Ridiculously easy vegan french toast

There was some discussion on a vegan group recently about vegan French toast. Someone had tried making it but it was described as a big failure.  This surprised me, because I’ve been making the same easy, no-fail French toast recipe for close to ten years.

I can grant that perhaps I’m just not terribly picky where french toast is concerned.  I never liked the idea of egg drenched bread as an omnivore, so it’s not something that I ever really ate. But I enjoy vegan French toast, usually paired with maple syrup (of course) and a green smoothie. Once something is drenched in maple syrup, it’s automatically delicious.

I tried a number of vegan French toast recipes, including some that seemed quite complex or required speciality products, but the simple one I’ve settled on is as follows:

Ridiculously Easy Vegan French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 6 pieces of bread, your choice. A bit dry is better; if it’s too moist it will not cook properly
  • Half of a large package of silken tofu
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk, or water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Method:

  • Heat a frying pan with some oil in it to medium heat.
  • Blend everything except bread in a food processor or blender.
  • Pour batter into a bowl. Dip the pieces of bread one by one into the batter, covering well and allowing to penetrate the bread a bit.
  • Place in heated frying pan; cook until golden brown on both sides.
  • Eat with maple syrup poured all over them.

That’s it!

    Your recipe sounds delish. I just use a can of coconut milk as the batter. It always turns out yummy. Your recipe sounds like it would be more eggy which I now need to try immediately.
