This recipe for french toast with berries is the easy classic version of this breakfast favorite! Serve it up for breakfast and make someone’s day.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices sandwich bread. Does not have to be stale but can be!
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Maple syrup or fruit or powdered sugar for topping. Go ahead, have all three.


  1. Whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon until well blended.
  2. Lay bread out flat in a shallow dish with sides. Pour egg mixture over all. Let sit for about 2 minutes, flipping bread over several times, until totally saturated.
  3. Heat butter in frying pan over medium high heat until melted.
  4. Transfer soaked breads slices to frying pan. Depending on how saturated they are, you might have to do this with a spatula.
  5. Fry for about 2-3 minutes, checking the underside by lifting with spatula until golden. Flip over and fry other side until golden brown.
  6. Transfer to plate and top with syrup, powdered sugar, fruit, cinnamon sugar — whatever catches your fancy.
