Buttermilk French Toast

Servings: 5
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk or half and half
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 (1-inch) slices day old french bread (I cut mine on a diagonal for extra fanciness =)


  1. 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. 
  2. 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.
