Have you ever woken up on Sunday morning craving French Toast, but thought it’s impossible to make without eggs? Make this Egg Free French Toast!

Eggless French Toast A

I use to feel the same way, remembering the sweet ‘eggy’ bread, moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. Ever since I stopped eating eggs this was one dish I craved but always dismissed as impossible to have again because well, let’s face it, aside from bread, egg is the main ingredient.

One morning as I was making some eggless pancakes and waffles for breakfast, I thought to myself, “Why not make some Eggless French Toast?”

I found the simple combination of milk as the base, cornstarch as the thickening agent, and vanilla extract as a sweetener made the perfect mixture for soaking the bread in. It was perfect in taste and texture, crispy on the outside, moist on the inside!

Eggless French Toast Recipe
Serves: 2
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or other extract)
  • 2 slices thick white bread (see notes below)
  • 4 teaspoon butter, salted
  • 2 strawberries, sliced (or any other preferred fruit)
  • maple syrup
  • powdered sugar
  1. Combine the milk, corn starch, and vanilla in a large shallow sauce pan and whisk until everything is combined and the corn starch is dissolved.
  2. Pre-heat a nonstick pan on medium heat.
  3. Place one slice of bread face down in the milk mixture. After a few seconds, flip the bread over so that the other side soaks in the milk mixture for a few seconds.
  4. Quickly add 1 teaspoon of salted butter to the heated pan (it should start to fry).
  5. Immediately place the soaked bread on the buttered pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown (be sure to not move the bread while it is cooking).
  6. Carefully pick the bread up with a wide spatula, add another 1 teaspoon butter to the pan (it should instantly fry), and flip the bread to brown the other side. Repeat with the other slice of bread.
  7. Top with some maple syrup, sliced strawberries, and powdered sugar. Serve hot and enjoy!


Try to avoid generic white sandwich bread. The bread needs to be able to hold the liquid mixture and therefore cannot be too soft or thinly sliced (otherwise it may not hold up while cooking). For best results, use white bread, but this recipe also tastes great with whole wheat bread.

    Yu-uum! My husband is allergic to eggs and I’m always looking for ways to cook foods he can’t normally have. I added apple pie spice, used almond milk and some cranberry cinnamon bread I baked a few days ago. Unbelievably tasty! Thanks!

    I am a mom of 5. All 4 of my girls have been living gluten free since 2004, jealous their little brother could eat anything…until last October. We all hated the limitations of gluten free living but celiac disease is not something to ignore. In October my son was diagnosed as egg, dairy, wheat allergy. My girls are now grateful gluten is their ONLY issue! Now I hunt for food for HIM…and your french toast recipe (with rice milk and gemf bread and topped with strawberry jam)) was a godsend this a.m.!! No more being left out!
    Thanks for sharing!

      So glad you enjoyed this recipe! I’ve never made this recipe with GF myself, but I’m going to have to make it for my brother who has Celiac as well! Let me know if you’re in the hunt for any other GF products or recipes and I can try to assist. My brother has had Celiac for more than 10 yrs. now and I bake/cook for him all the time!

    Have you tried this as a dairy and egg free recipe? Coconut/almond/soy milk instead of cow’s milk and oil in the pan instead of butter?
