Recipe for Stuffed French Toast :
I’ve been making homemade french toast since I was about 15, so I believe I am able to improve it tenfolds by now. This tender french toast recipe will melt in your mouth. Gets even irresistible when slathered with butter and drenched with maple syrup!
This is a go-to weekend breakfast at my home . Family members specially kids wake up to the smell of vanilla French Toast flavor in the air.
Kids favorite Breakfast:
French Toasts are one of the kids’ favorites and easy to eat breakfast. I usually prefer to cut the French toast into Sticks for my kids as they become easy to eat, no-fork-required and perfectly dunk-able. The sticks of soft, buttery, perfect vanilla bliss; when dipped in thick cream, simply taste like a heaven.
Whenever I make simple French toast for my toddler, my ratio is 1 egg and 1 slice of bread. I make sure that the bread soaks the whole egg as egg is an important source of protein and very healthy for growing kids.
French toast is a great way to get your kids to eat eggs without them knowing.

Different kinds of French Toast:
Breakfast is better with French toast! If you love French toast as much I do try this Caramel Apple French Toast Casserole, Creme brulee French Toast or Almond Crusted French Toast with Roasted Strawberry Syrup.
Best Bread for French Toast:
There are variety of options for the type of bread you would like to choose for your French Toast.
I normally make French Toast from white Bread slices but if you want to go towards the healthier version or want to try something different following breads can be used;
- French bread
- Brown bread
- White bread
- Whole grain bread
- Cinnamon raisins bread
Tweak the Sweetness of your French Toast:
For the perfect sweetness of your French Toast you can use below options in place of white sugar:
- Maple syrup
- Brown sugar
- Dark brown sugar
- Condensed milk
My secret Ingredient : ‘Condensed Milk’
The use of condensed milk by eliminating the sugar or honey , helps to make the liquid more of a “batter” which will yield extra fluffy and delicious french toast.
Condensed milk is the secret ingredient!But I use this ingredient only on some special days or on cheat days or whenever we crave an unhealthy version of French Toast.
Milk is also an important ingredient for rich and creamy flavor. Milk with a higher fat content will make the batter creamier. Whole milk works great and you can even add a little splash of cream if you want.
