French Toast without Milk

French Toast without Milk

Background and History:

French Toast, known as “Pain Perdu” in France, has a rich history that dates back centuries. It was originally a clever way to use stale bread, as it involves soaking slices in a mixture of eggs and milk. However, making French Toast without milk is a versatile alternative for those with dietary restrictions or dairy allergies. This dish continues to be a breakfast favorite worldwide, and its simplicity and adaptability make it a cherished classic.


  • 4 slices of bread (stale or day-old bread works well)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup of a milk substitute (e.g., almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cooking oil or butter for frying
  • Maple syrup and fresh berries for serving

Serves: 2

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk substitute, sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a small amount of cooking oil or butter to prevent sticking.
  3. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are well-coated but not overly soaked.
  4. Place the dipped bread slices on the heated skillet and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  5. Continue to cook all slices, adding more oil or butter as needed.
  6. Serve the French Toast hot, topped with maple syrup and fresh berries or your choice of toppings.
