You can use the homemade RumChata I shared on another post when making this.
RumChata is a creamy, spiced rum liqueur that has been made from Caribbean rums, real dairy cream and secret spices. The blend of flavors creates an unmistakable taste that is smooth and sweet, making it ideal for use in cocktails or sipped on its own.
What ingredients you need to make a RumChata French toast
RumChata is a smooth and creamy, lightly spiced cream liqueur. Crafted with Caribbean rum, real dairy cream, raw sugar and a secret blend of natural spices. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and creamy with just the right hint of spice.
It’s similar to Bailey’s Irish cream and I honestly love to use when making French toast and other creamy and indulgent breakfasts (RumChata pancakes anyone?)
Use thick cut sandwich bread slices to hold the RumChata goodness in. The slices should be thick enough so that the egg mixture doesn’t soak all the way through, and it’s also important to use a high-quality bread for a nice and crunchy texture when you bite into your finished French toast.
Just use any milk you have on hand. If you want your French toasts to be even more creamy you can use whole milk. That said, I often use almond milk or soy milk to make a dairy-free French toast.
The key for a good French toast that kind of holds up is the egg. The great thing is you only need one egg for this recipe.
For extra creaminess, add some heavy cream to the egg mixture. This will help create a rich and creamy texture in your French toast.
Because a little dash of cinnamon makes everything better.
How to store RumChata French toast
Enjoy the best of RumChata french toast with its freshly prepared flavor. If you can’t finish it in one sitting, save your leftovers!
Store them away and they’ll stay fresh until day two or three after they were made – just pop ’em back into a toaster for a warm reminder of their delightful taste.
Enjoy the ultimate brunch experience at home by preparing some delicious French toast with a range of tantalizing toppings! Top it off with RumChata whipped cream, and store any leftovers in an airtight container to keep them fresh for up to five days.
Give your French toast a delicious second chance! Gently warm it up on a nonstick pan at an inviting temperature, and soon enough you’ll be enjoying the fresh taste of breakfast again.

From adding too much dairy and sugar to the custard mix, to not preheating the pan before cooking – these blunders can ruin any French Toast dish.
