Cooking and Recipes: French toast

Benjamin Kraft, Recipe Blogger

I’m still a little shocked about how well last week’s lemon-Earl Grey bars turned out, so I decided to leave my sweets streak and make another breakfast dish: french toast. This easy recipe is even simpler than the quick buttermilk pancakes I made at the beginning of the quarter and just as delicious.

This recipe scales easily: Three eggs make four pieces of French toast. To make this recipe a meal I usually also make bacon and pour myself a glass of orange juice, but you can mix it up a bit with fruit, whipped cream, chocolate, Nutella, etc.

Serves 2 (4 pieces of French toast) | Hands-on time: 10 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes | Source: family tradition


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk (optional but recommended)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 slices bread (fresh or stale, fancy or store-bought)


  1. Set a frying pan on the stove at medium heat.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk thoroughly.
  3. Put a piece of bread in the mixture, flipping until coated.
  4. Place the piece of bread in the frying pan and cook each side until browned.
