This Kneaders French Toast and Caramel Syrup Copycat Recipe is spot on! The French Toast is topped with rich, creamy syrup and fresh strawberries and cream.
Kneaders French Toast and Caramel Syrup
I can barely even call this “our” version of Kneaders French Toast. I just simplified the process and added a little vanilla to the syrup. However, I had to post it because it has become an all time favorite breakfast around here. If you don’t have a Kneaders nearby you have to try this recipe!
What is So Special About this French Toast?
If you haven’t had Kneaders French Toast, you haven’t really had french toast! Every element is unbelievably delicious! The thick, cinnamon swirl bread makes the perfect, fluffy base. The batter is full of cinnamon and vanilla flavor. Last, but most certainly not least, the rich, creamy, caramel syrup drizzled over the top. Add the classic Kneaders strawberries and whipped cream on top and you have a truly unforgettable breakfast!
How to Make Caramel Syrup
This caramel syrup recipe is my absolute favorite!! I put it on EVERYTHING! Pancakes, waffles, bacon, a spoon….. 😉 For how delicious this syrup is, you won’t believe how easy it is to make! All you have to do is combine the ingredients in a saucepan and stir until the sugar is dissolved! Make sure you don’t have the burner on too high and that you are stirring often, otherwise the bottom can burn.

Love this french toast! It is amazing with the caramel syrup! I can think of so many things to use the syrup on also.
I love french toast! This is a perfect recipe for my favorite breakfast carb! The caramel sauce is AMAZING! Love this! Yum!
Oh my, this is making me so hungry! On the menu for this weekend!!
Do you know how long it stays fresh in the fridge? I’m wanting to make it for Christmas neighbor gifts.
The syrup should stay good in the fridge for at least a week! It may separate, but when you heat and stir it, it should recombine easily.
I’m glad you posted this recipe. Kneaders no longer serves this syrup. Now they just serve caramel sauce like what is put on ice cream. It’s a terrible match. They are buying back their franchises and this looks like a “bean counter’s” attempt at cutting costs. Big mistake!
Oh yikes- I haven’t noticed they were doing this (mostly because we just make this recipe at home now). Hopefully they will go back to the right way of making it! Thanks so much for the 5-stars and the kind comment!
Is there a particular brand or type of cinnamon bread you’re using?
We get ours straight from Kneaders! But, you can use any brand!
