French Toast was one of the first stove top things I learned to cook. Since it was harder to burn, I preferred making them over pancakes. To this day, I prefer making French Roast over pancake made from a complete mix. Yes, the ready to make mix only calls for water and a hot skillet, but the nooks and crannies take for ever to form! If you flip it to early, it gets crumbly on the sides or even worse the pancake turns into a deformed taco. But enough about my loathe for pancakes. Tuesday’s Mystery Post is about French Toast.
French Toast without sugar taste like scrambled eggs with cinnamon. It took me over twenty years to notice. Growing up, I helped cook. I learned how from family, friends, and cookbooks. I don’t remember who taught me how to make French Toast, but they did not add sugar to their yolk bath. Since the finish product was drenched in syrup, I didn’t think much of it.
Mosts days, My husband prefers home cooked meals. During the work week, I try to make meals that are quick and easy to eat. One day, I decided to make French Toast Sticks. I was looking for different recipes on how to do it. Since you loose the crust boarder with French Toast Sticks, I didn’t want to experiment with the cooking process without some help. During my search, I was suprised to see that the recipe called for 1/2 cup of sugar. Instead of questioning the recipe, I followed the directions and they came out great.
Curious, I decided to make a batch of French toast and ate them without syrup. Honestly, they tasted like cinnamon. I feel most can agree that cinnamon with out sugar is pretty bland. Needless to say, that was the last time I made French toast without sugar. I owe my thanks to All Recipes. When it comes to Google search, it’s on of the first digital recipes to pop up.
Now, I make an effort to find recipes by food bloggers. It turns out some bloggers prefer using powdered sugar over granulated sugar. I haven’t made French Toast Sticks with powdered sugar in the yolk bath, but I am intrigued. Have you?
I have been wanting to learn how to make a proper French toast for years ❤️ This gave me great inspiration – and now I also know we need sugar!

Glad to be of service ☺️. If you want thick French Toast, I recommend buying a Loaf of Texas Toast. Otherwise, any bread will do.
