    The earliest known reference to French toast is in the Apicius, a collection of Latin recipes dating to the 4th or 5th century; the recipe mentions soaking in milk, but not egg, and gives it no special name, just aliter dulcia"another sweet dish".[4] There is a 14th-century German recipe under the name "Arme Ritter" "poor knights",[5] a name also used in the Scandinavian languages.

    In the 14th century, Taillevent presents a recipe for "tostées dorées".[6]

    There are 15th-century English recipes for "pain perdu"[7] (French for "lost [or wasted] bread", suggesting that the dish is a use for bread which has gone stale).

    Various versions of French toast under a variety of names—"suppe dorate", "soupys yn dorye", etc.—were prepared throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. They were sometimes served with game birds.[8] An Austrian and Bavarian term is "Pavese", perhaps related to a kind of wooden shield or to zuppa pavese, both referring to Pavia, Italy.
