If you’ve never made French toast in your air fryer, now’s the time to do it. Using the air fryer means no messing around with pans and butter and delivers perfectly crisp French toast that is light and fluffy on the inside. I made French toast fingers but you can use thick slices of bread and make larger pieces of French toast if you prefer.

Ingredients Needed

  • Bread. I use brioche but any white bread/sourdough bread will work. Day-old bread is great as it absorbs more of the custard.
  • Eggs.
  • Cream. Heavy cream/whipping cream.
  • Salt.
  • Honey.
  • For serving: Maple syrup, icing sugar/powdered sugar and berries.

How to make French toast in the air fryer

  1. Make the custard: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, honey and a pinch of salt.
  2. Slice the bread: Using a sharp bread knife, slice the bread into thick fingers or slices.
  3. Soak: Place a few piece of bread into the custard at a time and allow to soak for a few seconds.
  4. Air fry: Remove the bread from the custard and place into the air fryer basket, lined with parchment paper. Spray with oil then air fry for 4-5 minutes at 205°C/400°F, flipping over halfway through cooking, until golden brown and crisp on both sides.
  5. Serve: Remove then dust with powdered sugar, drizzle with maple syrup and serve.

Can I make this ahead?

Although best served immediately after cooking, any leftovers can be kept in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge. Air fry for a few minutes to warm back up before serving.

Serving suggestions

French toast is delicious served with a variety of fruit but blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are always a good idea. Whipped honey butter will be delicious as will a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar. Add a side of crispy bacon and brunch is good to go!

I always use my Instant Pot Vortex Plus Versazone Air Fryer when developing air fryer recipes. It is by far the most efficient air fryer I’ve used and the basket size is excellent for a larger family. This post is sponsored by Instant Brands South Africa.
