How to make French Toast – simple recipe

French toast, also known as eggy bread, Bombay toast, German toast, gypsy toast, poor knights (of Windsor), or Spanish toast, is a dish made of bread soaked in milk, then in beaten eggs and then fried, a variation from the traditional spanish dessert called Torrija.


Here is one simple recipe, how to prepare french toast.


  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • vanilla to taste
  • cinnamon to taste
  • nutmeg to taste
  • pinch of baking powder



Let the bread sit out overnight and dry out. Mix 3-4 eggs in a medium bowl, crack the eggs then beat with a whisk or large fork. Add 1 cup of milk. Beat well until eggs are frothy, about 15 seconds.

Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg to taste and a pinch of baking powder. Pour mix into shallow pan or pie plate. Dip bread into mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side.

Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter on griddle. Place bread onto the griddle and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 minutes per side. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit.
