Grandma's French Toast

CreatorVezRoth Prep Time: 10 minutes, tops. Difficulty: Beginner
Serving: Roughly feeds two adults with 3 to 4 slices per person. Cooktime: Less than 5 minutes.  



  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • Splash of Vanilla Extract (Pure is best, Imitation works though)
  • Four to six slices of sliced white bread



Crack your eggs into a large bowl and beat with a fork or whisk until well whipped around.

Spoon in the sugar, then the cinnamon, and whisk again until the sugar and cinnamon is well combined with the eggs.

Splash in your vanilla and give it all a quick whisking. No need to over do it now.

Heat a non-stick skillet to medium, or a large electric griddle to it's equivalent to medium.

Apply a pat of butter to the cooking vessel of your choice and spread evenly. When the butter just begins to bubble slightly give the batter a quick whisk to make sure that it's fully combined then dip in your bread on one side, then flip and coat the other side and drop into the pan.

Leave it alone. No. Stop it. Don't poke at it. Don't touch it. Just let it cook for about 45 seconds to a minute.

Flip the slices you have in the pan over, they should be golden brown. NO! I saw you! Don't poke them either! Allow them to cook for the same 45 seconds to a minute.

Serve warm, apply a generous helping of butter to each slice, allow to melt then drench in maple syrup. Slice and enjoy.


Grandson's note:


Because I was interested in trying this, a few modifications can be made to this recipe. Instead of using white bread you can use Challah bread as well if you want something that's a bit more Restaurant style. It'll have the thicker bread but if you want it to soak through the slices let them stay in the batter for a few seconds on each side to soak into the bread.
