Ingredients

FOR THE FRENCH TOAST:

  • 18 slices brioche
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • coconut oil spray for griddle

FOR SERVING (OPTIONAL):

  • salted butter
  • real maple syrup
  • toasted almonds
  • powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Wipe or spray your griddle with coconut oil and preheat to 325° to 350°. The temperature will depend on the griddle.
  • Meanwhile, use a whisk to beat the eggs with vanilla, ground cardamom and nutmeg.
  • Pour in the whole milk and gently whisk to combine.
  • Dip both sides of each slice of bread into the custard and place onto a wire rack set into a rimmed metal sheet pan and repeat with the remaining slices of bread. *You will have to keep whisking here and there in between bread dipping because the cardamom and nutmeg tends to settle in the bottom of the dish.
  • Working in batches, place the dipped bread onto your preheated griddle and cook for 3 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.
  • Flip and continue to cook for 1 to 2 more minutes. Repeat with remaining pieces. Keep the French toast warm on a rimmed metal baking sheet in a 200° oven.
  • Serve with butter, real maple syrup, toasted almonds and powdered sugar.
