Honey Custard French Toast
I have never made French Toast with Honey Custard before and it was delicious! This recipe will feed 6 people or you could freeze any leftovers. I could eat this Honey Custard French Toast for any meal, not just breakfast.

Ingredients – Butter for browning too.
In a large bowl whisk the eggs.
Add the honey, milk, cinnamon
and salt to the eggs.
Whisk really well until the honey and
cinnamon are completely mixed in.
This will take a couple of minutes.
This is now the custard.
Melt about 1 Tbsp of butter in a
large frying pan over medium heat.
Place the bread into the custard.
Soak up the custard briefly, turning the
bread over to briefly soak the other side too.
Cook the bread until it is golden brown.
Turn over and brown the other side too.
Remove to a plate and keep warm.
Add another tablespoon of butter
with each addition of bread.
Place on a serving plate
and serve with honey.

This looks delicious! I’m going to try it for my kids this weekend. Thank you!
You’re welcome! My 4 year old grandson ate 2!
Thanks I gave the leftovers to my mother in law to enjoy!
I’ve done something similar using nutmeg, but less sweetener. I found that the outside got too brown before the inside was cooked through. Maybe I was using too hot a temperature, which was 350° on an electric frying pan.
I used a medium heat with a cast iron pan. They turned out perfect. Maybe it was the cast iron pan that made them so good?
I formerly used my 70-something year old cast iron pan for nearly everything; now love my Calphalon pans way more!
That sounds super cozy, Diane!
Cozy and gone…hahahaha
I am the BIGGEST french toast fan! I lOvE this one!!! 🙂
Me too Christy! As funny as it is, this was the first time I actually used French Bread! I will never use anything else again.
Yum! Fantastic recipe. Thank you 😊
You’re welcome Kimberly!
Very nourishing and easy to do 🙂 and honey is good at every season, specially during winter – amitiés 🙂
I agree! Thank you so much!
You’re trying to hurt me Diane…
I had to get the leftovers out of the house! I ate 4 pieces, my 4 year old grandson ate 2! I gave the rest to my mother in law.
Lol!! Dangerous stuff!
Not anymore! 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣
I’ll be at your house next time you make this. Just tell me when! 😉
Very delicious! thanks.
This looks super easy! That’s my type of recipe!
This is so simple and yet looks so delicious. Will definitely have to try it. Thanks for sharing.
Lovely share yum yum!
Better set an extra plate for me too. 🙂
now take a bow that was super delicious and made two people love it this morning.Having own hens made another batch to freeze but again we just had to sample again
Awesome!!!! Nothing like fresh eggs too!
Again, something delicious AND feasible. Have you ever tried to make this recipe with a different kind of bread, Diane. I can imagine it would be tasty even with whole wheat, or raisin bread.
No this was my first time making it but I bet it would be great with any bread!
Sounds absolutely delicious!
I make a pretty solid French toast with wheat bread (I mix a touch of vanilla extract into the custard base). The addition of honey sounds awesome.
Thank you Matt!

That’s it! I am coming the next time you make this!!

Oh now this looks good, going to try this in the Morning…Thank you for sharing 🙂
