Cuisine American
Servings 4


  • 8 slices of Texas toast
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Additional granulated sugar for caramelizing
  • Fresh berries
  • Maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar optional


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, whole milk, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until frothy.
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • Slowly dip each slice of Texas toast into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides thoroughly. The liquid needs a second to soak into the toast. Allow any excess mixture to drip off.
  • Place the dipped Texas toast slices onto the skillet or griddle and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining slices, adding more butter as needed.
  • Transfer the cooked French toast slices to a baking dish or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Preheat your oven's broiler to high heat. Place oven shelf 6 to 8 inches from top.
  • Sprinkle or sift a thin, even layer of granulated sugar over each slice of Texas toast.
  • Place the baking dish or baking sheet with the French toast slices under the broiler and watch closely until the sugar melts and caramelizes to a golden brown color. This should take about 1-2 minutes, but keep a close eye on it to prevent burning.
  • Once caramelized, remove the French toast slices from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
  • Serve the Crème Brûlée French Toast warm, topped with fresh berries, maple syrup, and a dusting of powdered sugar if desired.


We may do our recipe slightly different with equipment the home cook doesn't have in their kitchen, but the results are the same.
