Try this Classic French Toast recipe.


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, half-and-half, or milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 slices thick bread
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Pure maple syrup, for serving (optional)


  1.  Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Whisk eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Place bread in a shallow baking dish large enough to hold bread slices in a single layer.
  4. Pour egg mixture over bread; soak 3 minutes. Turn slices over; soak until soaked through, about 3 minutes more.
  5. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet, and set aside.
  6. Heat 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  7. Fry half the bread slices until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  8. Transfer to wire rack; place in oven while cooking remaining bread.
  9. Wipe skillet, and repeat with remaining butter, oil, and bread.
  10. Keep in oven until ready to serve. Serve you classic French toast warm with pure maple syrup, if desired.

TIP: use any bread sourdough, brioche, but I like Texas Toast because of it’s thickness and it adds more favor.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
