Here's a foolproof way to get this crunchy, Double Dipped French Toast hot off the griddle and bursting with cinnamon flavor.
Servings: 4 people
Author: Calleigh
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • Griddle


  • 4 slices Texas Thick bread  (I used Texas bread here) but you can use Brioche or Challah

for Custard Mix:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp Heavy cream (or full cream milk)
  • pinch of salt

For the Coating:

  • 2 cups Cornflakes (crushed into a coarse meal)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sugar (skip this if you're using sugar-coated flakes)

For Garnish:

  • Powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Mixed berries (raspberries, blackberries, strawberries)


Prep the Custard Mixture:

  • In a shallow bowl or a pie plate, mix together eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, vanilla & a pinch of salt.

Prep the Coating:

  • Place cornflakes in a resealable ziplock and crush the flakes with rolling pin until coarse meals form. Transfer to a pie plate or a bowl and add the sugar & cinnamon.

Soaking the French Bread:

  • Cut bread into thick slices and place in the custard mixture. Soak well on both sides, allowing the egg mixture to absorb the bread.
  • After that, place the soaked bread in the cornflakes mixture bowl and coat well on both sides.

Prep the French Toast:

  • Heat the griddle or the skillet, lightly spray some oil before placing a pat of butter. Once it's sizzling, you can put the bread and allow to cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Once all the bread slices have been browned in the griddle or skillet, transfer them to a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake at 350F (or 150C) for about 5-6 minutes to cook any egg that didn't brown on sides and to crisp up the topping.

Serving the French Bread:

  • Remove the bread slices from cookie sheet. Cut in diagonal, dust with powdered sugar and arrange in a serving plate and garnish with fresh berries or fruits.
