Our Most Popular Alternative – Air Fryer Toast

Equipment Needed

  • Air Fryer – we now use a Ninja Foodi Max Dual Zone Air Fryer – the 9.5 litre two drawer cooking space is BRILLIANT when you’re cooking for a family or cook larger portions. Or just like to cook two different things on different settings at the same time!  
  • Shallow bowl
  • Fork
  • Tongs – just makes it easier to lift the toast from the air fryer basket. I’d 100% recommend you get yourself a set of silicone tongs if you do a lot of air fry cooking. They just make it so much easier to flip and remove food. Plus they don’t scratch the air fryer non-stick coating.

  • Milk – we use whole milk, but you can swap this for heavy cream if you prefer. Or if you need dairy-free opt for a plant based type of milk like almond milk or oat milk.
  • Ground cinnamon – just as much or little as you like. You could use teaspoon vanilla extract if cinnamon isn’t your thing.
  • Maple syrup – this air fryer French toast is lush with a drizzle of maple syrup, but you could also use honey or golden syrup
