Best French Toast Recipe

You will absolutely love this easy French Toast recipe. If you’ve always wondered how to make French Toast, we’re here to show you exactly how to make it with just a few easy ingredients and steps. All you need is bread, milk, eggs, powdered sugar, and there’s a secret ingredient that will make this the best French Toast recipe… vanilla extract. That’s right, by adding just a teaspoon of vanilla extract you’ll turn ordinary French Toast into extraordinary.

Of course, most French toast we’re used to comes on thickly sliced bread which you might not always have on hand. That’s just fine. We don’t need it. Ordinary sliced bread of any kind will work well. If you do want the thick slices, most grocery stores sell “Texas toast” bread or thick sliced bread in the bread section. But again, regular good old fashioned white bread will work just fine.

One more thing you’ll want to keep on hand is some powdered sugar. It’s very inexpensive and you can keep it in your cupboard forever so no excuse not to get it. Sprinkling some powdered on your freshly made French toast will literally top it off with all things good!


  • 4-6 slices white bread (thick if you've got it)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar


Step 1

In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Be sure to whisk well.

Step 2

Preheat a frying pan, skillet or griddle on medium heat. Use cooking spray or a pat of butter.

Step 3

Dunk bread slices in egg mixture. If using regularly sliced bread, don't soak the bread - just a quick dunk.

Step 4

Place bread on griddle and cook on both sides until golden brown. It should take about 2 minutes per side but be SURE to check.

Step 5

Place on plate and sprinkle on some of the powdered sugar.
