Quick and Easy French Toast Recipe


Whitney loves baking, grilling, smoking and cooking just about anything anyway.

French Toast

French toast may also be referred to as griddle bread, German toast, Spanish toast, gypsy toast or eggy toast, but it's always going to be just plain old french toast - a tasty transformed bread recipe.

French toast is basically bread that's soaked in a milk and egg mixture and fried. It's often topped with confectioner's sugar, fruits and syrup. To mix up the flavor of French toast, you can soak it in rosewater or orange juice and top it with jams, jellies, honey or whipped cream.

You can use just about any type of bread, but a firm white bread is most often the bread of choice.

For families who love French toast, it's important to have an easy recipe for those mornings when you don't have a lot of time.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 6 slices firm-textured white bread
  • Maple syrup, to taste


If you don't use a firm- textured bread, like French bread, you'll need to cover the bread slices with paper towels and let them stand out on the counter for a few hours until they're dry.



  1. Crack the eggs into the mixing bowl and beat with the rotary beater or a for until the yolk and whites are mixed together. Add the milk and cinnamon and beat until well mixed.
  2. Pour the egg mix into the pie plate.
  3. Put the margarine or butter into the skillet. Place the skillet on the burner, and turn to medium heat, and let the margarine melt.
  4. Dip one slice of bread into the egg mix and using a fork flip the piece of bread over so that both sides of the slice are coated.
  5. Put the slice of bread in the skillet and repeat with another slice of bread.
  6. Cook the bread until both sides are lightly browned, which should take about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes on both sides.
  7. Serve the French toast with syrup. Some kids like added powdered sugar to the top. You may even want adding fruits, like strawberries.
