How to make french toast

Making French toast is a delicious and simple breakfast option. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you make it:


  • 4 slices of bread (thicker slices work best)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon (optional)
  • Butter or cooking spray for the pan
  • Toppings of your choice (maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit, etc.)


  1. Preheat the Pan:
    • Place a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Allow it to warm up while you prepare the egg mixture.
  2. Prepare the Egg Mixture:
    • In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract (if using), and ground cinnamon (if using). Ensure the mixture is well combined.
  3. Dip the Bread:
    • Place a slice of bread into the egg mixture. Allow it to soak for about 10-15 seconds on each side, ensuring it’s well-coated but not soggy.
  4. Cook the French Toast:
    • Add a small amount of butter to the heated skillet or spray it with cooking spray. Place the soaked bread onto the skillet.
  5. Cook Until Golden Brown:
    • Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Use a spatula to flip the bread.
  6. Repeat:
    • Repeat the dipping and cooking process for the remaining slices of bread.
  7. Serve:
    • Once all the slices are cooked, transfer them to a plate.
  8. Add Toppings:
    • Top your French toast with your favorite toppings. This could include maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  9. Serve Warm:
    • French toast is best enjoyed while it’s still warm and fresh from the griddle.

Additional Tips:

  • Experiment with different types of bread like brioche, challah, or whole wheat for varied flavors and textures.
  • If you’re making a large batch, you can keep the cooked slices warm in a preheated oven (around 200°F or 93°C) while you finish cooking the rest.
  • Feel free to get creative with your toppings. Nuts, chocolate chips, and flavored syrups can add extra flair.

Enjoy your homemade French toast! It’s a versatile dish that can be customized to suit your taste preferences.
