The Ultimate Crispy, Crunchy French Toast Recipe
easy french toast recipesSay goodbye to your regular french toast recipe of frying bread in eggs and milk. This is how you level up your french toast recipe - with a humble box of cornflakes! Yes, that's right. Just one simple step to coat your toast in cornflake crumbs and frying it in a generous amount of butter results in a delightfully crisped, crunchy outside and a warm filling within. The perfect thing about this is that you can fill your french toast with any filling you like - so peanut butter and jelly is a great combination, or peanut butter and banana, nutella and banana... the list goes on. Give this decadent stack a swirl of maple syrup and some powdered sugar, and you have yourself an Instagram-worthy breakfast. Is Tiktok your new recipe guide? We've been taking some inspiration too.

  4 slices of thick bread
  2 eggs
  ½ cup milk
  1 tsp vanilla essence
  ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  200 g plain cornflakes, slightly crushed but not powdered!



Mix milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla essence in a bowl.


Separately, make your sandwich and fill it with your chosen fillings.


Dunk the sandwich generously with the egg-milk mixture. Be sure to coat the sides.


Immediately dunk the sandwich in the cornflake-crumb mixture and ensure that the bread is nicely coated with the crumbs.


Heat up a large pan and drop in a generous amount of butter. When the butter sizzles, place the sandwiches in and fry them. Fry until golden brown and plate.
