  • 1 Spatula
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 non-stick frying pan


  • 5 eggs large
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • ½ cup half & half
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter for cooking
  • 12 slices sourdough bread


  • In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract and maple syrup.
  • Add the milk and half & half and whisk until combined.
  • Sprinkle in the cinammon and salt. Give the mixture one last whisk to ensure all ingredients are combined.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and melt some butter.
  • Dip a slice of bread in the custard mixture using tongs until fully immersed, let the excess drip off and place it into the heated pan. Continue with 2 more slices. Cook slices for about 2 minutes until golden, flip and cook for 2 minutes more.
  • Repeat with remaining sourdough bread slices. Serve with berries, whipped cream, pure maple syrup and powdered sugar and enjoy!


This recipe is quite simple and easy to follow there are just a few simple tips for the best results!
  • Don't soak the bread for too long. Just immerse the bread into the custard and remove it with tongs to allow the excess to drip off. If you skip this step your french toast will be soggy.
  • Cook the slices of bread for 2-3 minutes per side try not to overcook them.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. They can be reheated in a warm skillet, a toaster oven, or as a last resort the microwave.
  • This French toast is excellent served with pure maple syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar!
