French toast are one of the most popular breakfast around the world. While it is a simple recipe of bread slices dipped in egg mixture and toasted on a non-stick pan, they surely are one of the most loved breakfasts across the globe. One reason might be that they are made of what many people love eating for breakfast, eggs and bread, but are easier to make, quicker to cook and give a new taste to your taste buds. So basically, French toast is a twist to the regular bread-omelette breakfast, but I want more twist in my life, so here are a few French toast recipes that taste nothing like the French toasts you have been eating.

  1. Baked French Toast


1/2 cup melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 loaf of bread

4 eggs

1 1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Powdered sugar for sprinkling


Melt butter in bowl in a double boiler and add brown sugar to it. Stir until mixed well.

Pour the butter and sugar mixture into bottom of a pan and spread around.

Beat eggs, milk, & vanilla extract

Lay single layer of bread slices in the pan.

Spoon half of the egg mixture on bread layer.

Add the second layer of the bread slices.

Pour the remaining egg mixture on top of the second bread layer.

Cover and chill in the fridge overnight.

Bake at 180 degrees Centigrade in a preheated oven, after covering it with an aluminium foil, for 30 minutes. Remove the aluminium foil carefully after 30 minutes and bake for another 15 minutes.

Take it out of the oven and let it cool for sometime 

Sprinkle the powdered sugar on the top.

Serve with warm maple syrup or honey.

  1. Cinnamon Sugar French Toast


3 large eggs

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 tablespoon cinnamon powder

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

butter, for cooking

4 slices thick slices of bread

maple syrup or honey for serving, or your favorite topping


Place a non-stick pan over medium heat for a minute or two before you start cooking.

In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugars, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and whisk until combined.

Butter the pan.

Dip 1 slice of bread into the coating mixture for about 5 to 10 seconds, flipping over once, and making sure it is well-coated before placing it on the pan; don't dip the bread slice for long else it will soften and fall apart. Repeat with all slices of bread.

Cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden browned in color, flipping and rotating the sticks so all sides are cooked and browned.

Add more butter to the pan as necessary and wipe it with paper towel as and when necessary to remove black bits.

Serve immediately with maple syrup, honey or your favorite topping.

French toast sticks are best warm and fresh.

  1. Fruity French Toast Roll Ups


8 slices white sandwich bread

peanut butter, mixed fruit jam, cream cheese, or chocolate hazelnut spread

2 eggs

3 tablespoons milk

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon

Freshly cut strawberries or cranberries

butter, for greasing the pan

maple syrup, or honey for serving



Trim the crust from the bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.

Place about a teaspoon or 2 of your chosen filling an inch from one end of the bread spread out in a strip. Roll the bread up and repeat to fill and roll up all the bread slices.

In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.

In a separate bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon.

In a skillet set over medium heat melt a tablespoon of butter.

Add the rolls to the egg turning to coat on all sides then place them in the pan seam side down.

Cook in batches until golden brown, turning them to cook and brown on all sides. Add butter to the pan as needed.

Add the hot rolls from the pan to the cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered in sugar.

Serve with maple syrup or honey for dunking.

Instead of making the same old French toasts everytime, enjoy these amazing French toasts with family and friends and surprise them.
