Eggnog French Toast with Raspberry Sauce

7 reviews / 4.9 average

Today's eggnog French toast happiness is sponsored by King's Hawaiian, makers of the yummy bread that got fried up into beautifully golden brown THIS.

Raise your hand if you love eggnog! *ooh! me me me me meeee*

When I think of eggnog, I think of dark-by-4pm nights and my dad doing his nightly December ritual: sitting by the fire after dinner, flipping through piles and piles of Christmas cards, sipping eggnog out of a old-fashioned tin Trout Lake Camp mug and snacking on a few Christmas cookies. And me and my sister sitting on the floor strategically close to Dad, nabbing any leftover cookie crumbs or single sprinkles that might just happen to crumble our way because that's how we do, me and my sister. Doesn't it just feel like Little House on the Prairie in a less classy, more scroungy, 1980's kind of way?

Ah, yes. The magic of Christmas.

Steps to making french toast.

How good is this stuff? Like wows. Sweet King's Hawaiian bread gets dunked in the most simple, creamy, smells-like-heaven eggnog French toast batter and fried up to golden brown perfection and topped with a homemade honey raspberry sauce. Oh good gravy, that stuff is yummy.

As much as I love the French toast, this weekend I am doing something besides eating French toast I KNOW IT I KNOW IT I KNOW. It's a big deal. Me and Bjork and Mom and Dad are going to a Christmas concert for my all-time favorite Christmaser singer and the musical idol of my childhood: Amy Grant.

AMY! Aaaay-meeeeee! Amy, it's me, Amy!

Between mirror lip-synching and sisterly dance parties, Amy basically wrote the soundtrack to my tween years so there's a lot of love there beyond just the charm of her Christmas albums. Her concert was, I think, the first concert I ever went to with my fellow Amy-loving friend, and we basically sat in the back somewhere and geeked out with overwhelming bangs-and-braces fangirl love. I was probably wearing denim bib overalls. I mean, WHAT ELSE. Seriously.

Tomorrow: this for breakfast, pizza downtown for dinner, and Amy's “I'll Be Home for Christmas” for dessert.

Bjork has a thing for French toast and he also has a thing for eggnog — a thing called Buying It and Never Actually Drinking It. So this is a perfect way for me to 1) use up the eggnog like the always resourceful and clever homemaker that I am, and 2) make Bjork happy on a Christmasy December morning.

It has obviously nothinggg to do with me loving that heaping pile of warm, soft golden brown French toast with the raspberries drizzling down the side and a nice creamy shmear of whipped cream. NOTHING AT ALL to do with that. Never.

May your days be merry and bright, and may all your breakfasts be Eggnog French Toast with Raspberry Sauce.

That totally works. I bet Amy loves that.

Eggnog French Toast with Raspberry Sauce

  • Author: Skillful Cook
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: makes 10 pieces of French Toast 1x


This Eggnog French Toast is so simple - just four ingredients to make the batter! Topped with a homemade raspberry sauce.


Units Scale

For the Eggnog French Toast

  • 10 slices King's Hawaiian Bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

For the Raspberry Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold water


  1. Set the bread slices out on a plate overnight to dry out. If you don't have time or you're making this on short notice, that's okay - this isn't essential, but it helps the texture.
  2. For the raspberry sauce, heat the raspberries, water, and honey in a small saucepan over low heat. When the mixture resembles a thin sauce and is slightly bubbling around the edges, add the dissolved cornstarch and water and stir to combine. Continue to heat for a few minutes so that the cornstarch thickens the sauce just slightly. Remove from heat and let stand while you prep the French Toast. If you want a thicker sauce, add more cornstarch.
  3. Whisk the eggs, eggnog, flour, vanilla, and cinnamon together until mostly smooth. Preheat a griddle over medium high heat (about 400 degrees). I always use my Griddler for French toast - it has the temperature dials right on the side and it makes it super easy to get that even golden brown color. Highly recommend!
  4. When the griddle is hot, place a small pat of butter on it to melt. Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and flip back and forth several times to fully saturate. Place the dipped bread on the hot, buttered skillet and fry for 5-8 minutes, flip once, and fry for another 5 minutes or until both sides are evenly golden brown.
  5. Plate the individual slices of French toast and top with the raspberry sauce, whipped cream, maple syrup, powdered sugar, or any other fun + yummy thing that you like.

    AMY GRANT!? I ADORE THAT WOMAN. We always listened to her growing up, especially at Christmas time! I have a serious case of the jealousies right now.
    But, I also have eggnog french toast WITH RASPBERRY SAUCE <–whathewhat? I NEED THAT.
    It will help me get over it methinks. Pinned!

    We love eggnog French toast, but have never made it with King’s Hawaiian bread…I think that probably makes it even better! And with raspberry sauce? Yum!

  3. Skillful Cook Logo

    This looks DELICIOUS! I don’t see a recipe posted though! Please share 🙂

    Also, I was the winner of your Oliviers and Co shopping spree back in late summer time! I got a bottle of basil olive oil (insert drooly face here) for myself, but mostly took the opprotunity to do some early Christmas shopping for my food loving friends and family. I finally had the opprotunity to give some of the items away last night and it was SO much fun tasting everyones oils/vinegars/balsamic condiments. So so yummy!

    Thank you for the opprounity to share yums with my loved ones 🙂

    Amy Grant brings back some wonderful memories . How about Rebecca St. James? Love her as well! AND love this recipe – or at least I know I am gonna soon =) YUM

    Awesome-sauce! I didn’t know that Hawaiian Brad had sliced bread. Maybe it isn’t in my neck of the woods yet. Then again, I don’t really eat or buy bread enough to know what is out there versus what isn’t. I personally don’t like egg nog but I wonder how it would taste used in French Toast. Hmmm. Love the recipe!

  6. Skillful Cook Logo

    I totally just posted a recipe for eggnog pancakes but I’m definitely up for more eggnog-ness! It should be a part of every breakfast during the holidays! This looks completely awesome!

  7. Skillful Cook Logo

    Yumoyum! I looovvveee eggnog and I’m loving all the great recipes for cooking with it too.

    Eggnog french toast is one of those secret recipes that few have tasted, but those that have, know. Know what? That it’s like the most perfect combination ever and once you have it you can’t just go back to your life of regular french toast.
    So yeah, you could say I’m a fan.

    Oh My Goodness. A– MUST eat this this weekend (since I have to get some stuff from the store. Otherwise it would be as soon as I get home from school!)
    B– Amy. Grant. We listened to SO MUCH Amy Grant back in the day. Actually, when I lived in MN, so middle school times. Her version of O little town of Bethlehem is my favorite! Have a wonderful time!

    The comments are really long and skinny on my iMac. I had to scroll down for forever and ever. Something is up and you’re the guy to fix it. I’ll be checking later. 😉

    Lindsay, if I ever doubted your culinary genius, this would have proved me wrong for eternity and beyond. Eggnog and sliced King’s bread… It doesn’t get any better than that!

    Okay, so I think I have just found our new tradition for Christmas morning, thank you very much! Ana loves egg nog, so I will have to buy it secretly to have enough to dip the yummy bread. Thanks! I am so jealous of your concert plans. I was going to surprise Ana with tickets, but the only ones left were obstructed view. Boo hoo! Have a tremendous time!

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      Aw, shoot! Wish you guys could have made it! We had a great time. I’m listening to the Amy Grant CDs all day every day now. 🙂

    Have I been living under a rock?! King’s Hawaiian has bread loaves? Ah this is life changing. By this I mean this recipe using king’s hawaiian bread. This looks insanely good, especially among the sea of peppermint recipes that are circling right now!

    This is the most dreamiest of breakfasts.. I might have to start a thing with egg nog… the same thing as Bjork!
