Brioche French Toast

8 French Toast
25 min

Who doesn't love a good french toast in the morning? This brioche french toast is so easy to make and tastes amazing! My fiancé and I have been making this french toast recipe for a few weeks now and we just can't get enough. The brioche gives it a richer and deeper flavor then just using normal bread. You can find brioche at your local grocery store. I usually find mine at Target of all places. It comes in pre sliced loaves and sometimes you can find it unsliced. Then you can cut your french toast as thick or thin as you like. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 T Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 c Whole Milk
  • Brioche Bread Sliced
Instructions

In a small/medium size bowl mix together the milk, vanilla, egg, sugar, and cinnamon and set it aside.
Spray your pan with pan spray. Warm the pan up on a medium heat on your stove.
Take one slice of the brioche bread and lay it face down in the custard bowl. You're just getting the bread coated. You don't want to soak it. That will make your french toast really soggy.
Then flip the bread over to coat the other side.
With the edges of the bread facing up hold the bread over the bowl and let any excess custard drip back into the bowl.
Place your piece of french toast in the warm pan and let it cook until its golden brown.
Now this next step is important. Do not smash down your french toast. You want to have nice tall edges.
When you go to flip your french toast it will be a little stuck. With your fingers gently lift the edge of the french toast and gently slide your spatula back and fourth under the french toast to loosen it. Then flip the toast. If you're not gentle you will smash your french toast and it won't be as pretty.
Cook the remaining side until golden brown and then move the french toast to a plate while you finish the rest.
Depending on how large your pan is you can make multiple french toast at one time.
I like to top mine with a little powdered sugar and syrup!
