Step 3. Whisk


Add in milk, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon and beat the mixture with a fork or whisk.

Step 4. Dip Bread Slices


Coat a slice of the bread with the mixture on both sides. Dip the bread into the egg mixture until each side of the French toast is soaked and well-coated.

Step 5. Toast Each Slice of Bread


Place each slice onto the pan and cook the toast until golden on both sides. ( Approximately 45 seconds per side.)

Sprinkle sugar over the bread while it's in the pan before flipping it. This will create a crunchy layer of caramelized sugar–a French toast signature.

Step 6. Serve and Enjoy Your Homemade French Toast!

  1. For quite a while I read different areas of your site and enjoyed the Bread Making site of Fanny Farmer – Boston. I think I learned a little.

  2. Step number 1 should be the step AFTER all of the ingredients were prepared. If you put BUTTER on medium-high,walk away, and do the other steps, your butter will be burned. Never walk away from a pan that is on especially with something as touchy as butter in it.
