Doughnut Style French Toast

Doughnut French Toast 50

Doughnuts.  We all know I love doughnuts from this post.  I really love donuts/doughnuts whatever.

I love bread and pastries in general, carbaholic.  So it’s no surprise that I love french toast too 🙂

Wake up and get a whiff of this recipe!  Doughnut style french toast!

Eggy bread with cinnamon and vanilla and then drenched in cinnamon and sugar!

  A traditional breakfast food, but I say you can eat this any time of the day!

Beat two eggs with vanilla in a wide shallow dish.  Cut your bread in half and soak it in the eggy mixture.

Heat the butter and oil in a skillet and cook the eggy bread until golden on both sides. 

Mmm, can’t you smell it now!

So you are asking what makes this french toast light a doughnut?

Well after it’s done browning in the skillet you completely cover the pieces in cinnamon and sugar, just like a cinnamon and sugar coated doughnut!

Doughnut Style French Toast

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 slices of wheat bread, cut in half
  • 1/2 Tbsp. butter, plus a drop of oil, for cooking
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla in a wide shallow bowl or tupperware.

Soak the bread halves in the eggy mixture for 5 minutes a side.

Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan/skillet, cook the egg-soaked bread until golden and browned in parts on both sides.

Put the cinnamon and sugar into a tupperware (big enough for the bread slices) and mix.  Add the pieces of french toast one at a time and completely coat the cooked bread until coated like a sugared doughnut!

Serve warm.  May drizzle with syrup.

I changed the recipe up from this original one.

    I cannot remember the last time I had French Toast and may need to re-visit it this upcoming weekend. This looks delicious. I always chicken out on the weekends and make eggs instead. A sweet and savory breakfast next weekend is going to happen. 🙂

  15. simplyshaka says:

    I love donut anything so yeaaaaaaah, I would be all over this!

    I rarely have bread at home or it’s in the freezer and I never remember to let it sit out overnight to stale. Boo. If I do do sweet breakfasts, it’s usually oats. I love pancakes but don’t have a griddle so it’s a little difficult to make.

  16. DUH! Of course I would make this… I love sweet breakfasts, they’re my favorite!! You know this is right up my alley 🙂

  17. So you’re a genius, incidentally. taht looks amazing!
