Thick slices of brioche with a custard-like center.
Course Breakfast
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 4 slices


  • 4 slices brioche, each cut 1.5" thick
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk or cream is great too
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • berries or any fruit
  • maple syrup
  • confectioners sugar


  • In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and salt
  • Transfer mixture to a shallow container, like a serving plate.
  • Place the slices of brioche in the mixture and let soak for 3 minutes.
  • Flip the slices of brioche and let the other side soak for 3 minutes.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat and add 1/2 tbsp of butter.
  • Lift each slice of bread and let any excess egg mixture drip off before frying in the pan.
  • Fry the slices until golden brown. Should approximately take about 3-5 minutes per side, but check before flipping to see that it's slightly crisp and golden brown. Add remaining butter to pan and swirl in between the slices of bread before flipping.
  • Plate the French toast and top with your favorite fruit, maple syrup, and confectioners sugar.
