Maple French Toast Recipe for a Special Breakfast Treat

You are going to LOVE this Maple French Toast Recipe! We are very lucky to have a ton of maple trees on our property. Our neighbor sugars them for us for free in exchange for a portion of the syrup.  We always end up with at least eight jars of maple syrup each year and since we wouldn’t sugar them ourselves, it’s a great arrangement.  Since we also have ducks and chickens that keep us in eggs, French Toast is something we eat a lot of.  Adding maple syrup to the French toast makes it even better!  I found this recipe in the Dishing Up Maine cookbook and shared with permission. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

This easy breakfast recipe is really flexible depending on your preferences. If you’re gluten intolerant, you can make it with a good quality gluten-free bread. Just watch that it doesn’t get too wet or the bread may fall apart. You can make it with a non-dairy milk like almond milk for those that are lactose intolerant. You can also fry it in coconut oil if you’d rather skip the butter. Just experiment a bit until it works the way you want it to. Just please, whatever you do, use real maple syrup.

The best tip I can give you is to make sure that you cook it in a pan with a lot of butter or coconut oil so that it doesn’t stick. I’m a huge fan of my cast iron pans and always make sure there is enough oil or butter so they don’t stick and make a giant mess.

  • 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup, more for serving
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 slices good quality bread

Repeat with the remaining butter, bread, and egg mixture.
  3. Serve hot with butter and maple syrup
