Vegan French Toast Recipe Tips
Below I am answering some of the most common questions I thought I'd get for this recipe!
How do you make French toast without egg?
For this specific recipe, I use Just Eggs as a vegan egg substitute, but you could also try:
- A flax meal egg
- A chia seed egg
- Other egg replacers
How much Just Egg equals a chicken egg?
If you are looking to replace eggs in other baking endeavors, typically, 3 tablespoons of Just Egg is equivalent to one chicken egg. For this recipe, we use ½ cup of Just Egg, which is about 3 chicken eggs.
What's the best bread for French toast?
If you decide to make this recipe on a whim and only have regular sandwich bread on hand, go for it! However, if you are going all out, run to the store and get either Texas toast, ciabatta, or French bread. Ideally, you want a thick piece of bread that will soak in all the batter and not fall apart.
Why do you add flour to the French toast batter?
Flour is my not-so-secret ingredient that ensures a drool-worthy piece of French toast! It makes the liquid that you soak the bread in thicker and more of a batter. This results in a fluffy and delicious French toast.
What toppings go best on French toast?
There are so many great options - maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit, coconut, Nutella, whipped cream, nuts, and/or jam... to name a few! I'd love to hear what you prefer to top your French toast with, so comment below with your pick.
Can you save this French toast for later?
This vegan French toast keeps very well! Store it in the refrigerator for up to three days, or wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for up to two months. I recommend throwing them in the regular oven or a toaster oven at 350° for 10 minutes or until heated through.
