Quick and Easy French Toast

French Toast has always been a great favourite in my home; especially with my brother who has a sweet tooth. As a breakfast item, the French Toast is easy to make in large numbers and requires no great preparation.

A bonus is that with the egg batter left over at the end, we can make a “sweet omelette.”

Serves: 2

Time: 30 minutes


  1. Eggs – 1
  2. Milk – 1/4 Cup
  3. Sugar – 4 tsp (or to taste)
  4. Vanilla Extract – A Couple of Drops
  5. Bread Slices – 4
  6. Butter – 1 tsp


  1. Dissolve the sugar in milk.
  2. Add the egg to the milk and whisk till it is well-incorporated.
  3. Add the vanilla essence and mix well.
  4. Dip two bread slices in the egg mix till they are covered.
  5. Wait for a minute and turn them over.
  6. Wait for another minute.
  7. Heat a flat pan and add 1/4 tsp butter.
  8. Wait till the butter melts and spread it evenly across the pan.
  9. Remove the bread slices from the egg mix and place them side-by-side on the pan.
  10. Over low-medium heat, cook till the side of bread touching the pan just starts to turn brown.
  11. Flip over and cook till the second side starts to brown. Add a bit of butter, if required.
  12. Repeat with the other two bread slices.
  13. Serve hot.


  • The batter contains sugar, so cook on low-medium heat only. If you cook on high heat, the sugar will cause bread to brown and burn but the insides will remain raw.
  • You could add some cinnamon powder instead of vanilla.
  • If you have any egg mix left, make a small sweet omelette out of it. The kids love it!
