How to Make French Toast Restaurant Style

by Huang Kitchen

French toast, also known as eggy bread or gypsy toast is a dish of bread soaked in beaten egg batter, then fried and baked. Day-old bread is preferred as the stale bread will soak up more egg mixture.


  • 6 Thick slices french bread, preferably day old
  • 2 Eggs
  • ⅔ Cups Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoons Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ⅛ Teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, for frying bread
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    To make french toast, first cut the multigrain french bread into 6 thick slices.

    Step 2

    Measure ingredients needed to cook the french toast.

    Step 3

    Place the 2 eggs in a big shallow bowl.

    Step 4

    Add the milk.

    Step 5

    Then add the ground cinnamon and salt.

    Step 6

    Next add the brown sugar.

    Step 7

    Followed by vanilla extract.

    Step 8

    Whisk everything together.

    Step 9

    Dip each slice of thick french bread into the egg mixture.

    Step 10

    Soak the bread on both sides. Make sure that the bread is completely soaked.

    Step 11

    Soak all the 6 slices of bread and drained.

    Step 12

    Place all the soaked slices of bread on a plate.

    Step 13

    Preheat oven to 200 degree C (400 degree F)

    Step 14

    Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.

    Step 15

    Working in batches, brown the bread very lightly until golden brown. Sauté for about 3 minutes, just to kind of seal the egg batter.

    Step 16

    Flip over and brown for another 3 minutes until it's beautiful and golden colour.

    Step 17

    Transfer the golden brown slices of french bread to a baking sheet.

    Step 18

    Then bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes to finish the cooking. The bread will puff slightly and will be crispy on the outside while the inside will be incredibly moist and soft.

    Step 19

    Keep the french toast warm in the oven over low temperature if not eaten right away.

    Step 20

    The baking cooks the custard inside the bread and gives it an unbelievable texture. The outside on the other hand is crispy and golden. This gives a truly amazing french toast experience.

    Step 21

    And you're done! Serve hot with butter.

    Step 22

    Or garnish with some blueberries. So Enjoy!
