Cinnamon Raisin French Toast
Our family LOVES French toast, we make it almost every weekend. A morning that starts with French toast is always a good morning, trust me! Well, we recently made French toast with Raisin’ the Roof! bread by Dave’s Killer Bread and we are officially hooked. The cinnamon raisin bread makes the best French toast!
And I know some of you are probably in the raisin hater club, but our family loves raisins in all things…cookies, cinnamon rolls, energy bites, and now French toast. Bring on the raisins, we love them, and I think you will too. Give this cinnamon raisin bread a chance. It is SO good, especially in French toast form.
Easy Breakfast Treat
You don’t need to go out to breakfast or brunch because this French toast recipe is easy to whip up at home. You can enjoy a special breakfast in your own kitchen, in your pajamas, which is a big time bonus. I love lazy AND delicious mornings at home.
It all starts with the most perfect cinnamon raisin bread. The Raisin’ the Roof! bread isn’t your ordinary breakfast bread! It is power-packed with whole grain nutrition and made with no high fructose corn syrup. It is also very hearty and holds up to make a killer piece of French toast.
Favorite French Toast
The cinnamon raisin bread brings out the cinnamon flavor in the French toast even more and that is a VERY good thing. If you want to go all out, you can sprinkle each piece of French toast with a little cinnamon sugar. You can also top the French toast with the classic toppings: butter, maple syrup, and a dusting of powdered sugar. I always like to add a few berries for a pop of color too!
Make your morning extra special with Cinnamon Raisin French Toast!

What a great idea to use the Raisin’ The Roof Bread in your french toast. I will have to try that with my large family! Thanks for the idea!
Hello! I just have to say this is GORGEOUS!! French toast is definitely one of my favorite breakfasts. And cinnamon raisin bread only makes it that much more appealing!
Thank you for this nice recipe and Merry Christmas!
great twist on the classic and great time of year for fun breakfasts like this, haven;t otherwise made french toast the classic version or a modified version like this recipe in years so thank you for this recipe

3 adds to get to the page. another popped up when I got to the page and scrolls with me . and now they are in the recipe too. 11 ads? I know you need it to make money but when it interferes with making the things you provide…I have to unsubscribe.
I don’t usually eat breakfast but thus French toast looks yummy ..all your receipts I have made came out perfect . Thank you I love your sight !
Excellent! I used my own homemade sourdough cinnamon swirl bread. The egg to milk ratio is just right. The French toast slices were light and fluffy. The cinnamon and vanilla in the egg mixture add flavor. I drizzled the slices with maple syrup, dusted with powdered sugar, and served with a side of wild blueberry sauce. Delicious!
I tired this recipe this morning and it was absolutely amazing!! My husband and toddlers loved it!! Thank you!
This is possibly the best French toast I have ever tasted! Had a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread left over from the holidays so tried this wonderful recipe!! Thanks for sharing!!!
We had some cinnamon chip bread from a local bakery and combined with this recipe it made FABULOUS French toast. Thank you!
This had absolutely no flavor lol. I’ve had other recipes and they have been full of flavor but this one is so bland. I taste more eggs than anything. No vanilla, cinnamon, nothing. The craziest thing is I used cinnamon raisin bread and the flavor was taken over by eggs. If you want a bland basic no flavor recipe this is for you. If you’re looking for something with flavor find a different recipe.
I LOVE this recipe! I used one egg to 1/4 cup milk and doubled it and got 18 slices of French toast and rave reviews. I always toss in a little cardamon, too.
Just because there’s cinnamon in the bread doesn’t mean you can’t add some more spices! I added some nutmeg, cloves, and ginger (basically pumpkin spice) plus a teeny bit of dark brown sugar in the egg batter to help carmelize it a bit. And then used half and half for the milk, and sliced some bananas on top.
