“Piece of Cake” French Toast

November 3, 2010
I know the name of this dish can be confusing so let me clear the air by saying that although sadly there is no cake involved, making this is really, really easy. Yes, I know I throw that word around here a lot but trust me, this is truly a piece of cake. Sometimes there’s nothing quite as comforting as toast and this just brings it to the next level without that much extra work. There are no special ingredients, everything you’d need you probably already have in your fridge and pantry.

Figurative cake and literal bread, win-win…win.


“Piece-of-Cake” French Toast
2 slices of *thick white bread
1 egg
½ tbsp sugar
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ cup milk
butter for pan-frying


*I find that the thicker the bread, the better because regular slices would soak up too much of the egg mixture and since you want bread with egg and not egg with bread, I recommend using thick ones.*


-whisk all the ingredients together


-transfer the mixture to a shallow pan (i used a brownie pan)
-soak each side of the bread for 5 seconds


-heat up the pan and melt the butter (about 2-3 tbsp)
-fry each side until you get lovely brown specks on the bread


Done! I served mine with maple syrup and dusted it with powdered sugar and ground cinnamon.

Can you say heavenly? Not only does this smell absolutely divine, it tastes so good. And when you think of how it took about 5 minutes to make, it tastes even better! Simplicity is delicious.
