The Greatest Breakfast of Your Life (French Toast Pancakes)

I must confess.  I am really sorry.  My blog has failed you.

Where have all the new pancake recipes gone?  No really.  Where oh where did you baby girls go.  A few days ago, I was skimming through my blog reader and someone’s blog caught my eye (as do all her recipes).  I just knew what I would be making in the next few days and for the next few days.

If you haven’t already checked out Susan’s blog, it is one of the most inspirational I read.  Actually I take that back, every single post she posts captivates me in some way or another.  She also has also has some of the best recipes on the planet.


I have been eating chocolate, orange or chocolate chip pancakes everyday for a while but today I branched out.

French Toast Pancakes

Who knew breakfast could become even cooler. 

Take any of your favorite pancake recipes.  I took my orange zest (without the chocolate) batter because I had made a big thing of it earlier in the week.   You can use boxed mix, protein pancakes, chocolate, vanilla, coconut.  I don’t know be creative.

It isn’t that hard to create.  You already know how to create pancakes and you already know how to create French toast.  Now all you have to do is add the two together.  (Good thing I was a math major to help you out).

I personally used the mixture of (for my french toast transformation):

1 egg+1/2 cup egg whites

¼ cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp lemon juice (to bring out the orange zest ever more)

If I wasn’t using some sort of orangey pancake, I would have skipped the lemon, and added something sweet.  Oh well-that gives me something to do tomorrow.

These pancakes are super dense.  They were light and fluffy until transforming them into French toast pancakes.  They also are very moist.  If that isn’t your jive-no matter more for me.

Questions for you:

How do you make your french toast?

I like mine more eggy personally.


PS:  Be sure to email me photos of your sweet side braids for Fashion Friday!  😉

  1. I like mine eggy with TONS of cinnamon and maybe dusted in powdered sugar or brown sugar if I’m craving it.

  2. That is a truly amazing idea, another great one I’ve seen is pumpkin bread french toast how amazing does that sound!

  3. Aww what a good idea!! I must remember to email you a grime girl side braid!

  4. Really eggy with orange juice in the egg mixture + cinnamon and nutmeg. I also like when the egg is gooey on the bread but crispy on the outside. YUM.

    And don’t forget the maple syrup. 😉

  5. I love eggy french toast — with lots of cinnamon and vanilla too. So good.

    Are you super excited about ANTM all stars tonight or what???

  6. Mmm I haven’t had french toast in forever, but I love it! I need to get a side braid picture since my hair is so long and out of control these days. I did see a few girls rocking the ponytail + braid look in the gym today.

  7. Those look super yummy! I actually had pancakes last night and thought of you, but I haven’t had French Toast in forev!

  8. I might email you a picture of an ugly side braid because my hair doesn’t cooperate. Boo. Anyways i think that this is the most fabulous idea ever because I’m not really a fan of normal pancakes. Though maybe I will french toast a waffle because I like them better. That would be pretty exciting.

  9. Um yes, yes please for these 🙂 I used to like French Toast more than pancakes (I don’t know why-the horror) so I think combining these would be rather magical

  10. Nom, they look sooo tasty. I love Susans blog too, it’s great inspiration. I like french toast anyway but especially smothered in peanut buttahhh!

  11. I should do a side braid. Ok. I’ll do one next week, and now that I have said I will, I have to. Haha. 🙂

  12. So after reading this post yesterday, I got up this morning to make normal bread french toast. Except I added a splash of OJ and orange zest to the egg wash. SO good! Why had I never done that before?? Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
