Cuban French Toast recipe - How to Make Torrejas Cubanas

Cuban French toast torrejas

A great use for leftover Cuban bread is torrejas, Cuban-style French toast. If you don't make your own Cuban bread, or can't find it locally, you can buy it online at the Cuban Food Market. But you can also use a loaf of French bread.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • Cook Time: 20 minutes

  • Total Time: 30 minutes



1 loaf Cuban bread
4 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoon dry wine
1 can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup sugar
2 cups oil for frying*



Mix eggs, milk, sugar, wine, vanilla and cinnamon; cut bread in slices less than 1" thick. Soak bread in the milk mixture. Fry in hot oil until lightly golden. Serve with sugar syrup or any other type syrup (maple, fruit syrup, etc).

*Instead of so much oil, I prefer to fry them in just a small amount of butter. This recipe yields about 12 slices.
