Breakfast in 10 minutes? Yes please! Deliciously thick, chunky and very satisfying French Toast slices made using a cinnamon version of my soft microwave bread. Because its soaked in egg after cooking, I sliced three thicker slices instead of four). The macros are calculated per slice and I have excluded any toppings, as I assume some people prefer a savoury French Toast (like I do!) If you choose this option, simply omit the cinnamon from the recipe.
You will need to invest in an inexpensive, small, square microwave-friendly Tupperware for this recipe. Mine was approx. 11 x 11cm / 4.3 x 4.3-in, but its important that it’s deep as the mixture rises and you don’t want it to cook over. I sourced a suitable alternative for you on Amazon, which is deeper than you might need, but will do the job just perfectly. For those doing Dirty Keto, I discovered an amazing sugar-free syrup, which tastes and behaves exactly like the real thing! I have not included them in the macros below (even though they come in very low in carbs), but I encourage you to check it out. It’s called Sukrin Golden Syrup, High Fiber Sugar Alternative and I will be playing around with it a lot more in the future.

Cinnamon French Toast (Keto)
For the French Toast bread slices
- Whisk the eggs and olive oil in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients, ensuring the mixture has thoroughly combined. Grease a small, square microwave-friendly Tupperware – similar square dimensions to a slice of bread, approx. 11 x 11cm / 4.3 x 4.3-in. (Amazon link at the end of the recipe).
- Add the whisked egg mixture to the dry mix and combine very well. Pour the mixture into the prepared Tupperware.
- Place into the microwave on high for 1 minute 45 seconds, then remove. Turn the Tupperware out upside down and give it a little knock – it will tip out as a solid mass. If it doesn't, slide a knife around the edges. Once cool enough to handle, turn it on its side and slice into 3 thick slices.
- To finish the French toast, whisk the eggs well and add in the double cream and cinnamon, whisking well to combine.
- Heat a little light olive oil - or butter - (working in batches, one slice at a time) in a non-stick pan. Submerge the slices of bread into the egg mixture and allow to soak for a few seconds. Remove and allow the excess to drip off.
- Fry the egg-soaked bread over a moderate heat, pressing the bread down with an egg-lifter to ensure the egg has cooked sufficiently, flipping until browned on both sides. Remove and set aside, repeating the process until all three slices are done.
- The SUKRIN sugar alternative syrup has not been included in macros as I assume many readers prefer a savoury French Toast (like me!). If you choose to enjoy this French Toast savoury, simply omit the cinnamon and enjoy it with some reduced-sugar ketchup instead. (I feature a homemade tomato sauce on this site too. Check it out by using the SEARCH facility and typing Fresh Tomato Ketchup)
