Eggnog French Toast with Maple Caramel Recipe

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4


This Eggnog French Toast is the perfect Christmas morning breakfast! Thick cut slices of bread soaked in an eggnog mixture, then pan fried until golden brown and crispy around the edges. It’s an amazing way to use up stale bread or eggnog and is great served with our homemade maple caramel sauce. *heart eyes*


Maple Caramel:

  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, room temp
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter, room temp
  • 3 tsp vegan cream or full-fat coconut milk

Eggnog French Toast:

  • 1 cup vegan holiday nog
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices sturdy, slightly stale bread
  • vegan butter for frying


  1. Make the maple caramel: In a small pan on the stove, add the cane sugar and heat on medium/high heat, stirring frequently, until dissolved. It will turn crumbly, then start to brown, and then become liquid.
  2. Remove from the heat and slowly add the maple syrup, whisking carefully to combine. Add the vegan butter and cream, whisking to combine each into a silky caramel sauce. Place back on burner (turned off) to keep warm.
  3. Make the batter: in a shallow bowl, add the nog and cinnamon and whisk to combine.
  4. Make the french toast: heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, add some vegan butter. Dip a slice of bread in the batter, letting the excess drip off. Cook in the frying pan about 5 minutes per side, or until a golden crust forms. Don’t try to move it too soon or it will be stuck and make a mess!
  5. Serve immediately with a drizzle of maple caramel. Enjoy!
