Dutch Style French Toast

We Dutch call our French toast 'Wentelteefjes' which loosely translates as 'flipping little bitches' (in the nicest possible way, think baby female puppies). They are flipped three times, once in the eggs and milk, once in the pan and finally in the cinnamon sugar. This recipe makes 4 slices but can be multiplied easily.


  • 4 slices of day old white bread ( no wonderbread!)
  • 2 eggs
  • splash of milk (a little less than halve the volume of the eggs)
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamonon
  • generous knob of butter

Eggs & Milk

Mix the eggs with the milk and a pinch of salt. Cut of the crusts from your bread and dip the slices in the mixture. Let each slice soak up as much as they can.

Into the Pan

Melt the butter on a medium high heat until it is bubbling. Add the slices and flip them once the bottom is golden brown. While the slices are frying mix the sugar and cinnamon together on a plate.

Sugar Time

Transfer the wentelteefjes directly from the pan into the layer of cinnamon sugar and turn them once more. Cut into triangles and serve.
