Whipping Cream: None of hand? Simply replace it with your favorite milk. I have used skim, whole milk and even almond milk for this recipe…they all work great.

Bread: For french toast, I think a thicker sliced bread works best. Try and use a Texas toast or brioche. They are thicker and will absorb all that liquid better. Of course, regular sandwich bread will also do the trick.

Recipe Notes:

Air Fryer:

  • Cooking time may vary, depending on your air fryer and thickness of the bread. I recommend starting with just one slice to test. Then, cook the remaining slices as desired.
  • Do not overcrowd your air fryer basket. Work in batches when adding the slices.


  • Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.
  • Can These Be Frozen? Yes. Let french toast cool. Then, store in a freezer safe, covered container or storage bag. When you are ready to eat, reheat a slice in the microwave, toaster or toaster oven.

Many years ago while on my honeymoon, my husband and I had French toast at the Downtowner hotel at Niagara Falls. This recipe is very similar to what we had there. I add sugar to the egg milk mixture also. For this amount I would add 2 tablespoons of sugar. This also can be halved very easily for smaller households. I love to eat this later in the day so I leave one piece out of the fridge for this purpose.
