This quick & easy French toast recipe makes for a sweet eggy breakfast. If you’re a fan of French toast but don’t have a huge amount of time to make it, then this recipe is for you.
You will find that French toast is called pain perdu in most French-speaking regions, this means lost bread. It is called this as you often use stale bread in the making of this dish. Soaking it in egg and frying it in butter is a way of bringing the bread back to the tasty and edible state.
Learning how to make French toast is surprisingly easy as the concept behind is dead simple. The process is typically finding a stale bread and soaking it in an egg mix. This egg mix usually varies from recipe to recipe, but the one I have written up here is my personal favorite. (It is also super easy to cook up).

Quick & Easy French Toast Recipe
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
- ¼ cup of milk
- 4 slices of bread
- In a bowl, beat the egg, vanilla, and cinnamon together.
- Once beaten, stir in the milk.
- Dip the bread in the egg mixture. If you slightly massage the bread, this will encourage it to absorb the egg faster.

- Serve & Enjoy
- If you need to prepare a large batch of French toast, then I recommended starting them a pan before moving them into an oven a medium to low temperature. This way you can cook lots and keep them warm without overcooking them.
- One thing to note, if you’re doing thick pieces of bread, then I would recommend starting, then in the frying pan and finish them off in the oven. To do this have an oven preheated to about 180°C (350°F) and once the bread is slightly golden brown on each side place into the oven and finish it off.
- This French toast recipe is very much like the easy pancake recipe and goes fantastic with fresh berries and cream. Another great combination is bacon and maple syrup, but it depends what appeals to your more.
