I’m really excited to be typing up my first recipe, Chocolate Brioche Baked French Toast, on my brand new cooking site: www.fionacooks.com.
For the last six years I have shared my gluten and dairy free recipes over at www.freefromfavourites.com. While I will continue to post there every week I decided to start this sister site to share the everyday recipes I create.
I’m working on building out this site and adding in a few more recipes over the next week or so please stick with me while it all takes shape. The plan is to share ideas for breakfast, light bites, dinner, baking and other bits and pieces!
My First Recipe
Brioche is a rich French bread which uses more butter and eggs than traditional bread. It still has a light and fluffy texture with a slightly sweet taste. In my humble opinion this makes it the perfect bread for French Toast.
I’ve done a little twist on traditional French Toast and have used chocolate chip brioche and chocolate milk.
Rather than cooking in the pan this version is baked in the oven. I usually put it together, which only takes 5 minutes, and then nip into the shower while it bakes in the oven. Paired with fresh orange juice and a cappuccino makes the perfect start to any day.
If you are after an allergen safe version of this recipe you can always head over to my sister site. I have a great recipe for a baked apple and cinnamon French Toast which is also gluten and dairy free.
