- 8 slices Bread (Brioche, Challah, or Sourdough)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 0.25 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 0.25 tbsp Cinnamon
- Butter for cooking
- Syrup or other toppings optional
Preheat your oven to 200°F.
Toast the bread slices in a large skillet over medium heat with butter until golden brown on both sides.
Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a bowl.
Place the bread slices in the bowl with the custard and let them soak for a few minutes, flipping them once so that both sides are evenly coated.
Cook the French toast in batches by adding a few slices of bread to the skillet at a time. Cook until golden-brown on both sides and cooked through. Then, transfer to a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.
Serve with butter, syrup, or your favorite toppings.
Try serving your French toast with some of these delicious toppings:
- Fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, or bananas

French toast is best served fresh, but leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or a skillet on the stove before serving.
French toast can also be frozen for up to 2 months. Place the cooked toast on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Then, transfer it to a freezer-safe bag or container. When you're ready to eat, thaw the toast overnight in the fridge and then reheat it in the microwave or a skillet on the stove.
