  • 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.


  • Use stale bread- This is really important to getting great french toast. Fresh bread is too soft and gets soggy when dipped, so use stale brioche, or bake it a little to dry it out.
  • Cook directly after dipping- Because bread can get soggy and break down, cook the french toast right after dipping it so it doesn't break or get mushy.
  • Preheat your pan- Heat the skillet and melt the butter before you add your french toast. This will help it cook faster and get a little crust, rather than be limp and floppy.
