for the toast

  • 5 slices Whole wheat bread slices
  • 2 tablespoons Butter  or as needed for toasting the bread slices


to make the batter

  • In a bowl, beat the eggs well and then whisk together the beaten eggs and sugar first.
  • Now whisk together the beaten eggs - sugar mixture with milk and whisk until everything is well combined. Add the vanilla extract and cinnamon powder, whisk again until all ingredients are blended nicely. This is how you can make the perfect batter for basic french toast recipe.
  • As I already mentioned above, one thing I always recommend while beating eggs for preparing french toast is to use a whisker to whisk the eggs so nicely to make the perfect batter for french toast.

to make the toast

  • Grease the iron griddle or pan generously with butter.
  • Dip the brown bread slice in the egg milk mixture and toast it in the greased hot pan.
  • It will take about 1 to 2 minutes for the bottom of the bread slice to be cooked and toasted in melted butter.
  • Flip the bread slice so that the other side also gets cooked, it takes almost 1 minute. Add more butter if needed.
  • The rule is that both the sides of the bread has to browned well, so you know it is really well cooked and has become crispy on outside! Enjoy the warm whole wheat french toast with a dollop of pure organic butter, maple syrup or sprinkled sugar or sliced fresh fruits or jam or anything of your choice!
