Easy French Toast

So Taylor and I are moving. More on that later…but as part of this pre-move-prep, I’ve been purging a TON of books. And (sadly) cookbooks. I have a cookbook addiction problem but also (ironically) a cookbook utilization problem. So it’s tiem to fix that.  Oddly enough though, in my purging I almost donated a book with the most wonderful (and simple) French toast recipe. Luckily I salvaged it just in time to whip this up for my mother-in-law and brother-in-law when they came over for brunch on Saturday. Yes, this is simple, but just that good. Per usually, I’ll offer a sweet + simple recipe as well as the option to get fancy if you’re into that kinda thing.

Crucial Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf of sourdough bread (or other bread that you prefer). You want it to be sturdy + pretty hearty so it holds up. Day old bread is good too
  • 3 eggs (pastured is preferred!)
  • 2 ½ cups of nut milk (I used homemade cashew and it turned out just dandy)
  • coconut oil or ghee for frying bread
  • maple syrup for serving

The fancy ingredients:

  • cinnamon
  • cardamom
  • chia seeds or hemp seeds
  • sliced fresh fruit (I used bananas and they were perfection)


  1. Cut bread into ½ inch thick slices
  2. Whisk eggs and milk together and pour into a large (but shallow if you have it) bowl
  3. Add enough ghee or coconut oil to coat the bottom of a medium sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat
  4. Dip bread in egg/milk mixture and let it soak it up on each side for about 30 seconds/side. (you can also cram as many slices as you’d like into the bowl). Try for super moist but not soggy.
  5. Fry bread until golden brown on each side
  6. Serve with maple syrup and extra fancy fixins!
