Hong Kong French Toast Is So Good, I Made It Twice in One Day

Hong Kong French toast isn't like the original. Cha chaan tengs (tea establishments) serve it with peanut butter, sweetened condensed milk, and a pat of butter for added richness. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, or a delicious late-night dessert.   

Why You’ll Love It

I prefer it stuffed. Fry up some peanut butter and you've got yourself a guaranteed winner.   

When we talk about frying, it's definitely worth it. The extra-crisp outside provides the perfect counterpoint to the creamy within.    

An appealing creamy sweetness is achieved by adding sweetened condensed milk.  

Key Ingredients in Hong Kong-Style French Toast


The chewy texture and sturdy structure of milk bread make it ideal for this recipe, since it prevents the bread from collapsing too much when dipped in the egg mixture.   

Sweetened condensed milk. 

A trademark milk product used in every cha chaan tengs to sweeten Hong Kong Milk Tea or toast. This dish needs sweetened condensed milk because the custard has no sugar.

Peanut butter 

Cha chaan tengs employ sweetened peanut butter that doesn't separate, but natural peanut butter, which is savourier, tastes great.  

How to Make Hong Kong-Style French Toast

Hong Kong-style french toast is easy to make despite its appearance.   Put peanut butter between two milk bread slices.   Dip toast in egg-milk. Fry it directly in hot oil until crispy.   Put butter and sweetened condensed milk on top.
