Whole-Wheat Irish Soda Bread French Toast

SONY DSCAll the talk of healthy soda bread yesterday, just for this: a less than healthy syrupy breakfast treat. That’s what the omission of sugar and the addition of whole wheat flour are for, though…right?SONY DSC

In all seriousness this can be kept light if you just top this Irish Soda Bread with fresh fruit, homemade plum jam, or home canned cherries. We like 100% maple syrup in our house because, after all, this is a treat!SONY DSC

This would be a great breakfast for St. Patrick’s day morning. It’s traditional and sure to be a hit with the kiddos…or those french toast loving adults, like myself. 😉SONY DSC

Hope all is going well with you and yours.

Irish Soda Bread French Toast


1 loaf Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread

3 Tbsp butter

3 eggs

1/4 cup whole milk

1/2 Tbsp cinnamon

for topping:

100% maple syrup, raisins, berries, bananas, butter, powdered sugar…or whatever else you can dream up.


Slice the Irish Soda Bread loaf into thick slices. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over low-medium and lightly grease with butter.

Crack the eggs into a bowl, and whisk together to break up the yolks.  Add the milk and cinnamon. Whisk to combine with the eggs.

Dip both sides of the Irish Soda Bread slices into  the milk, egg and cinnamon mixture. Transfer dipped bread onto top of the greased hot skillet  Keep on for 3-5 minutes and then flip the slice onto the other side. The top should be golden brown. If it is not, you may want to flip the slice back over until that side is fully browned to your liking.

Repeat for each slice and serve hot with desired topping.

Love, Grey & Brianna
