French toast with crème fraîche and strawberries, it is as easy as it sounds and a truly magical breakfast or snack. Let the strawberry flavor surprise you in this easy French toast recipe.


  • 1 lb strawberries (400g)
  • 2-3 tbsp brown sugar (see note)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 thick slices of bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk or whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3-4 oz crème fraîche (100g)


Roast the strawberries:

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Remove the stems from the strawberries.
  4. In a bowl, mix strawberries with sugar and lemon juice.
  5. Place strawberry mixture on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes.

Make the French toast:

  1. In a shallow bowl or shallow dish, beat egg and vanilla. Stir in milk.
  2. Dip bread slices one by one in egg mixture, coating both sides, and place aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt butter.
  4. Cook bread slices until golden brown on both sides (about 3-5 minutes per side).


  1. Top French toast with cream, roasted strawberries, and a drizzle of maple syrup.


  • Use the lesser amount of sugar if you are not such a sweet beak or if you're using ripe strawberries during strawberry season. Use more sugar when using under-ripe strawberries.
  • You can use cream cheese or ice cream as alternatives to the crème fraîche.
