is well worth the wait.
These two different types of bread make the best French toast ;). I don’t know which one I like more.
That’s my favorite way to make it, I like mine baked better than fried, I just drizzle the top of it with the infused butter before baking.
Do you have favorite additions you like to add to your French Toast?
I like to put banana slices that are lightly coated in sugar and cinnamon on to my French toast it gives it another good taste
