Happy Sunday, all! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend with family and friends. I wanted to share my Sunday brunch meal from last weekend! I made this Churro French Toast for my boyfriend and we loved it! I combined some recipes I found on Pinterest to make this super easy recipe for you all! Feel free to follow mine below or create your own twist on a classic recipe that your family will love.
What I love about this recipe is that it contains ingredients that the home chef or avid baker would have on hand. You can easily spice things up by throwing in holiday spice mixes into the cinnamon sugar mixture. You can flavor your glaze with almond, orange, or even peppermint for Christmas morning!
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of nutmeg
1 French baguette (or your favorite brioche, sliced Italian bread, etc.)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (for the pan)
For the glaze:
2 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons of milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the cinnamon sugar:
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- If necessary, slice your bread. I sliced my baguette into about 1 1/2 inch slices so they wouldn’t get too soggy in the mixture. This recipe can easily be adapted for a larger group or with whatever bread you have on hand!
- Combine your cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk, and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside for later.
- Create your cinnamon sugar mixture by mixing together your granulated sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour the mixture into a shallow plate or pie dish and set near your cook-top surface.
- In a large bowl, whisk together your eggs, milk, vanilla, and nutmeg.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Working with a few slices at a time, dip the bread into the egg mixture and then quickly add to the skillet. If necessary, you can increase the heat slightly at the beginning if your pan is not hot enough.Cook the bread approximately 1-2 minutes on each side or until evenly brown.
- Quickly remove the finished slices from the pan and coat them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. If necessary, you can use a spoon to scoop the mixture over the bread.
- Prepare your plates with two slices of french toast, drizzled with the cream cheese glaze. For an extra sugary kick, put out maple syrup and confectioners’ sugar for those who want to add either (or both).
- Serve immediately to your hungry friends and family who have gathered around the kitchen as a result of the delicious scent of your cooking.
I hope you will enjoy this fun recipe soon with your loved ones! I wish everyone a wonderful holiday week and hope you have many exciting things planned!
