Grans French Toast

This is my mother's recipe with a little twist from me. I watched her make this French Toast without measuring any ingredients. I do the same but will give you some measurements.

Grans French Toast


  • 8 slices of White bread, (Pepperidge Farms Italian Seedless White Bread or a loaf of French Bread from the deli not pre sliced - you want thick slices)

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk (low fat, 2%, or whole, whatever you have)

  • 1 Tbsp sugar

  • 1 tsp almond extract

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • Cinnamon-Sugar Mix. (see below)


  1. Preheat your griddle to 350°F.

  2. Cut the bread slices in half or if using French Bread from the deli use whole slices.

  3. With a fork, mix the eggs, milk, sugar and extracts together in a 3 quart bowl.

  4. When the griddle is ready, melt butter on the surface.

  5. Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture, one slice at a time making sure it is soaked through.

  6. Place it on the hot griddle.

  7. Continue with the remaining slices.

  8. Sprinkle the top of the cooking slices with the Cinnamon-Sugar mixture.

  9. Flip the slices when the bottom looks nicely browned. Sprinkle this side with Cinnamon-Sugar.


Cinnamon-Sugar Mix

Combine 1 part Cinnamon with 3 parts Sugar. For example: 1/4 cup of cinnamon to 3/4 cup of sugar.

I have a shaker just for my Cinnamon-Sugar mixture. This way I always have it ready to go for use in many of my recipes - such as Cinnamon-Sugar Croutons.
