- The amount of egg mixture absorbed when making French toast depends upon the bread being used. Soft bread with an open, porous texture will absorb more liquid and absorb it more quickly than drier bread with a fine texture. Once you’ve dipped the first one or two slices, you can determine how long to keep the bread in the egg mixture, so you don't run out of the egg mixture.
