Classic brioche french toast with some coconut twists!
I’ve only recently started making this recipe for weekend breakfast.
It was when we accidentally received a french toast delivery from a local bakery that I realized how amazing it actually is!
We usually just order croissants from this bakery but when a surprising order mixup occurred, it was life changing!
I basically crave french toast all the time now (yes, it’s a problem).
Brioche is a bread of French origin and is golden, it’s soft, and it’s pillowy.
Brioche uses ingredients similar to those found in regular bread, like yeast, flour, butter, and eggs.
But unlike your average sandwich bread, you need lots of eggs and butter to make brioche.
To add more flavor and make it a tad but healthier, I love soaking the brioche in a coconut cream and coconut sugar mixture.
Using coconut sugar keeps the sweetness to a minimum as maple syrup is later added anyway.
A can of full fat coconut cream is magical. It lends itself to all kinds of sweet and savory dishes.
Adding cinnamon is a nice touch but can be easily omitted.
I always top my french toast with fresh berries. It adds brightness and a fresh bite to a very decadent breakfast.
Video recipe quantities are for two french toast slices, 1 serving.
Soak The Brioche Slices
In a bowl, mix together the eggs, coconut cream, coconut sugar, cinnamon, sea salt and vanilla extract/paste.
Cut 4 thick slices of brioche bread and soak them in the liquid mixture on both sides.
Allow the bread slices to soak in the liquid while the skillet is heating up.
Pan Fry The French Toast
Heat up a large skillet and add the avocado oil and butter.
Once the skillet is hot, add the soaked bread slices then immediately lower the heat to medium-low.
Fry two pieces at a time to not overcrowd the skillet.
Flip the bread slices after 3 minutes or golden brown. Fry the second side for 2-3 minutes.
