Cinnamon Sugar Brioche Toast

"Buttery cinnamon sugar Brioche toast topped with more butter, jam and berries! So divine! I don’t have an exact recipe for this one. But you simply smear butter on your favorite bread, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and cook in a little more melted butter in a pan until golden on both sides! I will be making these in repeat, and have already tried it with sourdough bread, and it was HEAVEN!!💜 . . . Stekt Brioche bröd i brunt socker, kanel och massa smör! Är som det är eller toppa med mer smör och sylt! Himmelskt gott!"

Brioche Toast Ingredients

Everything you need to make brioche toast.

  • Brioche: Is a rich and tender bread, is the star of this cinnamon sugar brioche toast recipe. If you can't find brioche, challah or thick-cut white bread make great substitutes, offering a similar richness and softness.

Test Kitchen Notes

  • Butter Distribution: Ensure the butter is evenly spread on both sides of the brioche slices. This helps achieve an even golden-brown crust when toasting.

    Skillet Temperature: Maintain medium heat in the skillet. Too high a temperature can cause the butter to burn, while too low will result in soggy toast. Medium heat ensures a crispy, golden finish.

    Even Coating: Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the buttered brioche slices. This prevents clumping and ensures each bite has the perfect balance of sweetness and spice.

    Fruit Pairing: Fresh blueberries and blueberry jam add a refreshing flavor that complements the rich brioche and sweet cinnamon sugar. Experiment with other fruits like strawberries or raspberries for variety.

    Serving Suggestions: Serve the toast warm with additional toppings like whipped cream, fresh fruit, or a dollop of your favorite jam. This adds a delightful variety of textures and flavors to the dish.

    Storage Tips: If you have leftovers, store the cooked toast in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat in a skillet over low heat or in a toaster oven to restore crispiness.
