Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
French Toast
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 8-10 thick slices of brioche (or other bread - but brioche is the best)
Caramel Topping
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • syrup, powdered sugar and/or fruit, for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Whisk together the milk, eggs, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Dip the bread into the egg yolk mixture and allow to sit for a minute or two, soaking up the egg mixture on both sides.
  2. Spray your pan with non-stick spray or melt a little butter in the pan. Heat over medium-high and when the pan is hot, add in the soaked bread. Cook on one side for about 3 minutes or so, until golden, then flip and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes or so, pressing down on the bread with your spatula a bit so it cooks through. When cooked, place all of the French toast on a lined baking sheet.
  3. Mix together the butter, brown sugar, and extra cinnamon. Brush the tops of the French toast with the butter mixture (don't be afraid to generously coat the bread with it). Place the pan with the coated toast in the oven and bake for 2-3 minutes, until bubbling and caramelized. Remove from the oven and serve with powdered sugar, syrup, and/or fruit.
