Crunchy Stuffed French Toast

Not your regular French toast, but with a filling and with a crunch, to make your breakfast extra special…




I am in a mixed mood these days. As much as I am excited about the plans we have for the upcoming months InShaAllah, the level of uncertainity surrounding almost everything over here just dampens the entire spirit. Sometimes I tell myself that there is no need to think too much. It never solves the problem, in fact it just makes it worse. I hope I can get over with it as soon as I can with the amount of distraction that I can have…


Meanwhile, how does it feel to be thrown in to a group of total strangers? Over this weekend, I got an invite from a recent friend to join in a meet-up. Alhamdulillah, to be living here that we can actually meet up at least somewhere outside and have a little chit chat! Even though I wasn’t in the best of moods, I somehow got myself around and went with it. I do not know where I fit, but I am an introverted extrovert. I start slow but once I start, somebody has to be stop me. Hehe… I really loved that I went ahead with it. When the group is typically unknown, you can let go of your inhibitions and just be yourself. Over some delicious biriyani and kebabs, we chitchatted as if we had known each other for ages and had a really good time. In the process, we made some new friends and memories too…




If I could have French toast every day, I would. Would you? I totally love having it with my cup of tea for breakfast or for my evening snack. The girls, though not very fond, like the Nutella French toast more. I guess that isn’t a surprise. Having said that, I have been seeing the crunchy version floating around a lot. Cornflakes is something I have at home all the time and that too in big packs, because they get over quite quickly. My girls love cereal and they always prefer it for breakfast because, they can eat in it between their online classes without being too obvious. Hehe…


So this toast is basically a modified version, where there is a filling of choice, then the bread is dunk into egg mixture and rolled in crushed cornflakes. The only pointer for this dish is to cook on really low flame so that the cornflakes don’t get burned. They tend to when the flame is slighty on the higher side and obviously nobody wants charred bits. If you don’t have cornflakes, you can use crushed thin vermicelli as well. Off to this comfort breakfast recipe…

  • 4 slices large bread
  • 2-4 tbsp jam/ Nutella/ Biscoff/ peanut butter/ cream cheese as per choice, can be mix
  • 1 egg large
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • A pinch of cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup corn flakes crushed
  • Butter as needed


  • Spread your choice of filling in one slice of bread and top with another. Make another set as such.
  • Whisk together the egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla till well combined.
  • Dip each of the bread in it till well coated all over. Then roll in the crushed corn flakes.
  • Heat skillet and slather butter generously. Cook on low flame, flipping till both sides are golden brown.
  • Serve hot as is or with fruits and whipped cream.


The stuffing is totally your choice. I have used Biscoff over here, but peanut butter + jam would be an amazing combination.
Make sure to cook on low flame since the corn flakes will get burned and the egg coating inside may not get properly done.
