Cinnamon Brioche French Toast is what French toast dreams are made of! Tender, buttery slices of brioche bread are dunked into creamy, cinnamon-speckled egg wash, cooked until golden brown and delicious in a skillet of butter and topped to your liking! Breakfast never looked or smelled so good!
Making French Toast at Home:
French Toast is one of those breakfast items that can seem a bit daunting to make at home, but let me put your mind at ease! All you have to do is a few simple steps:
- Whip up the egg wash – this has eggs, half and half, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla whipped into it to make it extra delicious!
- Quickly dunk a slice of the brioche bread into the egg wash before putting it into a skillet with melted butter.
- Cook until the first side is golden brown, then flip! Cook until the other side is golden brown and repeat until all the slices are ready to rock and roll!
See? That’s not too bad! You’ll be a French Toast making star before you know it.
Let’s talk bread:
Using Brioche bread for this recipe is a complete game-changer. It is a bread that is buttery, fluffy and slightly sweet. You can’t go wrong. I found my loaf at Trader Joe’s, but you should be able to find them in the bakery section or a local baker of your choosing. Challah bread would be a close comparison if you can’t find Brioche bread. It really is a must!
Pro tip: since Brioche bread is such a tender and fluffy bread, don’t leave it sitting too long in the egg wash as it soaks it up fast. Speaking from experience – I had to toss a slice because I left it sitting for too long!
Let’s talk toppings:
You really can’t go wrong when topping this Cinnamon Brioche French Toast, but here are some ideas:
- Whipped Cream
- Maple syrup
- Chocolate chips
- Jellies or jams
- Powdered sugar
- Warmed apple pie filling
The possibilites are endless! My personal favorite is a combo of butter, strawberries and maple syrup…and maybe a little whipped cream :).
If I’m being honest, French toast was never usually my first choice because it usually just tasted like fried bread. But this is no fried bread, my friend! I shamelessly stood there and ate fork-fulls of cold Cinnamon Brioche French Toast because it is SO good! It changed my French toast ways!
A scrumptious breakfast, brunch or brinner (breakfast for dinner) will be on the table in no time with this Cinnamon Brioche French Toast!
