These sweet-smelling Churro French Toasts make you wake up fully after having these for breakfast. They are also a great snack in the afternoon to regain energy. 

I always like french toasts for breakfast. And when it comes to snacks, I had made myself some churros from time to time because I love the aroma of cinnamon. Hmm!

And then I got this idea of making both of them as one. So I made this Churro French Toast. They are so lovely to look at with a delightful smell of cinnamon. Yummy

Just like when I made this Budin de Pan. Cinnamon always attracts me.

What is Churro French Toast?

Let’s have a little trivia about French Toast and Churro first before they became a combination.

The French Toast

French Toast is a sliced bread dipped in beaten eggs, with milk, and then pan-fried.

Although it is named French toast, it did not originate in France. In fact, the origin is not clear. Before the French toast became popular, there were recipes with almost the same ingredients as earlier as the 1st century AD.

This sweet bread was known with other names depending on what country or place it was made. Like Arme Ritter (Poor Knights) in Germany (since the 14th century), Rabanadas in Brazil and Portugal, Pain Perdu in France with different variations regionally.

The name French Toast is said to be first used during the 17th  century in England. It is said that a Chef named Joseph French introduced this recipe. The name was supposed to be French’s Toast. But he forgot to include the apostrophe, thus, became French Toast. Then, it was brought to America later.

The Churro

Churro or Churros, on the other hand, is a very simple recipe. It is made up of flour, eggs, butter, sugar, and some salt made into dough. Then shaped into thin, long cylinders, and deep-fried. They are dipped immediately in sugar and most often combined with cinnamon.

The Churro is said to be originated from Spain and Portugal. A popular story is that the recipe came from Spanish shepherds who were living in high mountains. Because of limited access to some other foods, they make the Churro, being one of the easiest food they can make. Later on, became popular.

They are also popular in the countries where Spanish and Portuguese came into during those conquistadores period such as in South America, Mexico, even in the Philipines.

The Churro French Toast

More varieties are created with the combinations of popular recipes as time passes. Just like this Churro French Toast.

Bread is used instead of making dough for the Churro. And also, some French toasts have added cinnamon powder in the beaten egg mixture for added flavor. (I do that, actually. Loved it!.).

I guess the one who first tried dredging french toast in sugar-cinnamon mixture is brilliant. Turns out to be so delicious.

I also have a different way of making these Churros French Toasts. Such as slicing them to look like breadsticks. But the most popular is the plain ol’ French toast sliced bread.

How to Make Churro French Toast

Making it is quite easy, especially if you already tried french toasts. You’ll just need the right ingredients.

Churro cinnamon sugar ingredients

  • ½ Cup sugar
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tsp cinnamon

French toasts ingredients:

  • 8 Slices of bread
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tsp cinnamon
  • ½ Tsp vanilla extract
  • Butter for cooking (around 4 Tbsp)

Directions

Prepare the churro cinnamon sugar:

In a shallow bowl combine the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon until everything is incorporated. Set aside.

Prepare the French toasts:

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla until everything is well combined.

Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture on all sides one at a time.

Then add the dipped slices to the skillet and cook until both sides are evenly golden brown. About 2 minutes on each side.

The Churro French Toast

Remove from the skillet. Immediately toss over to the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Then place on a wire rack to cool down.

Continue and do the same with the other bread slices.

Serve immediately. Place your favorite toppings such as syrup, cream cheese glaze, or chocolate sauce.

Notes:

  • For the bread, I used Hawaiian Sweet Sliced Bread (King’s Hawaiian) but you can use any slightly sweet and fluffy bread you like. This is also delicious with challah. 
  • To make a variety, cut the bread like breadsticks. Do the same as in the instructions to make the Churro French Toast Breadsticks.
