- 4 thick slices of brioche or French bread
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- Butter, for cooking
- Maple syrup, fresh berries, or powdered sugar for topping (optional)
- Prepare the Bread: Start by slicing your brioche or French bread into thick slices. If the bread is fresh, it’s even better. Day-old bread works great for absorbing the egg mixture.
- Create the Egg Mixture: In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Ensure that the mixture is well combined.
- Soak the Bread: Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, making sure both sides are well-coated. Allow the bread to soak for about 20-30 seconds on each side, ensuring it absorbs the delicious flavors.
- Cooking Time: Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a pat of butter. Once the butter is melted and the pan is hot, place the soaked bread slices on it. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
- Serve and Enjoy: Transfer the French Toast to a plate, and if desired, top it with maple syrup, fresh berries, or a dusting of powdered sugar. The choices are endless!
- Optional Enhancements:
- For a touch of luxury, add a dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
- Experiment with different bread types like challah or baguette for unique textures.
