Brioche French Toast is one of the easiest breakfast recipes you can make. So today we are making a french toast recipe that is gonna bring brunch to your kitchen this weekend. We use thick cut slices of brioche to make our french toast special. Soak it in custard for about an hour, cook on the stove and then finish in the oven. This is your new french toast recipe.
INGREDIENTS Makes 3 Large French Toasts
3, 1” Slices of Brioche Bread, Dried out
2 Egg yolks
2-3 Tablespoons of Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon, Vanilla Extract
1/2-1 Teaspoon, Cinnamon
1 Cup Half & Half, Milk or Cream (Whatever you have)
1-2 Tablespoons, Butter
Powdered sugar and Maple syrup for Serving
Cut the Brioche bread into 1 inch thick slices.
In a deep pan, with enough room to put your bread in, start the custard. Add the eggs, sugar, milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Whisk that together very well. Then add the bread to the custard.
Soak the bread for a minimum of 20 minutes for bread cut 1 Inch thick. If you don’t let it soak long enough, the center of the bread won’t absorb any custard. After about 20-30 minutes, flip and let the other side soak for the same amount of time. Feel free to soak it up to 1-2 hours, but a minimum of about 40 minutes to an hour. If you wish to cut the bread a little thinner, then you can get away with soaking it for a little less time but I recommend the thick cut slices.
Once the bread is soaked up and weighs about twice as much, it’s ready to cook.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Put an oven-safe pan on medium heat with a tablespoon or two of butter and let them get hot until the butter starts to bubble. If you don’t have an oven-safe pan, get a sheet tray ready and transfer the cooked French toast to the sheet tray before baking them in the oven.
Add the French toast and let them cook on one side for about 2-4 minutes, or until the bread has a nice brown crust on it. Then flip it and cook the other side for another 2 minutes, or until equally browned, then throw it in the oven for about 7-10 minutes. Then they should be ready to eat.
Melt some butter and spread it on each slice of french toast. Sprinkle some powdered sugar, a dash of extra cinnamon and some really good maple syrup and you’re in for one hell of a breakfast.
