Brioche Perdu is a popular recipe in every French household that’s known around the world as “French toast”, a dish made of bread soaked in eggs and milk, then stirred in a pan.
Breakfast is an essential part of the day for the body, and one that is too often overlooked. It is, however, a fun opportunity for a spot of indulgence that we all love, especially brunch (a contraction of breakfast & lunch), which has become a popular fixture in many cities.
Fluffy and tender on the inside, gloriously browned on the outside Brioche perdu is arguably one of the most indulgent breakfast dishes there is.
French toast comes out best if you work with thick slices of French or Italian loaf bread that are several days old and for an extra indulgent twist, we recommend adding a cappuccino prepared using the De’Longhi espresso grinder for the ultimate delicious treat.
Make thick slices of your leftover brioche or bread
Quickly soak the slices in a cappuccino
Heat a frying pan and coat it with granulated sugar
Place the soaked bread slices in the pan
Leave them to brown and then flip them over
Sprinkle them with a little sugar or grated coconut for that extra touch of indulgence
Serve and personalise your bread with your favourite extras, such as fresh or dried fruit.
We recommend a fruity gourmand coffee, so ask your coffee roaster for a coffee from Colombia, for example and use the De’Longhi espresso grinder.
