How to make French Toast

French toast is a versatile and easy dish, which is also fun to make. Also known as 'eggy bread', you can pair this with anything you like. You can go sweet and traditional with syrup, whipped cream and berries, or opt for a savoury version with bacon and a fried egg. 

What's the difference between French toast and eggy bread?

In general, French Toast tends to be sweet and eggy bread is more savoury. With French toast, you might have cinnamon, syrup and berries, whereas eggy bread is more likely to be paired with bacon or a fried egg.

However, French toast can also be savoury. Often the difference between the two is just the name, with different regions calling it different things.

What's French Toast called in the UK?

French Toast is usually referred to as eggy bread in the UK. However, as mentioned, this can depend on whether it is made to be sweet or savoury, or even whatever you prefer to call it.

Why is my French Toast coming out soggy?

There are a few reasons your French toast may be turning out soggy. You may be leaving the bread to soak in the egg mixture for too long. As soon as the bread soaks up the mixture you should remove it. You may also be cooking the French toast on too low a heat. You should fry the toast at a medium temperature until the outside is golden brown.

  1. Step 1:

    In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs together with the milk. 

  2. Step 2:

    Coat both sides of the bread slices thoroughly with the egg mixture (we recommend dipping).

  3. Step 3:

    Heat a frying pan and add the butter. Once the butter has melted and started to fry, add your bread slice by slice frying for 1.5 minutes on each side until it turns a lovely golden brown colour.


  4. Step 4:

    Pile the slices onto a plate and cover with fruit (we've used bananas and blueberries) and maple syrup and serve.
