Air fryer French toast fingers recipe

French toast made in an air fryer comes out extra crispy. Pour that sweet, creamy, condensed milk sauce on top for a special breakfast treat.

11 Ingredients

* 1 loaf day-old unsliced white bread

* 8 eggs

* 250ml (1 cup) milk

* 1 tbsp caster sugar

* 1 tsp ground cinnamon

* 1 tsp vanilla extract

* 60g butter, melted

Condensed milk sauce

* 395g can condensed milk

* 60ml (1/4 cup) pure cream

* 20g butter

* 1 tsp vanilla extract

5 Method / Steps

Step 1

Use a serrated knife to remove the crust from the bread. Cut bread into 3cm slices. Cut each slice into 3cm-thick fingers.

Step 2

Whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow dish until well combined. Cut a sheet of baking paper large enough to line the base of the air fryer and use a small, sharp knife to pierce holes in the paper. Lay paper on your work surface.

Step 3

Soak 3 pieces of bread in the egg mixture for 1 minute on each side. Carefully lift out and let the excess egg mixture run back into the dish. Place soaked bread onto paper and lift into the air fryer basket.

Step 4

Cook at 180C for 3 minutes, then carefully lift out. Brush tops lightly with melted butter, then turn over, brushing the other side. Return to the air fryer and cook for a further 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread, egg mixture and melted butter.

Step 5

To make the sauce, combine condensed milk, cream, butter and vanilla in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the butter has just melted and the mixture is combined. Serve French toast drizzled with condensed milk sauce.
