Crème Brulee French Toast

If calorie counting is not your deal or if you have a large group of teenagers who spent the entire night watching TV way too loud, then this is a crowd pleasing breakfast is what you need. Not only is it so easy to make an engineer could do it, it’s so good that even the most finicky teenage girls devour it. If you’re a Keto counting carb avoider move on to another breakfast recipe….this is not the breakfast you’re looking for.


Mise en Place
  • 5 eggs
  • 8 oz milk (223 g)
  • 4 oz heavy cream (119 g)
  • 4 oz butter – 1 stick – melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (167 g)
  • 2 oz maple syrup (73 g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (3.5 g) – powder is best
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (3 g)
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (1.2 g)
  • 1 loaf of Challah bread sliced 1″ thick
  • Powdered sugar – to dust toast


  1. Mise en Place: measure out each ingredient.
  2. Whisk melted butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup together.
  3. Pour mix into baking dish and spread to even layer. I like to use a piece of parchment paper so that after the toast bakes the melted sugar doesn’t stick to the pan.
  4. Arrange bread on top of sugar mix.
  5. Whisk eggs with milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and pinch of salt.
  6. Pour over the bread trying to get an even soak.
  7. Cover with film and put in frig a minimum of 1hour – over night is best. You can work on it while the teenagers are screaming through whatever stupid horror show they’re watching.
  1. Preheat oven to 375 deg. F. at least 1/2 hour before baking
  2. Bake 25 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven. While still hot, flip the toast onto plates so the caramelized side is up.
  4. Dust with powdered sugar.
