Brioche French Toast | The Best French Toast!

A rich French toast made with brioche bread…




It is good to be back on this space after a period of 10 days. I like taking such short breaks to feel more freshened up to post on the blog. This month, I decided to do two weeks of the Blogging Marathon, after almost a period of 4 months, delayed thanks to Ramadan and then my leg injury. I am just excited to be back to doing the edition #136 and the theme I chose for this week is “Brighten your Breakfast”. Breakfast, as much as it is considered to be the most important meal of the day, yet many including myself don’t give it the importance it needs, thanks to many reasons I don’t want to even put forward, as they may look more like excuses. Hehe… While trying to figure out the recipes to post, I finalized on using a theme within the theme – toasts. Since bread, despite its bad name, is such an important part of breakfast, I thought, why not? 🙂


In Indian households, French toast is always made with regular bread. When we go to cafes and I see it on the menu, initially I used to never order them. It all changed when I ordered it to see what the hype was. I have to say, it is all in the bread. All cafes make their toast with brioche bread, which is an ultra rich and buttery thick bread. It used to be tough to find them on supermarket aisles, but now Luisine has started these packs of brioche bread, which is perfect for one time for a small family. What a blessing! 😀 It is not only about the bread, but the milk mixture used also tastes very rich. I decided to do a mix of eggs with milk and cream, with simple vanilla flavoring and sugar. Few pointers I figured out as I made these toasts:

  • Since the bread slices are thick, literally dunk them in the mixture as much as you can when the pans were heating. This ensures that the inside of the toast is moist and well soaked.
  • Toast only in butter and on low flame. This avoids the eggy taste.
  • Enjoy them as quickly as they are off the pan. They tend to sink and sulk when it cools. Hehe…

I guess that’s about it. Since it is a very simple set of ingredients, go ahead and make them for your weekend breakfast. Top them with whatever you want – I like them with a simple drizzle of maple syrup.
