Brioche French Toast For Breakfast
Star of the sweet breakfast or brunch table – French Toast. The main ingredient here is bread and it should be chosen wisely. Buttery, sweet white breads suit this recipe the best, therefore brioche is the perfect choice here. Great thing about this recipe is that it’s so easily made. Bread slices are toasted slightly then dipped in an egg mixture and cooked until golden brown. Once you learn how to make it, you can experiment with various different flavours. I’m sure that every kitchen will benefit from a delicious french toast recipe.
It’s up to you how to build up your French Toast. You can serve it with mascarpone and some caramelised bananas, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or add chocolate between two cooked french toast slices to create pools of warm chocolate sauce.

Mix egg with milk, sweetener, vanilla, salt, cinnamon. Melt butter in a large pan.
