Fancy a blissful breakfast in bed this weekend?
Here's a simple and deliciously fluffy brioche french toast recipe, mixing sweet vanilla flavours with a mix of tangy wild berries...
Brioche French Toast with Berries
I N G R E D I E N T S
4 slices of brioche
100 ml of semi skimmed milk
2 eggs, beaten
100 g of mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
2 tbp caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sunflower oil or any other oil you prefer
Icing sugar for dusting
M E T H O D
Put the berries inside a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar, leave to macerate for 30 minutes.
Cover the center of each slice of brioche with a mond of macerated fruits, leaving a border around each slice.
Cover with the other 2 slices and press with your hands to flatten the toasts. Keep the fruit juices in the bottom of the bowl for later.
Put a bit of oil inside a frying pan, not much, enough to slightly cover the bottom of the pan and take to the heat.
Mix the milk with the vanilla and dip the toasts into the milk, both sides, pressing to remove the excess, then dip them into the beaten eggs and fry on both sides until golden, which takes just a couples of minutes.
Place the toast on top of kitchen paper to drain the oil.
Cut each toast in half, dust with icing sugar and serve with greek yogurt drizzled with the fruit juices and berries to taste.
