How To Make French Toast

Ever wanted to make French Toast -  but unsure how to perfect it? Well, you're in luck!

French Toast is pretty easy to make, but to give it that deliciously sweet flavour can be a challenge.

Here, we have included a basic recipe for French Toast, and two extra special French Toast recipes from The Skinny Food Co - you're welcome.

1. Basic French Toast Recipe


  • 2 large eggs
  • 80ml whole milk
  • 40ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 thick slices brioche
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • icing sugar and fresh berries, to serve (optional)


  1. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Lay the brioche slices in a single layer in a shallow dish and pour the egg mixture over them. Allow to soak for 2-3 mins, then carefully turn over and soak for 2 mins more.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the vegetable oil and butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until foaming. Carefully lift 2 slices of the soaked brioche out of the dish and add to the frying pan. Fry for 3 mins on each side, until golden and crisp, then place on a wire rack over a baking tray in a warm oven while you repeat with the remaining slices.
  3. Serve dusted in icing sugar and scattered with fresh berries, if that's your kind of thing.

This delicious French toast creation is flavoured with fresh lemon juice and topped with a delicate lemon cream using our dairy free, virtually zero calories Original Creamer. Pair this with fresh blueberries & our incredible zero calorie, zero sugar Blueberry Syrup and you have the perfect healthier breakfast to set you up for the day!



1. Preheat your frying pan with the butter on a medium heat

2. In a bowl, beat together your egg, oat milk and the juice from 1/2 the lemon

3. Cut your bread into 4 triangles, dip into the egg mixture ensuring all sides are coated and have absorbed the mixture, before placing in your pan

4. Cook the French toast for 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown

5. Whilst this is cooking, mix together your yogurt, Original Creamer and the juice from the other 1/2 of the lemon

6. Once your French toast is golden, serve and spoon over your lemon yogurt before topping with the defrosted and fresh blueberries

7. Now drizzle over your delicious Blueberry Syrup

8. Finally grate a little zest from the lemon rind over the top, tuck in and enjoy!
