One day I was sitting there eating one of my favorite foods, buttermilk pancakes, and I thought why not buttermilk french toast? So, I created this recipe and I’ve used it every time I’ve made french toast since. If there’s one thing I know how to make it’s breakfast =). I love french toast! We eat it probably once a week in my home.

It is so good we often eat it for dinner. The buttermilk just gives it that extra hit of flavor that you don’t find in your average french toast. I’ve tried many french toast recipes and this one is by far my favorite! I’ve thrown in a few “secret” ingredients that I’d call french toast enhancers.

I think they actually make a big difference. I never have soggy or dry in the middle french toast, and it doesn’t sink after its cooked. It holds its light fluffy texture. Give this recipe a try, and throw in those few “secret” ingredients. This is likely to become your go to french toast recipe for life =).

  • Preheat nonstick griddle over medium heat. Combine all ingredients (except the bread of course) in a blender. Blend on low speed for 10 seconds. Pour mixture into a shallow bowl. Butter preheated griddle and dip bread into mixture (giving it a few seconds to soak up mixture) and cover both side. 
  • Place on griddle and cook until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes) then lift french toast with a spatula, butter griddle again and flip french toast. Cook opposite side until golden. Serve immediately. Serve with maple syrup, berry syrup, powdered sugar or your favorite jam.
