This Crème Brûlée French Toast is light and fluffy with a crunchy sugar coating reminiscent of the popular French dessert. The tasty breakfast is sure to be a hit when served with maple syrup and fresh berries!
I don't know about you, but breakfast is my jam! Waffles, pancakes, french toast, CEREAL (I'm obsessed with cold cereal, it's kind of pathetic really). But breakfast foods, I could eat them for, well...breakfast obviously, but lunch, dinner, and a snack. I'll even eat a bowl of cereal before bed! Who's with me?
Today's recipe brings together the best of two worlds: breakfast AND dessert! AKA Crème Brûlée French Toast. Now the thought of dessert for breakfast either got you really excited or you're shaking your head in disgust. If you're feeling the latter, I think I can change your mind. I hope so anyway! Because this is one recipe you don't want to miss out on!
I know it sounds absolutely crazy, but this french toast is seriously life-changing. Especially if you're a crème brûlée fan, then you'll really appreciate it. I mean, this French toast is made up of thick slices of French bread (or if you're feeling really ambitious homemade brioche bread) dipped in a rich heavy cream batter, pan-fried to golden perfection, coated with sugar that's then crystallized with a kitchen torch to make that iconic crunchy creme brûlée coating, and then topped with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup. What's not to love?! Have I got your mouth watering yet?
Fry up some bacon and pour yourself a glass of orange juice to go along with your stack of Crème Brûlée French Toast and you'll have one mighty fine breakfast.
