Ingredients

  • 8 slices brioche bread (cut 3/4-inch - 1-inch thick) -- sub with any bread if desired
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, or superfine/caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Butter for griddle
  • Jam, jelly, butter, maple syrup or honey, to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat a non-stick pan or skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Whisk eggs in a large, shallow dish. Add the milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon; whisk well to combine.
  • Lightly grease pan with a little butter or cooking oil, spreading evenly over the surface with a spatula.
  • Working quickly, dip one slice of bread into the egg wash, allow to soak for 2-3 seconds; flip and dip the other side, soaking again for a further 2-3 seconds.
  • Fry until golden browned on underside, (about 3 minutes), then flip and cook until golden browned, (about another 3-4 minutes). You can cook 2 toasts at a time, depending on the size of your pan.
  • Repeat with remaining bread slices.
  • Serve warm with desired toppings.
