Servings 7 slices


  • Large Shallow Dish
  • Whisk
  • Non-Stick Skillet or Pan
  • Spatula


  • 7 Slices Brioche or French Bread cut 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Cream or Milk I used Silk Brand Dairy-Free Half & Half
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar packed
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • Butter
  • Strawberries, Blueberries, Whipped Cream, Maple Syrup, Confectioners/Icing Sugar etc. to serve


  • In a large shallow dish, add eggs, milk or cream, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and whisk well to combine. Over medium-low heat, preheat a non-stick skillet or pan, then lightly grease with butter or cooking oil, spreading evenly over the surface of the skillet or pan.
  • Dip one slice of bread into the egg mixture, allow to soak for 2-3 seconds then flip and dip the other side, soaking again for another 2-3 seconds (do not completely drench the bread).
  • Place slice of bread into the skillet or pan and fry until golden brown — around 2 to 4 minutes, then flip and repeat. Work in batches if needed and do not overcrowd the skillet or pan.
  • Repeat process with remaining bread slices, then remove and allow to rest on a cooling rack. Serve warm with desired toppings - blueberries, strawberries, whipped cream, maple syrup, confectioners sugar etc.


What Milk to Use - feel free to use any milk or cream of your choice. I have made this recipe with a variety (i.e. heavy cream and half & half, whole milk, skim milk, oat, almond, cashew, and soy milk) and they all work with this recipe.
