Gluten Free French Toast Recipe

Ah, French Toast.  So sophisticated.  So scrumptious.  So simple!  You didn’t expect that last one, did you?  I didn’t expect French Toast to be as simple as it is, either!  But after many years of epicurean evolution, this treat has really become an art form.

Also known as eggy bread (mostly in England–I’ve got to respect my heritage), French Toast truly is the classic culinary creation.  It was first mentioned in the 4th Century Roman Cookbook, the Apicius (of which you can actually download a copy of the original here).  The first recipe was heavy on the milk and light on the eggs.  It was probably a bit soggy, as well.  I think a couple thousand years of tweaking the recipe has definitely improved it.  The modern version is light and fluffy, with a perfect crispy crust and just the right hint of cinnamon and sweet.  Our version is also quite allergy friendly–free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nuts!  But don’t let that fool you–it is still one of the best breakfast treats in history!

  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  • Cut each bun into thin slices, about 6-8 depending on your preference.
  • Crack the eggs in to a large bowl.
  • Holding the bowl at an angle, whip the eggs with a fork until fluffy.
  • Place the bun slices in the whipped eggs.
  • Soak for one minute.  Flip and soak the other side for one minute.
  • Place the soaked slices in the preheated pan.  Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Arrange the fried slices on a plate.
  • Cover with a generous helping of golden syrup.
  • Sprinkle with plenty of cinnamon and powdered sugar.
  • Garnish with your favorite fresh fruit.
  • Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

  1. Thanks for posting this! I used to love eating French Toast until I’ve recently developed celiac disease. It’s been difficult finding gluten free bread that I could use to make French Toast with. Do you know of any good recipes to make gluten free bread? This recipe seems like it would be delicious, so I would like to have a really good loaf of bread that I can eat to use for this recipe.

  2. Sounds very good, will have to give them a try. Thanks…
    Have a lovely day!
