How to Make French Toast

Step-by-step instructions are also in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Step 1: Berries

Add the washed berries to a bowl and drizzle honey over the top. Let the berries sit and macerate a bit while making the French Toast. This helps soften and sweeten the fruit. There are times when I skip this step and serve the berries fresh and unsweetened. I like to taste a berry to see how sweet they are first.

Step 2: Make the French Toast Recipe

Whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, vanilla, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl. Dip one slice of bread into the egg mixture and turn to coat. Let excess drip off the slice and place it on a sheet pan that is either greased or lined with parchment. If using parchment, I would also lightly spray the parchment as well. Repeat with remaining slices.

Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the slices over using a spatula. Bake for another 10 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step 3: Make Lemon Mascarpone

This mascarpone is such a delicious flavor pairing with cinnamon French toast and fresh berries. While it might be tempting to skip this, my advice is to treat yourself and DO IT!

With the French toast is baking, whip the mascarpone until creamy, a couple of turns should do it. Then, drizzle in the honey, add lemon zest, and stir to combine.

How to Store Leftover French Toast

If you happen to have leftovers, let the baked French Toast slices come to room temperature (and before 2 hours have lapsed from baking), wrap or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Freezing is perfect for longer storage. Here are two ways to freeze French toast leftovers:

  1. Flash Freeze: Place cooled baked French toast in a single layer on a baking sheet, place it in the freezer, and flash freeze it for about 1 hour. Then, wrap individual slices in plastic wrap and store in a freezer container or baggie. Perfect for enjoying single servings later.
  2. Freeze in Layers: In a freezer-safe container or sheet of foil, add a single layer of cooled, baked French Toast. Separate the layers with a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper. Then, store in a freezer container or baggie.

To reheat frozen French toast, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight for best results if you want to reheat in a skillet or toaster.

To reheat multiple servings, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Space frozen French toast slices 1/2-inch apart. Bake for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, but watch it carefully. If using thawed French toast, the baking time will be less.
