Baguette French toast

    25 min

    I love making French toast with a crusty baguette. The smaller rounds make for a pretty presentation and are also great for little ones. Serve with honey, maple syrup, jam or fresh fruit with a dusting of icing sugar.

    Makes: 8 slices French toast

    • 1 egg
    • 125ml full fat milk
    • 1 teaspoon plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 8 slices baguette, about 1 inch thick
    • 2 teaspoons olive or sunflower oil
    • 1 knob butter

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:10min soaking  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a large shallow dish (I used a pie dish), whisk together the egg, milk, flour, vanilla and salt. Add the baguette slices in a single layer. Immediately flip over. Allow to soak for about 10 minutes, turning once halfway through.
    2. Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the baguette slices. Cook till golden brown on both sides, flipping once, a total of 8 to 10 minutes.
    3. Serve immediately with your choice of accompaniments.


    For best results, use a denser baguette without too many airy holes. A sourdough, multigrain or seeded baguette works a treat, too.
