Air-fryer French toast? Yes, we made this amazing dessert!

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

This air-fryer French toast recipe has a fairly simple ingredient list but plenty of taste!


French toast is one of those recipes which looks a lot harder than it is. Unsurprisingly, it’s even easier if you have a Cosori Air-fryer. This breakfast treat can be very fluffy if you get the batter right. Top it up with the right toppings, and you will be delighted.

One of our favourite reasons for using the Cosori for our air-fryer French toast recipe is that we can leave it cooking unattended. Usually, I clear up the kitchen in the meantime or prepare the toppings. Whereas if you are cooking it in a pan, you’ll need to keep a close eye on it so that it does not get burnt.

Another benefit is getting the ‘deep fried’ effect without all the extra oil and fat. It’s also very easy to clean the Cosori basket, so there is less cleaning up time. That’s a yes from me.


The ingredient list for Cosori air-fryer French toast is fairly simple. You will need thick slices of bread, eggs, milk, and vanilla. The toppings are up to you; you can be as creative as you like or still the simple and what works.

Make sure each slice in your loaf is around 1 inch in thickness. Since it is not common to find French loaves sliced to this thickness, you might need to buy an un-sliced loaf instead.


The un-sliced French loaf is not readily found in stores. However, with a little preparation beforehand, you can get your hands on a loaf just in time to make this recipe. We recommend speaking to or calling Greens Supermarket or Maypole Bakeries the day before to book an un-sliced French loaf. They are usually quite happy to help out.

According to Jon and I, the perfect amount of French toast slices is three. This three-layered Cosori air-fryer French toast recipe was enough for the two of us to share. Our toppings always depend on the season. Since June, we opted for some figs (figs are in season May – June in Malta). Paired with the figs, we added honey and feta cheese. Cinnamon is optional, but we would recommend it.

If figs do not tickle your fancy, or perhaps figs are not currently in season when you are reading this, there are plenty of different toppings you can opt for. You can keep it simple and just use cinnamon and honey. Another favourite is strawberries and Fraiche creme.


We love French toast with fresh fruit. A great combination is honey, blueberries, raspberries and fresh mint topping. For people with a sweet tooth, topping with Nutella and banana is an obvious choice.

This air-fryer French toast recipe can take between 15 and 25 minutes to prepare and cook in the Cosori. Many people will recommend cooking the battered French toast for 3 minutes on both sides at a low 160oC, however, we feel that to get the perfect golden toast colour, we prefer 8 minutes on both sides.

We found that the French toast was golden brown, crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside, just the way we like it!
