I know I’m on a bit of a breakfast kick with my posts lately! We had Classic French toast this morning per my husband’s request!
He had been gone for work this last week and today was the first morning we have been able to spend together in a few days. I rolled over in bed and asked what he wanted for breakfast and this is what he asked for!
My absolute favorite bread to use for making French toast is from Trader Joe’s (click here) its a pre sliced French Brioche! Makes it so easy! This bread is so rich in eggs and butter. It’s amazing on its own, and I think my husband thinks I’m some sort of rock star when I whip together French toast using this bread lol.
I just lightly drench the bread in cream, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla and toast both sides over a skillet with butter. So simple, so easy and it’s always a high reward breakfast! Top with butter, whip cream, fresh fruits, chocolates, anything!! You simply cannot go wrong.
Thank you for reading!!
- 6 slices of brioche - 4 eggs - 1 1/3 cup heavy cream - 1 tsp vanilla - 1 tbs cinnamon - 2 tbs sugar - 4 tbs butter - powdered sugar for garnish - maple syrup for serving
In a medium bowl beat the cream together with the eggs until well combined. Add vanilla, cinnamon and sugar then stir together. Grease a skillet liberally with butter and one by one, drench eat slice of toast in the cream mixture. Make sure to evenly coat and slightly submerge the bread into the cream so that it soaks into the center. Drop off the excess cream before adding to skillet. Cook over butter for 1-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side.
