The Best French Toast Recipe!

…simple joy by simpler living

Sweet, soft and fluffy! This french toast recipe is the utmost of deliciousness! Made from freshly milled homemade bread and dripping with real maple syrup, it is a delicious and nutritious way to fuel up for the day!

All my recipes follow three principles: simple, delicious, and nutritious. This recipe is no exception. To make it simple and easy when cooking from scratch, I often separate things into different days. For this recipe, I make the bread one day, then french toast a day or two later when I have time. 

I recently made this with my new Sourdough Bread Machine Recipe and it was better than ever! Be sure to try different breads for different tastes. Freshly milled homemade bread is the most delicious.

This recipe is also a big time-saver because it tastes great as leftovers. I don’t know about you, but my mornings are very busy so having a nutritious prepared breakfast that just needs heating is a huge help! This french toast tastes great the second or third day so I usually make extra just for that purpose.

I love cooking on my cast iron griddle for even cooking and some added iron in our diets. When cooking on medium, it cooks to a nice golden brown.

We usually put real maple syrup on it but many other toppings taste great too. Feel free to share your favorite topping!
