  • Yield: 6 slices of French Toast 1x


This French Toast is cooked low & slow in clarified butter, which makes for a crispy exterior and custardy interior. The most perfect addition to Breakfast or Brunch.



  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • clarified butter


  1. Combine eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, sugar & vanilla into a dish and mix to form a custard.
  2. Preheat a skillet with clarified butter over a low flame.
  3. Dip the brioche slices into the custard and let the bread soak some of it up until it feels spongey (about 10 seconds per side).
  4. Let excess custard drip off of the bread, and place into the preheated skillet. Cook for 7 & 1/2 minutes per side. Don’t touch it while its cooking! Just flip once after 7 & 1/2 minutes.
  5. Remove french toast from the skillet after 15 minutes and serve with your favorite toppings.

  • If you do not have clarified butter, you can use regular butter with a touch of olive oil. Leave heat on a low flame to avoid burning.
