  • 1 loaf good quality brioche bread we love Aldi's and Trader Joe's brioche!
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 and 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt


  • Prep: Whisk all ingredients together in a large, shallow bowl. Heat griddle or pan over medium high heat and spray well with cooking spray or use butter to grease. 
  • Cook the French Toast: Working with a few pieces at a time, soak each piece of bread on both sides for about 8 seconds if using the thicker brioche (from Trader Joe's). (yes, I counted haha!). Shorten this if you're using a thinner bread like the Aldi's Brioche or something else entirely. We want the bread to be moistened through but it shouldn't be falling apart from being so wet. 
    Fry on heated and greased griddle/pan until golden brown - flip and repeat. 
  • Serve + Store: Enjoy immediately! Serve with butter, maple syrup, fruit, powdered sugar, or anything else your heart desires. 
    Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in microwave. 


NOTE: Serving size obviously depends on a few things here - amount of slices of bread in the loaf you use, how many slices each person eats, etc. The TJ's bread has 12 slices and I estimated 4 servings (3 slices per person). The good news is that you can absolutely double this recipe if you need to feed a larger group!
