Cinnamon-Swirl French Toast

The only logical thing to do with an aging loaf of cinnamon-swirl brioche is to make French toast. So we did, on Easter morning.

I’m not one to follow recipes for things like French toast – didn’t everyone grow up helping parents make this? – so I just whisked 2 eggs with a few splashes of cream, orange juice, pinch of salt, pinch of nutmeg and a pinch of cinnamon. I dipped thick slices of bread into the batter and then fried in butter until browned.

I topped it with a little powdered sugar and real maple syrup. Enjoyed in the garden with some fresh fruit and a cup of coffee – fabulous!

Hope everyone had a delicious Easter. xoxo
