This is my go to recipe for French Toast from the Joy of Cooking. I like this recipe because it has a more eggy flavor. We always just make the basic recipe using a good dense white bread and serve with real maple syrup. I've included the full set of suggestions for completeness.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare pan or griddle for cooking.
  2. Beat eggs. Add milk, salt, and flavoring.
  3. The bread may be cut in rounds with a doughnut cutter.
  4. Dip bread into the mixture and place on griddle. Brown each side of the bread.
  5. Serve hot sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Garnish with jelly or serve with pie cherries, sweetened, slightly thickened with cornstarch, and flavored with lemon; with applesauce flavored with cinnamon and cloves; or with maple syrup.
