Print Recipe
Servings 6


  • 6 The Farmer's Hen large eggs
  • 1/2 cip heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp flaked sea salt
  • 6 ¾-inch-thick brioche bread
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, divided, plus more for serving
  • Pure maple syrup, fresh berries, or powdered sugar (for serving)


  • Preheat oven to 250°F.
  • Lightly beat eggs, cream, milk, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in a large shallow bowl. Dip the bread into the custard, turn to coat, then press down gently on bread until you feel it start to soak up custard mixture – let the bread sit to soak while the skillet comes to temperature.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once the butter is melted, carefully lift 3 slices of bread from custard, letting excess drip back into the bowl, and cook in skillet until golden brown and center of toast springs back when pressed, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer toast to a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet and keep warm in oven while you cook remaining slices of bread with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Serve French toast with butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, and/or powdered sugar.
