Grandma’s Old-Fashioned French Toast

by Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc.

French toast is one of those quintessential comfort foods that always reminds us of our childhood. Perhaps our mom or grandmom used to make it for us when we were little…Whatever the memory, there’s something about the warm, fragrant smell of cinnamon, vanilla, and eggy, buttery bread that never fails to touch our hearts.

During busy seasons and dreary winter days, we long for this classic dish to help lift our spirits and take us back to a simpler time. Therein lies the key ingredient: simplicity. Days at grandma’s house were slower, longer, easier. And her meals were the same way.

She used fresh, wholesome ingredients—real butter, real milk, and fresh eggs.

We can look all around for the perfect French toast recipe, one that tastes “just like Grandma used to make…” But there really is no secret ingredient (unless you count love); just a few simple steps, and a couple minutes of time.

A great French toast recipe deserves a simply great bread—one made with quality ingredients and dedication. That’s why Martin’s new Old-Fashioned Real Butter Bread is made with 100% real butter, high protein wheat flour, nonfat milk, real cane sugar, and other high-quality ingredients.

    Congratulations on your new butter bread . Makes the best grilled cheese sandwich and toast bread. They are toasty crispy outside moist and soft inside- outstanding!
    Will try French Toast next I use whipping cream instead of milk. Try it

    • Rebecca V. says:

      Hi Don!

      Thank you for the congratulations – we are very excited about our new product and happy to hear you are a fan of it! Thanks for the recipe suggestion as well; we’ll have to try that the next time we make French Toast. 🙂

    Hello, I absolutely love your new Old-Fashioned Real Butter Bread. I discovered it recently at our local supermarket. Tried it and now hooked! Makes any kind of sandwich taste great. It’s also thicker than most, which I love. I’m going to try your French toast recipe tomorrow morning. I love all the Martin’s potato rolls and buy all the time. Thanks for your new product. I thought it was important to pass along my thoughts to you. All The Best!

    I tried the recipe today and was great and delicious thanks.

  • Claudette L. says:

    Butter Bread is so good buy 5 loafs at a time when I go to the store

  • Sarah R. says:

    I didn’t enjoy it maybe I undercooked it or what I didn’t like it and also Donna is your last name Martin

  • To Sarah R. says:

    I think you have to cook it correctly before you can comment on whether it’s good or bad.
    I think I’m going to try it with nutmeg instead of cinnamon and maybe use the heavy cream as well. If I can find that bread, I’ll give that a go as well. Thanks for the foundation recipe.

  • Esmé W. says:

    I tried this recipe a couple of times and finally got it to work! I would add half and half instead of milk, and it probably would have been better with the butter bread. But it is a good recipe!

    • Rebecca V. says:

      Hi Esmé!

      Glad to hear you enjoyed this recipe! Thanks for the great suggestion about using half-and-half in place of milk. We’ll make sure to keep that in mind for future recipes.

      If you decide to make this recipe again, we definitely would recommend trying it with Martin’s Butter Bread. If you do, let us know what you think!
