Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 15 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 cup butter, divided
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
  2. 2 Melt about 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip slices of bread one at a time into the egg, quickly coating each side but not fully saturating the bread.
  3. 3 Fry a few slices at a time in the buttered skillet until golden brown on each side. Add more butter to the skillet and continue with remaining slices. Melt remaining butter in the microwave at 15 second intervals. Place finished toast onto plates, drizzle with melted butter, and dust with confectioners' sugar.

  1. I added a good amount of vanilla extract to the egg wash. That was the only change I made. Both of my kids said this was the best french toast they've ever had. They loved the confectioners sugar on top. HIGHLY suggest you make this in your cast iron skillet--it gets this wonderful crust that - Read more ...
  2. This French toast is wonderful. And a great special occasion treat.
  3. Seriously, people, those of you who appoint yourselves as the "food police" STOP rating and commenting on recipes that you haven't tried and don't plan to. NO ONE CARES if you think there's too much fat or sugar or whatever in a recipe, we are free to eat what we want and so are you. - Read more ...
  4. Well I made this today for my daughter's birthday breakfast. I made a few changes: I used day old Italian Bread 1 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ground cloves 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg 1/2 tsp. ginger. I also have never made French toast without milk so I added some as well. I didn't use more - Read more ...
  5. These were great! I usually use Cinnamon while making French Toast but never thought of using Nutmeg Cloves and Ginger. I would have to say I cut way down on the Cloves as it seemed to over power the flavors!
  6. I don't believe I have ever given one star before. I could not even attempt to eat this. The flavors were extremely overpowering.
  7. Excellent. I added a little honey to the butter I drizzled over them and they were wonderful! I will use only half the cloves next time because I think 1 tsp overpowered the other spices but other than that this is a keeper!
  8. These are very good although I think they were a little spicy for my 2 year old. I may cut the spices in half next time. I did add a little milk. This made 8 pieces of toast for me not 15! Perfect amount for our family.
  9. This was delish! Best french toast i've ever had. Thanks Uncle Jesse!
