Churro French toast is a fun twist on a brunch classic. Rich brioche French toast is coated in cinnamon sugar, reminiscint of the Spanish treat.

I'm definitely a "sweet" kind of girl when it comes to brunch options. I almost always go for pancakes or French toast rather than eggs in any form. Even at a coffee shop, I'll go for a pastry over a breakfast sandwich.
I love one local brunch place because their menu changes with the season, and each time I go, they have something different. One summer, I got thick slices of French toast covered in fresh mango and blackberries, topped with coconut whipped cream. Delicious!
This fun French toast recipe is not much more difficult than regular French toast. After cooking the French toast, there's just one extra step — coating the slices in cinnamon sugar.
You can serve this French toast with the traditional churro dipping sauce of dulce de leche, or with maple syrup or "flat icing," which is the confectioners sugar-based icing that goes on cinnamon rolls
Another great thing about French toast is that leftovers freeze really well! I always make more than I think I'll need, so that I'll have leftover effortless French toast for breakfast on another day.
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- Kosher salt
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 8 slices brioche bread, stale
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and salt.
- In a smaller bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Preheat an electric griddle to 300 degrees (or set a stovetop griddle pan over medium heat). Spray with nonstick spray.
- Place a slice of brioche bread in the egg mixture and let sit for 10 seconds, then flip, and let sit another 10 seconds, then place on the griddle. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
- Cook until golden brown on each side, then immediately transfer to the cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat each side.
- Place two slices on each plate, and serve with maple syrup, dulce de leche or simple icing (confectioners sugar and cream).
