French Toast with Cinnamon and Sugar

French toast is one of my favourite treats. 'French toast' is the 'posh' name for it; I usually call it "eggy-bread" which is far more parochial. It is one of those treats that I find myself craving every now and then - the great thing about it is simply how easy it is to make!


All you need is:

6 slices of white bread (may vary due to thickness of bread slices)
2 eggs
1/2 a cup of milk
Some oil to grease the pan

For the Topping:

Cinnamon and Sugar     {my personal favourite!}
... or whatever you fancy (syrup, jam, honey...)

  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the milk
  • Beat the eggs and milk together
  • I normally cut each of the slices into quarters  - it just makes it easier to fit in the pan. 
  • (Either squares or triangles - personally I think that things taste better when they are triangular. Unfortunately S. cut the bread this time so we have square eggy-bread pieces!)
  • Coat a frying pan with a thin layer of oil and heat on the hob
  • Dunk the pieces of bread in the egg and milk mixture so they are coated on both sides
  • Make sure the pan is hot
  • Drop the now coated bread into the hot pan
  • Turn the bread over to make sure that the egg is cooked on both sides
  • When it is done remove from pan
  • Sprinkle plenty of cinnamon and sugar over it (or whatever you feel like having on it...)
  • Enjoy!
