I’ve been making this Easy French Toast since I took an after-school cooking class in second or third grade {wish my mom was here to answer these little questions}. It’s easy enough a kid can make it, but delicious enough to serve guests for a beautiful brunch.

The Easy French Toast Recipe includes all of the basics – eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla, but it’s the bread that takes it to a whole new level!  Brioche is light and fluffy, allowing it to soak up the rich custard mix. Fortunately, French brioche is easily accessible at most grocery stores, Target and Walmart! I purchase pre-sliced to keep this recipe quick and simple.

Brioche creates a slightly thicker French Toast that’s moist in the center, but perfectly toasted on the outside – the best combination!

Last weekend I shared my brioche tip on Instagram stories which resulted in several requests for my French Toast recipe. We frequently make it for breakfast at home and brunch when entertaining guests. I can make an entire loaf of Easy French Toast from start to finish in just 10 minutes! 

I like to use a little butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and fruit to garnish, but powdered sugar is also a delicious option! If you want a little fall twist, substitute salted caramel for maple syrup – you won’t be disappointed!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 loaf brioche 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1+ tablespoon butter*

Instructions
 

  • Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar together in a shallow bowl that will accommodate a slice of bread.
  • Warm a thin slice of butter in a skillet over medium low heat and swirl to cover the skillet.
  • Using a fork, quickly dip a slice of brioche, flip and place on warm skillet.
  • Check in about 30 seconds to see if it’s golden brown. Flip and cook until golden brown.

Notes

I like to quickly dip and flip bread in the custard mix which keeps it from getting soggy or difficult to work with. 
Each time you add toast to the pan, lightly coat with butter.
I like to use a little butter, a drizzle of maple syrup and fruit to garnish, but powdered sugar is also a delicious option! If you want a little fall twist, substitute salted caramel for maple syrup – you won’t be disappointed!
