French Toast Recipe

Melt some butter over a slice of this French Toast goodness and drizzle it with real maple syrup. Oh and fruit - top it off with some fruit. Enjoy!

This would be perfect for Easter morning, or any morning! The sweet Easter bread recipe I posted makes two large loaves and next-day Easter bread is perfect for making french toast.

You can also use any thick-sliced bread. Melt some butter over a slice of this goodness and drizzle it with real maple syrup. Oh and fruit – top it off with some fruit. Enjoy!

Ingredients for French Toast:

4 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp warm honey (if you are not using a sweet bread)
4 large, thick slices Easter bread or challah bread or 8 smaller slices of bread
Butter
Maple Syrup

      Yes that would work fine, but you might add a little sweetness to the mixture if desired since white bread doesn’t have the sweetness of the sweet breads. Reply

    hi Natasha
    My mom makes a similar recipe but we never baked them after sautéing. Does it make them more crispy on the outside? Thanks for the recipe…looks amazing!

      We made our own for this recipe; see the Portuguese Easter bread link above 😉 I think Challah is sold in nicer supermarkets and Some European stores. I don’t recall ever seeing it at Winco or Walmart. Reply

    Just had a thought! With the extra paski around why not make bread pudding? It’s already sweet AND has raisins already in it..I already started with some baguette I had lying around, wish I woulda used the paski though since I still have a loaf n it getting stale.. Reply
