Classic French Toast

Serves 4 to 6
Time 30 min
French toast is a breakfast classic for good reason and using a rich bread such as brioche or challah makes this variation even more irresistible. Drizzle with honey instead of maple syrup, if you like.

Method

Preheat oven to 200°F.

In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Working with 4 or 5 slices at a time, dip brioche in egg mixture, turning to coat thoroughly, then gently shake free of any excess.

Arrange brioche in skillet in a single layer and cook, flipping once, until deep golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Transfer to a large baking sheet when done and keep warm in the oven.

Repeat with remaining butter, brioche and egg mixture.

Transfer French toast to plates, top with syrup and berries, and serve.
