Crème Brûlée French toast

Crème Brûlée French toast is a decadent and indulgent dessert that combines two classic dishes into one rich and satisfying treat. This dish features slices of thick, buttery brioche bread that are soaked in a custard mixture of eggs, cream, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. The soaked bread is then cooked in a buttered skillet until golden brown and crispy on the outside, and soft and custardy on the inside. The French toast is then topped with a generous layer of caramelised sugar that has been torched to create a crispy, crackly sugar crust.
Each bite is a delightful mix of textures and flavors, with the sweet, caramelised sugar crust adding the perfect finishing touch.
