Springtime Brunch :: Brioche French Toast

Brioche french Toast, stuffed with Marscapone and Marmalade

For batter:
1 cup crème fraiche or sour cream
2 cups milk
6 eggs
1 oz brandy or…
2 TSP vanilla
½ cup sugar
2 tsp salt
Orange or lemon zest
Nutmeg

For toast:
6 slices bread 1” thick, with pocket cut from small hole on one side
6 oz mascarpone
8 oz marmalade

Combine all ingredients and whisk together until well-combined.

With jam and cheese in piping bags, fill each piece of bread, being careful to not over-fill, and keeping the ingredients within the pocket and away from the opening.

Dip each slice in batter and allow to soak thoroughly, then drain well.
On a hot griddle, begin by searing the opening, ensuring that it has cooked shut before continuing to cook until golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately.

    looks so good!!! sad for me since i am gluten-free for 4 months (thank you wonderful homeopath and all for a good cause) and somehow i don’t think it’s the same with rice bread……but saving for when i return to the land of wheat

    Simply divine! Beautiful shots. Those loaves of bread remind of bakeries in Japan. Thick, square & fluffy! Delicious.

    I am delighted to see that someone is also making French Toast with brioche.. it’s simply the best.

    And the filling is something completely new to me, so I am thrilled with this new recipe !!

    It looks absolutely delish and the pictures are stunning.

    I can’t find a good brioche loaf in my neighborhood. Any tips on a fantastic recipe? (Let’s face it, the bread makes the recipe!) Merci!

  27. Simply Luxurious says: June 20, 20106:31 am

    I am so excited to try this recipe. I have made brioche rolls, but never French toast and have a feeling this will go over very well with any guests I have over for brunch. Thank you.

    On a different note, the blog/website/business is beautiful. I hope someday soon I can be part of one of your cooking experiences in Brooklyn. I have included this particular post on my weekly Cups of Tea (Sunday, June 20th) as well as a description of your business. I know my readers will love what you have to offer if they haven’t found you already. Thank you for such beauty, ideas and creativity. Have a lovely day. =)
