Caramelized Custard French Toast
I have been on the hunt, and test, for THE BEST french toast ever. And I have to say this Custard French Toast with caramelized cinnamon sugar is the best I have ever made. And maybe the best I have ever eaten!
What you need:
Make the Custard
Whisk together the egg yolks, cream, and half and half with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar in it.
Soak the bread
Dip the brioche into the custard and allow it to soak for 10-15 seconds per side. Just long enough to allow the bread to soften but not fall apart.
Cooking the french toast
In a hot pan, melt a pat of butter and then place the soaked bread in the pan, dusting the top side with cinnamon sugar while side one cooks
Flip and Repeat
Turn the toast over and dust the cooked side with cinnamon sugar, turn it one more time to caramelize the sugar on both sides.
Serve topped with butter and warm maple syrup
