Servings: 3
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • Skillet


  • 6 slices bread (like Brioche, French bread or Challah)
  • 3 tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 2 tbsp confectioner sugar

Custard batter:

  • 2 pieces eggs (large)
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk (whole fat)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • tsp salt


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 cup blueberries (or other favorite fruits)


  • In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the milk, vanilla, salt and flour. Mix using a whisk or an electric mixer to ensure the flour is fully incorporated.
  • Heat the skillet or a large flat bottom pan over medium heat. Once the surface is hot, spray some vegetable oil before adding the butter. It helps to ensure the butter doesn’t burn. Note: Wipe down the pan after cooking each slice to prevent the last slice bits from adhering to the next.
  • Saturate the bread into the batter, making sure to coat each side nicely. Dip bread one slice at a time.
  • Cook the bread for 2-3 minutes per side or until the surface turned golden brown. Repeat the process with the remaining slices.
  • Serve immediately and garnish with butter, syrup or your favorite fruit toppings.


  • The flour added in the batter creates a thicker coating on the slices hence helps the toast from getting a soggy texture.
  • The bread is the foundation of your French toast, so the secret to the perfect toast lies in using the best bread (like Brioche, French bread or Challah bread.
