Rehabilitated Stale Bread


Stale no more!

Nothing is more disappointing than to buy a fresh baked loaf of bread only to find it hard as a rock within a few days. Economical uses of stale bread? Breadcrumbs for meatloaf, garbage, hitting your siblings or boyfriend….

Or, make french toast. This recipe (as well as others, I’m sure) will work miracles with the bread to the point where you’d think it just came out of the oven.

As always, garnish with a ton of syrup, strawberry sauce (recipe below), powdered sugar, and whipping cream.


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 12 thick slices bread  (I prefer to use fresh loaves of french bread. Thin slides of french toast are booring *yawn*)


Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.

Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. This could take a few minutes on each side if the bread is very stale. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.
