French toast... the breakfast of dreams. In fact, Vegan French toast could probably be eaten for any meal and it would be a meal of dreams. To me, the perfect fresh toast is slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The crispy exterior comes from frying the french toast in butter. In my opinion, French toast should also have a cinnamon flavour, which goes perfectly with all of the delicious toppings that you choose to go on top.
Traditional French toast is obviously made with eggs and for years, any vegan French toast recipe has just relied on milk to gain a similar texture. However, with the introduction of egg alternatives, we can now make a Vegan French toast which is just perfect, gaining that soft inside and crispy outside. I use a liquid egg white substitute within this recipe. You will be able to pick one up from most supermarkets now!
I topped mine with a chocolatey, hazelnutty Nutella-esque sauce and strawberries, with a sprinkle of icing sugar for good measure. You could also use my chocolate ganache recipe to drizzle on top of this recipe for an extra decadent experience! Finish with any fruit you like and you are on to a fabulous breakfast.
Enjoy this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack... whenever the craving hits! It is worth noting that this isn't a very long recipe so you could easily do this as a weekday treat.
To make your bread soaking easier, I would use a large baking tray to create your liquid mixture. This allows the soaking to be much easier! To watch me make this recipe, using a large baking tray, follow this link.

Vegan French Toast
- 8 slices Brioche bread
- 500 ml Soy milk
- 6 tablespoon Egg white substitute I used a liquid one from Oggs
- ¾ teaspoon Cinnamon powder
- 2 tablespoon Sugar white, granulated
- 2-3 tablespoon Butter for frying
- In a large bowl or baking tray, whisk together the milk, egg substitute, cinnamon and sugar until all combined. I use a ceramic baking tray so its easier to do the bread dipping!
- Cut your bread into even slices, to your desired thickness. Soak your bread in the milk mixture for a few seconds on each side.
- Place the soaked bread into the frying pan. Fry for a few minutes on either side. Then repeat this process until your bread has run out.
- Layer your French toast up with whatever you wish and devour!
