Raisin French Toast

I love living in Glendale, California, where we have wonderful Armenian bakeries, and lovely little Raisin Breads. They are reminiscent of Panettone. I had one Raisin Bread left over from making Apple Brown Betty, and I was looking for something interesting to make for breakfast this morning. I took the one bread, and using an electric knife, got it into 4 nice slices. You have to get yourself an electric knife for slicing bread. Your bread will last longer, and you can have it whatever thickness you like.

Happy Birthday Mom!

See, this is what you get when you make a good breakfast!

Recipe: Armenian Raisin Bread French Toast

Summary: The taste of these is exceptional.


  • 1 Armenian Raisin Bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Powdered pure cane sugar for topping


  1. Slice the bread into 4 slices. If you use an electric knife, you will have no problems.
  2. Mix the egg, milk, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla together in a shallow bowl.
  3. Heat a skillet on medium heat.
  4. Add the butter to the skillet and swirl it around to coat the skillet.
  5. Dip each piece of raisin bread in the egg mixture, then put it in the skillet.
  6. Turn the heat to low, and let the bread cook for about 2 minutes, then turn.
  7. Serve hot with powdered sugar on top.

Quick notes

Of course, you can do this with regular raisin bread, it just won’t be as good.

    I guess I’ll have to use Panetone, but this looks great!
