Crafting a delicious Passover French Toast involves a simple twist to my traditional French Toast recipe: I swap out the usual bread for my Passover sponge cake or chiffon cake. The results are sublime and often even better than the year-round version! The cake can be homemade, store bought or from a mix. Enjoy!


  • 3 eggs
  • 6 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 slices of your favorite Passover sponge, chiffon, or angel food cake (homemade, store-bought or made from a mix)
  • Butter for frying the French toast
  • Confectioners sugar (optional)
  • Maple syrup (optional)

In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, milk and vanilla.

Dip the cake slices on both sides in the egg mixture.

Heat about 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet. When the butter is hot, place the dipped cake slices into the skillet and cook until golden brown on each side.
Serve with a sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar or pour on some maple syrup.
