King’s Hawaiian® Famous French Toast

King's Hawaiian Sweet BreadThis past weekend I had the wonderful and exciting opportunity to attend Bloggy Bootcamp Philadelphia. It was so weird to have the event taking place in my city since I’m always traveling for events like this! But I’m so glad that I took the time to go, because I learned so much new information! One of the sponsors for the #BBCPhilly was King’s Hawaiian. And they hooked us up. I walked out of there with 3 bags of bread! And let me tell you something. This is like my new favorite bread. Now you know I love desserts and all of that. So I’ve got a mean sweet tooth. This bread is amazing! It has the perfect sweetness and it didn’t take much for me to fall in love with it! Every meal that I ate on Sunday consisted of King’s Hawaiian. No exaggeration. I have to share this French Toast recipe with you though.  I promise, you’ll thank me later.

{Recipe from King’s Hawaiian}


  • 4 (1-inch) thick slices King’s Hawaiian Bread
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • freshly grated Penzeys nutmeg ***this is my addition
  • Butter or oil for frying
  • Maple syrup


Slice bread crosswise so that each slice is about 1-inch thick. Cut larger slices into halves or thirds, if desired. Set aside.

King's Hawaiian Round Loaf
In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon (+ nutmeg).

Egg Mixture with Penzeys Nutmeg and Cinnamon

Quickly dip slices (do not soak) in egg mixture and cook until golden brown on both sides.

Keep egg mixture stirred and spices well blended.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup.

Kings Hawaiian Famous French Toast

I love breakfast. I love brunch.  I’m not a huge French Toast fan, but I’m totally hooked on this bread. So I knew that I had to try making French Toast with the round loaf. Part of me just knew it would be perfect. I will never use “regular” bread for French Toast again. It’s King’s Hawaiian all of the way! Not only did it taste wonderful, but it looked wonderful! You know me and my love affair for Penzeys – so I used Penzeys everything – Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Double Strength Vanilla. I just couldn’t imagine making French Toast without Nutmeg – could you? But overall this recipe was awesome, and I don’t think I’ll ever use another kind of bread for French Toast again!

**King’s Hawaiian gave out this bread at Bloggy Bootcamp but these thoughts & opinions are 100% my own.**
