Baked Christmasy French Toast


Recipe of baked French toastIn India we do not usually make French toasts for breakfast. The ones we do are the savory ones with egg usually. This classical ‘Baked’ French toast recipe will surely win your hearts and will tempt you to try this for the lazy Sunday breakfasts! The recipe can also be made by pan frying the bread slices dipped in French toast batter instead of baking, but baking just makes them melt in your mouth and you must try both varieties infact of this awesome American favorite breakfast dish!

    1. Hi. Sorry for a late reply, was away for a wedding :)
      and no we can't make this without eggs, as the eggs are needed to make it all homogeneous and bind the bread together.

    2. There's a way to create an egg substitute with soy milk and flax seeds, but I've never used it. For cake recipes, you can replace 1 egg with -
      1 ½ tablespoon water
      1 ½ tablespoon oil
      1 teaspoon baking powder
