Brazilian French Toast

Brazilian French Toast
There are many variations on Brazilian French toast, although all of them are fried and then sprinkled with sugar. In our version, we garnish the toast with our cinnamon French toast sugar.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 3⁄4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1⁄2 cup water
  • 3⁄4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbs. dark rum
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 8 baguette slices, cut diagonally 1 inch thick
  • Canola oil for frying
  • Cinnamon French toast sugar for sprinkling*


In a bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, water, vanilla, rum, salt and eggs. Pour into a shallow baking dish. Place the baguette slices in the egg mixture, then turn them over; they should be completely submerged in the liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to overnight.

In a deep fryer, pour in oil and heat to 375°F according to the manufacturer's instructions. Working in batches, fry the bread until golden and crispy, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle generously with French toast sugar. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
