Brioche French Toast with Warm Berries

With it's French origins, this french toast makes for a perfect breakfast or dessert dish. I like to use fresh berries in all of my dishes. This ensures proper flavor and texture and because I always have fresh fruit and veggies stocked in the fridge, anyway.

Brioche French Toast with Warm Berries
Serves: 4

8 slices of a brioche bread loaf
8 eggs
2 Tbsp milk or water
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup fresh berries (blueberries and raspberries)
Powdered sugar for garnish
Butter for frying

Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add vanilla. Continue to boil until reduced a bit and a thin syrup develops, about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Whisk together eggs, cinnamon and milk or water in a shallow bowl or baking dish. Soak each slice of bread in egg mixture. You may need to flip bread slice over in the egg mixture to make sure it is evenly coated.

Add bread to pan and cook until golden, turning once, about 7-8 minutes. Top with the berries and syrup mixture and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
