Equipment

  • Shallow dish
  • Fork/whisk
  • Frying pan
  • Metal spatula

Ingredients
  

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Cinnamon powder
  • 8 Slices Brioche bread

To serve

  • Fresh fruits
  • Whipped cream
  • Maple syrup

Instructions
 

  • Whisk eggs and add milk. Add vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Whisk until combined.
  • Add your sliced bread into the eg custard mixture. Let it soak for 30-45 seconds on each side depending on how stale and thick the bread is.
  • In a frying pan on medium heat add a tablespoon of butter and a little oil. Heat until sizzling.
  • Add the soaked read into the pan. Cover with a lid and cook for a minute. Sprinkle the top with sugar and flip the bread over.
  • Cook without the lid for 1-2 minutes until the sugar has caramelized. Sprinkle sugar on the other side and repeat.
  • Once cooked through remove from the heat and let the sugar set on the French toast before serving.
  • Serve with honey, whipped cream and fresh fruit.

Notes

  • The cooking time will depend on how thick your bread is. If you poke a knife into the center of the French toast it should come out with moist crumbs or clean. If it comes out wet then the inside isn’t cooked yet.
  • Make sure to keep an eye on the heat as sugar can burn easily and you want a caramelized top not a burnt one. So my recommendation is to keep the flame on low to medium heat at all times.
