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.

  • 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
panna cooking


  1. Whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup and cinnamon in a shallow dish.
  2. Melt 1 1/2 tbsp of the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium to medium high heat. Dip 2 slices of bread into the egg mixture, letting excess drip off, and place in the pan. Cook until the undersides are crusty, golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook until the bottom sides are firm and flecked with brown, about 2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining butter, bread, and egg mixture.
  3. Serve hot with butter and maple syrup
