How to Make Vegan French Toast with "Just Egg" (FREE PDF Recipe Download)
Completely plant-based french toast?! Can this be possible? I've had some friends share with me how after going vegan they never thought they could make french toast again and I was pleasantly surprised myself with how AMAZING this recipe came out after a little research online.
I'm using Just Egg to fill in for the eggs in the custard mixture and boy did it work well! I don't know if you've tried Just Egg yet but I've been loving it. If you don't have any on hand you can try 1 1/2 to 2 mashed bananas instead.
Oh! And you can find the perfect recipe for vegan whipped cream HERE!
I've spruced up the standard french toast by adding in some orange zest and cardamom and a cornflake crust surprise to give it the perfect crispy coating. This recipe is so packed with flavor I can't wait for you to try it!
Have fun, get creative and ENJOY! You've got this!
Vegan French Toast
Serves: 4-6 | Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 5 Mins | Ready: 15 Mins
Bread Loaf - Brioche
Just Egg (1/2 cup-4 eggs worth)
Oat Milk (1/2 cup)
Brown Sugar (2 tbsp)
Vanilla (1 Tsp)
Ground Cardamom (1/2 Tsp)
Orange Zest to taste
Salt to taste
Corn Flake Crust
Brown Sugar (2 tbsp)
Ground Cardamom to Taste
Salt to Taste
Garnish / Extras
Syrup or Honey
Preheat your pan to a medium to medium-high heat. Slice the loaf of bread into approx 1/2 inch thick slices. You want them a little thicker than the standard sliced bread from the store. If you can't find brioche bread, any white bread with a soft crust will do.
Whisk together the just egg, oat milk, brown sugar, vanilla, ground cardamom, orange zest, and salt until combined and creamy. Leave aside in a separate bowl for dipping.
Combine the cornflakes, brown sugar, ground cardamom, and salt in a blender until the texture of the cornflake mix is fine. Place in a bowl for dipping.
Soak bread in the custard mix for approx 10-20 seconds on each side of the bread slice - then evenly coat both sides of the bread with the cornflake mixture.
Melt butter and place the coated bread slices into the skillet - wait until the bottom is golden brown before flipping. You should only need to flip once.
Remove from the skillet and plate! You can top with powdered sugar, honey, maple syrup, fresh fruit, or whatever else you're in the mood for.
Serve and enjoy!
