How To Make Sunday Morning French Toast

Sunday morning. Whether you are a church goer or not, every family loves sunday mornings. It’s still commonly thought of as a day of rest. My family growing up always had one really good meal on sunday – for my parents it was lunch. For me – it’s been breakfast. Think about it – everyone does a “Sunday Roast” or “Sunday Brunch”.

That being said I have come up with a French Toast recipe that is both healthy, fresh and sweet, and perfect for Sunday mornings.


  1. Hawaiian Sweet Bread – Cut to whatever size you deem appropriate (I wouldn’t recommend anything more then 2 inches in width; You could substitute Cinnamon-Raisin bread but you need to be able to cut it yourself; I would not recommend substituting with anything other then that.)
  2. Milk (dairy or non-dairy; either is fine)
  3. Eggs or an Egg substitute (you will need 1 more egg then people you are serving)
  4. Cinnamon or (If you don’t mind a different flavor) Nutmeg
  5. Vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon (give or take)
  6. Whipped cream or cool whip (if you know how to make your own – go for it)
  7. Fresh berries – sliced (I recommend using bananas, blueberries, and strawberries – but I’m sure any berries would do; I have not used melons so I can’t tell you what that would taste like but I can’t imagine it would be great.)
  8. Fork
  9. Honey
  10. Butter or Oil for pan
  11. Skillet
  12. spatula (for flipping)
  13. Pie plate or shallow dish


  1. In the pie plate, add eggs first then add milk (the milk should just cover the eggs) add vanilla extract and mix carefully, top off with cinnamon/nutmeg sprinkled to cover the top of mix
  2. turn skillet – med heat-  with a bit of butter or oil in the pan
  3. cut bread
  4. when the pan has heated through dip one slice of bread into mixure – quickly flipping it over so both sides are covered – and place in pan
  5. wait about 2-5 min for first side to cook; flip bread over, once cooked -remove from heat and put on a plate
  6. repeat previous steps until mixture is all used or bread runs out.
  7. place 3 slices of toast on plate
  8. top with berries, whipped cream and drizzle honey to taste
  9. Eat and Enjoy

**Disclaimer** I know that using syrup is the “american” way of eating french toast but this recipe is meant to be lightly sweet and refreshing. I have found that adding honey or even a mixture of honey/syrup together is about perfect. Straight syrup is cloyingly sweet. Enjoy your sunday morning toast!
