The indulgent delights of Brioche Perdu

Ingredients

  • An espresso, ideally a specialty coffee with a strong identity
  • Milk
  •  Leftover brioche or stale bread
  • Granulated sugar

Before you start

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.

What is brioche perdu?

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.

Our espresso of choice

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.

Recommended machine settings:
Quantity of coffee: 5/5
Grinding: 3
Espresso volume: 100 ml

Method

French toast is a great breakfast, but also a fun brunch menu option as it is both delicious and super easy to make.

Step 1: Make thick slices of your leftover brioche or bread
Step 2: Quickly soak the slices in a cappuccino
Step 3: Heat a frying pan and coat it with granulated sugar
Step 4: Place the soaked bread slices in the pan
Step 5: Leave them to brown and then flip them over
Step 6: Sprinkle them with a little sugar or grated coconut for that extra touch of indulgence
Step 7: Serve and personalise your bread with your favourite extras, such as fresh or dried fruit.
