French Vanilla French Toast

French Vanilla French Toast

This french vanilla french toast recipe is stupid easy to make.  I used to love waking up to the smell of french toast on a Sunday morning when I was a kid.  The fragrant aroma of egg soaked wheat bread cooking on the stove top as the football pre game shows begin was a sign it would be a good day.  As delicious as those memories are, my wife surprised me with a neat substitution for imitation vanilla and milk that I would have never thought of.  It is so easy and tasty, don’t be surprised if you find yourself coming back to this french toast recipe time and time again.  My wife loves to eat these with only butter because they are already perfectly sweet, but I can’t help drowning it in syrup.  This three ingredient french toast is now the standard  for new and exciting future memories.

Cinnabon bread (or another cinnamon swirled bread your grocer carries)
4 large eggs
1 cup Coffee Mate french vanilla creamer (I know, probably not the healthiest but I see people ruin their coffee with the stuff all day long)


Beat together in a wide based bowl (I just use a round casserole dish), the eggs and creamer.  Beat it as good as you can, the eggs will never be completely smooth so don’t stress, its ok if it looks like the picture above.

Heat your pan or griddle to just under medium heat.

Dunk your first slice of toast into the egg mixture.  I like to poke it a few times with a fork to ensure than the egg mixture gets in there real good.

Just before putting your first toast on the griddle, put a little butter on it to prevent sticking.  You won’t have to do this every time, just for the first one.  Let the slices cook about 2 minutes on each side or until they are golden in color (use above pictures for reference).  If they are cooking to fast or slow, adjust your stove setting accordingly.

Top with butter, powdered sugar, syrup or even fresh fruit!


I can just smell the football!
