Brioche French Toast
This thick, fluffy, and buttery brioche French toast is the ultimate way to enjoy a stack of homemade french toast. And the best part, it's so easy to make!
In a large bowl, whisk together 1 1/4 cups milk, 2 large eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 tbsp granulated sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1 pinch of salt. You can use a whisk or a hand mixer for this step.
Now slice up your brioche bread into 1 inch thick slices and dip both sides into the egg mixture. If your brioche bread is fresh, don’t dip for long. Just dip in and out really fast.
Now heat 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a skillet over medium heat. Then fry your dredged brioche slices on both sides until golden brown.
Serve the brioche French toast with some whipped cream, berries, maple syrup, or Chantilly cream.
How to stale bread for french toast
Generally, you want your bread to be slightly stale when making french toast. If your bread is too fresh it will get really soggy after you dip it into the custard. So in order to get it to be stale, place the sliced brioche bread on a baking sheet in the oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-7 minutes.
