Whether you're preparing a leisurely weekend breakfast or seeking to sweeten up your weekday mornings, this French Toast offers a delightful blend of flavors and textures that will make your breakfast table a place of joy and comfort.


For the French Toast:
  • 4 slices of thick bread (brioche or challah work well)

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons butter, for frying

For Serving:
  • Maple syrup

  • 1 banana, sliced

  • 1/2 cup blueberries


Step 1: Prepare the Egg Mixture
  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon until well combined.

Step 2: Soak the Bread
  1. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds on each side. Ensure the bread is fully coated but not soggy.

Step 3: Fry the French Toast
  1. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter.

  2. Once the butter is melted and foamy, add the soaked bread slices to the skillet. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and slightly crispy. Repeat with the remaining slices, adding more butter as needed.

Step 4: Serve
  1. Serve the French Toast warm, topped with a generous drizzle of maple syrup, sliced banana, and blueberries.

Chef's Notes:

  • Bread Choice: For the best results, use day-old bread as it soaks up the egg mixture well without falling apart.

  • Customization: Feel free to customize the toppings according to your preference. Strawberries, raspberries, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar can also enhance this dish beautifully.

  • Dairy-Free Option: Substitute the milk with your choice of almond, soy, or coconut milk to make this recipe dairy-free.

  • Serving Suggestion: For an extra indulgent breakfast, serve the French Toast with a side of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


This Sweet French Toast served with maple syrup, sliced banana, and blueberries is a true delight, combining the comfort of warm, custard-soaked bread with the fresh sweetness of fruit. It's a versatile dish that can be adapted to suit any taste, making it a perfect breakfast or brunch option to share with loved ones. Enjoy the process of creating this delicious meal and the pleasure of savoring each bite.
