I haven't had the best luck making french toast. What are the PPK's favorite recipes and tips for french toast that doesn't fall apart?

My favorite is still the Fronch Toast from VWAV (although I always just use all soy milk for the liquid). The key to keeping it from falling apart is to start with a very hearty/chewy bread - a French loaf is going to be better than sliced sandwich bread. Slice it thick (like an inch) and leave it lightly covered overnight to dry out (or put it in a VERY low oven for a few minutes).

The VWaV one is great! We made it yesterday and it always turns out well! We use Exekiel sprouted bread and it's very tasty and doesn't fall apart.

I do the VWAV one. I've started adding 1/2 tsp of black salt, and using powdered soy milk so it's not sweet (I don't like sweet vanilla-y freanch toast). Delish.

We always do the VWAV one too with just almond milk for all the liquid. I always use a stale baguette and it holds together great.

I love the one in Chloe's Vegan Desserts; I make it with rye bread (sounds weird but it's great)!

I make the VwaV Fronch toast recipe too, but my problem is never bread falling apart---- it's not being able to get the liquid to soak all the way through the bread. Should I be using more liquid? Holey bread? Being more patient during the break soaking?

My family also prefers non-sweet things for breakfast, and this is how we do it!

Thanks for the posts. I'll try the VWAV recipe again with older, more stale bread.

Good luck! As PB said, you can lightly toast the bread as well. We use sprouted grain bread and it never falls apart fwiw

I haven't made that recipe but when I make french toast with cheap sandwich bread I just barely let it get moist to help the goopiness, along with toasting it first.

I usually make an extra loaf of challah on Friday night and loosely wrap it so by Sunday morning brunch it's slightly stale. It's worked really well. I haven't tried making it with regular bread in a while, but the last time I did I was dismayed at how soggy it got. I'll remember the toasting trick next time.
