I really liked this recipe. Loved using Brioche to make french toast. I used the Brioche recipe on this site for the brioche. My only complaint about this recipe is that the strawberries need some sugar. I suppose it depends on how sweet your berries are, mine were sweet but not enough. And I ended up thickening the berries with about 2 teaspoons of cornstarch. Thanks for the recipe I will be making this again.
I used the brioche recipe on this site to make this french toast. My husband liked it but I thought it was bleh. The strawberry sauce was kind of tart. If I make it again I will add some sugar. The whipped cream wasn't too great but it may have been the heavy creamer I used. I will probably make this again but with some changes.
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! This was easy and delicious. I used the brioche recipe on this site to go with this and it was the best french toast ever!
Delicious! Brioche is the way to go for real French toast, and who can go wrong with strawberries and whipped cream on top?! Also try warm apples and cinnamon!
if your looking to surprise your special someone with a beautiful decadent breakfast in bed try this recipe with the addition of banana's and a little Grand Marnier (to taste in the fruit while it makes its sweet syrup) HEAVEN!
This dish was incredible! I used Challah bread cut thickly. We (2 of us) gobbled down half a loaf! To save calories/fat I sauteed apples in margarine for the topping and omitted the whipped cream. Still decadent and so delicious!
This recipe is AMAZING! My husband said that it is restaurant quality. I made a half batch and it was plenty for the two of us! The brioche is a great change up from regular bread. It is also great with raspberries or maple syrup! Thank you for sharing!!!!
I made brioche yesterday in culinary school and my professor said that it made the best french toast and I had to try it. I found this recipe (didn't use the toppings) and it was amazing. The brioche soaks up so much of the eggs and cream mixture that the final result is almost custardy. I can see why this is the true french bread for french toast! While I have enjoyed challah in the past for this, the enriched eggy butteriness of brioche is perfect.
