Brioche French Toast

June 3, 2013

Breakfast Fete

Breakfast Fete’s definitely originated in the Caribbean.  It is basically celebrating the morning by eating wonderful food for breakfast rather than cheap cereal.  In the Caribbean islanders are known for having  amazing breakfasts.  Plantain, dumplings, exotic porridge and chicken.  You name it, they live the good life.  In England I stick to these principles and ensure that I provide lovely breakfasts often so the day can be started with a smile.  I made some lovely French toast out of brioche bread using cinnamon and nutmeg to spice up the luxurious fluffy goodness.

This recipe was adapted from Good Housekeeping Magazine (July, 2013).



2 medium eggs, 150ml milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp caster sugar, butter, thick slices of brioche, cinnamon, nutmeg, strawberries, lemon juice, icing sugar.


1. Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and caster sugar together.
2. Add a tsp of cinnamon and nutmeg into the mixture.
3. Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan.
4. Dip the brioche into the mixture and place into the frying pan.
5. At a medium heat cook the brioche on both sides for 2 minutes.
6. Transfer the brioche to a plate and serve with chopped fresh strawberries.
7. Drizzle over a tsp of lemon juice and scatter a tsp of icing sugar to taste.
