Red velvet treats have been making their mark in the #urbanfood scene everywhere. Whether it be in form of cakes, cupcakes, pancakes, waffles, churros or French toast, red velvet has earned its popularity! I created this red velvet French toast with brioche bread keeping in mind the new trend. The ones I have had at popular breakfast cafes are made with red velvet cake breads and I find them a tad sweet and heavy. I wanted to create a toast which was going to hold up the delicious custard and have a balanced sweetness as well. Brioche bread is perfect because its hearty enough to soak all the custard and still has a bite to it in the center. 

Red velvet and cream cheese frosting are a match made in heaven but I jazzed things up a bit and used a sweet marscapone cheese frosting instead. You will be pleasantly surprised with this new twist on a classic.

The recipe is pretty straightforward with the addition of coco and red food coloring and brown sugar for that perfect crust on the outside.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 Eggs (room temp)
  • 4 slices Brioche Bread (days old)

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1½ tbsp red food color
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Berries for garnish
  • powdered sugar for garnish
  • Nutella for garnish (Optional)

Sweet Marscapone Frosting

  • ¼ cup marscapone cheese (room temp)
  • ¼ cup heavy cream (cold)
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

Instructions

  • In a bowl mix together buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, granulated sugar, coco powder and red food color.
  • You can cut the bread in triangles or not (upto preference) soak the bread in the custard for no more then 3 minutes total. 1 minute and 30 seconds on each side.
  • Heat a flat pan and melt butter. Before adding the French toast sprinkle brown sugar on the side you will cook first. Repeat on the second side as well before flipping.
  • It should take around 3 minutes on each side.
