One loaf of Brioche in 8 slices (between 1/2 – 1 inch thick)
4 tbsp. heavy whipping cream (or whole milk if you don’t have)
1 tsp. vanilla extract (or add 1/4 tsp. almond extract for a different flavor)
2 tbsp. brown sugar
pinch of salt
butter for pan
Whisk all of the ingredients in a large bowl (aside from the bread of course!) until smooth. Set aside.
Place a pat of butter in a skillet over medium low heat. Once it has all melted, go ahead and dip one slice of bread in the egg mixture. Make sure it is completely coated in the mixture, let the excess drip and add it to the pan. Add as many slices as fit in the pan without touching.
Let them cook about 3-4 minutes on each side or until slightly golden brown. If it is not browning, raise your heat just a tad. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
Serve with berries and powdered sugar or with maple syrup or whipped cream and hot chocolate. Enjoy!
