Easy Cinnamon French Toast

I make French toast pretty often, so it’s surprising that I haven’t shared my simple and easy French Toast recipe on the blog yet. So, today I’m sharing my recipe for Easy Cinnamon French Toast.

French toast has always been my favorite of the breakfast items you eat with syrup. Yes, I love waffles too, but French toast just takes the cake for me. I love it because it’s simple and easy to make, you can whip up 2 slices real quick no problem. So, if Delaney doesn’t want French toast and I do, I can just make it for myself very easily. Versus waffles or pancake recipes as they make a lot for one batch. I use just 5 simple organic ingredients to make my delicious Easy Cinnamon French Toast. Get the recipe below.

Tips for Making the Best French Toast

  • Use bread that you like. If you prefer white bread, use it. If you prefer wheat, use it. The flavor of the bread you choose will come through in the French toast, so it should be one that you like. For this specific recipe I chose white bread because this is a simple and classic French toast recipe.
  • Do use whole milk! This is for fat and flavor so using whole milk is important.
  • Make sure to soak the bread for a few minutes. You shouldn’t see any dry spots on the bread when it goes into the skillet. Soaking it until it is completely coated is important as that gives the flavor to the French toast and also makes it turn golden brown.
  • Use a medium heat so you get a golden brown color, as that’s where the flavor will shine through.
  • Do buy pure organic maple syrup. This is one of the items I really highly recommend spending a little more and buying the good stuff!
  • Eat your French toast immediately after cooking it. This is not a recipe to save and it’s best when eaten immediately.

Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
