Waffled Brioche French Toast

Author Izy


  • oil for the waffle iron
  • 4 thick (~3 cm) slices of brioche or white bread
  • 1 egg or 1 flax egg (see notes)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup 125 ml milk, any kind

To coat:

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter or coconut oil , melted
  • 1/3 cup 60 g caster (superfine) sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Turn on your waffle maker to pre-heat. Spray or brush the inside with some oil.
  • In a wide, shallow dish place the egg, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. Whisk together well then pour in the milk and whisk in. Dip a slice of brioche into this batter, turning to coat, then place into the waffle iron. Repeat with another slice of brioche then close the waffle iron and leave to cook until golden brown (this took 4 minutes for me in the Cuisinart waffle maker). Remove the cooked French toast to a plate and repeat coating/cooking with the other 2 slices of bread.
  • Prepare the coating: In a shallow bowl combine the caster sugar and ground cinnamon.
  • Brush the slices of cooked French toast with melted butter/coconut oil and coat in the cinnamon sugar.
