Air Fryer French Toast

Table of Contents


  • 4 slices of bread (white, whole wheat, or your choice)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray or oil mister

Optional Toppings:

  • Maple syrup
  • Fresh berries
  • Powdered sugar
  • Whipped cream


Step 1: Preparing the French Toast Mixture

  1. Mix the Batter:
    • In a shallow bowl or dish, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon until well combined.

Step 2: Preparing the Bread

  1. Soak the Bread:
    • Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides thoroughly. Allow excess mixture to drip off.

Step 3: Air Frying the French Toast

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C) for about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Spray the Air Fryer Basket:
    • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray or use an oil mister to coat the basket.
  3. Air Fry the French Toast:
    • Place the soaked bread slices in the air fryer basket in a single layer. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
    • Air fry at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking, until the French toast is golden brown and crispy on both sides.

Step 4: Serving

  1. Serve Hot:
    • Remove the French toast slices from the air fryer and serve immediately.
    • Top with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, powdered sugar, or whipped cream.

Tips for Success:

  • Bread Selection: Use thick-cut slices of bread that can hold up to soaking without falling apart. Brioche or challah bread works particularly well for French toast.
  • Even Cooking: Arrange the bread slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket to ensure even cooking and crispy texture.
  • Customization: Feel free to adjust the amount of cinnamon and sugar in the egg mixture to suit your taste preferences.
  • Cooking Time: Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your bread and the model of your air fryer. Keep an eye on the French toast towards the end of cooking to avoid burning.

Air Fryer French Toast is a delightful breakfast or brunch option that’s quick to prepare and requires minimal cleanup. Enjoy the crispy exterior and soft, fluffy interior of this classic dish with your favorite toppings for a delicious start to your day!
