Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast is a delicious breakfast recipe for French toast that is sprinkled with cinnamon sugar for a slightly crunchy and sweet treat!

One of my favorite “fancy-but-easy” weekday morning breakfasts for the kids is French toast. I know most people might not think of French toast as a weekday breakfast, but it’s really just whisking together some milk and eggs, dipping bread in it, and frying it in butter! More work than cereal, but I consider it pretty simple. I wanted to make French toast a little bit more special on a weekend recently, so I jazzed things up and made Cinnamon Sugar French Toast.

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast is basically my go-to French toast recipe (which I eyeball most days!), coated in cinnamon sugar. Yum-O!

What You’ll Need

  • Texas Toast Bread
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Granulated Sugar

While I typically use whole wheat bread when I make French toast during the week, I really went all out this time with Texas toast bread. You can really use any bread you like, but I think thick cut white bread is super delicious in this recipe! Even better – sliced brioche bread would be amazing.

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

To start, whisk together the milk/egg mixture. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk/cream, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate shallow bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.

Heat half of the butter in a large skillet or griddle over medium/medium-high heat. Dip the bread into the milk/egg mixture and then cook the French toast in the skillet or griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side. Immediately after the French toast is done cooking, dip it in the cinnamon sugar mixture and shake any excess off. Serve with maple syrup and berries, and enjoy!

How to Keep Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Warm

If you are making a double batch of this French toast, or need to keep it warm because you are making it in two batches, you can keep it warm in the oven. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. Place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet and place the cooked French toast onto the wire rack and place in the warm oven.
