French Toast is called Rabanda in Brazil. It is a traditional Christmas dish in Brazil. This is just another variation of the French toast.

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • About 3 tablespoons oil for pan-frying
  • Sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle, condensed milk or syrup to pour over fried bread


  1. It is best to buy the bread the previous, slice it and keep it overnight in an open container.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add egg yolks and beat again until thick.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine half can of condensed milk with the milk.
  4. Soak lightly each slice of bread with the dissolved condensed milk, drain the excess and coat the slice with eggs whites.
  5. Fry in hot oil until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Place on paper towel to drain and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Serve warm.

    My grandma used to make something very similar to this and it was fantastic. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. On that note, she also used to make creamed tuna on toast. Do you have a recipe for that that you could provide me? Thanks in advance!
