eggless french toast recipe

eggless french toast recipe with step by step photos – quick and easy recipe for a sweet french toast made without eggs.

on some days when i have a bread loaf in the fridge, i make these french toasts. they are super quick and easy to make.

while growing up, this was one of those breakfasts that was made at home, at least twice a week. we used to make these with eggs then. later i started making them just with milk and sugar. i have been making these eggless french toasts for quite some time now.

in the recipe, custard powder is added as a substitute for eggs and it works very well. there is a crisp texture on the toasts and the insides are soft. like mentioned before, i have made these with just milk and sugar too, but then the toasts do not get that crisp and tend to be more on the softer side. nevertheless these too also taste good.

french toasts always have to served hot or warm. don’t serve them at room temperature, as then they no longer have the crisp texture from outside. you can serve them with milk, tea or coffee. you can even drizzle some maple syrup on top. if drizzling honey, then drizzle it once the toasts have become warm. you can also top them with berries or fruits.

for making these french toasts, use any good quality bread – whole wheat, brown, oatmeal, multi grain or white bread. even sandwich bread works well. homemade breads are best. if you are using a loaf, then make slightly thick slices. this recipe can be doubled and tripled. depending on the size of the bread slices, you can make 4 to 6 slices of french toasts.

    Hi
    I have a doubt instead of using custard powder and sugar may I use besan(chick pea flour) and make it more spicy.

  2. Hi Dassana! I made this for breakfast today. Before I could take a picture of these beauties, mom and dad ate them up. So I decided to take a picture of the two slices left for me, but even I could not wait since they were so delicious! I sprinkled cinnamon powder on them and that enhanced the flavour so much. Thanks for this recipe. I love your blog!

  3. Hi Dassana,
    I am always on the lookout for recipes to feed my child (nearly one year old). He is not a fussy eater but needs a lot of variety. Made this one a few days back. He was thrilled and gobbled up 2 slices in a jiffy. Thanks!

    1. custard powder that we get in the market is usually made without eggs and has corn starch added to it. the ingredient list will inform you about what is added and these packs have the green vegetarian symbol. there are some companies which do add eggs and they do mention it on the pack and these ones have the red symbol.

  4. Hai,Amit,ilke your recipes yery much because they are purely veg,me n my son enjoy cooking together with yor cake recipes

  5. my little son loved it…first it became soggy and then I made the batter thick…then also it was not perfect crispy but we loved it…and I like your other receipes also.

    1. sogginess could depend on the type of bread. the bread has to be in slightly large slices and hold up the mixture. if the bread becomes soggy and absorbs too much of the custard mixture, then the toasts will not crisp. generally for making these toasts, its better to use a loaf of bread. since the sliced bread we get in the markets is usually have thinner slices. but i do agree the taste will be good.

  6. The recipe looks yummy. Di, i am having sweet potatoes with me, how can i roast it to make it yummy.

    1. thanks harsimrat. i usually roast sweet potatoes, first by cooking them in cooker or steamer. peel and then slice. then heat oil and add the slices. once they start getting golden, add the following spices – red chili powder, cumin powder, dhania powder, amchur or anardana powder and kala namak. mix very well and roast for a couple of minutes. lastly sprinkle chaat masala and chopped coriander leaves. you can follow this potato roast recipe on the below link and use the spices mentioned above. skip all the spices from the potato roast recipe. change the proportions of oil and spices as to the quantity of sweet potatoes you have. you can also roast in the oven.

  7. Hi Dassana, I love all your recipes and the way you post it. I am interested to do some cakes and muffins but the sad part is I don’t have oven. Please post how to make cakes and muffins without oven.

    1. thanks nandhini. you will need an oven for making cakes and muffins. i would say you can buy a small OTG and its not expensive as microwave ovens are. also you can make baked goods in a pressure cooker, but then you have to use a large cooker like 5 to 6 litres and use it only for baking. don’t pressure cook any food in it.

  8. Hello ma’m..it looked so yummy that i had tried today for evening tea time.And it turned out to be really delicious.Thankyou for simple yet new versions of the dishes.

  9. I make it in a diff way -add mashed banana to this mix and cut down the sugar – the texture is fab too

  10. You’re simply outstanding! I’d honestly never thought that there could ever be a thing like “eggless French toast”; for I used to love them like crazy but over a period of time I became hardcore veg so this was out of the question for me. I’m definitely going to try this today. Looks amazingly addictive. Kudos to you.
    Also I had a few queries which I for some reason I couldn’t post it as the comment box was unavailable.
    First I made the mix veg pasta in white sauce, although the taste was nice but while cooking when I added the milk, the sauce became a little yellowish. Wonder why?
    2nd about the apple cake, the toothpick came out clean. It’s still warm when I tried to unmould it. But as soon as I did, it just crumbled. Please advise.

    1. thanks garima. i hope by now you must have tried the eggless french toasts and i hope you liked them. the yellow color in the sauce could be due to yellow butter. sometimes its also due to the vegetables. sorry to know about the cake. too much mixing can make the cake crumbly. moreover since its an apple cake, its better to allow it to cool completely and then unmold.

  11. Dassana actually my question is about Masala Dosa. I followed your dosa recipe step by step but some how my dosa turns out dry when cooked, what could I be doing wrong? I had to ask my question here as I could not find any where in the dosa recipe where I could ask it.
    Thanks.
