Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 people


  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter


  • In a bowl or flat-bottomed dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, cinnamon, vanilla extract, sugar, and salt (if you used a bowl to whisk, transfer to a flat-bottomed dish for soaking the bread).
  • Heat your skillet on medium-low heat and add 1 tablespoon unsalted butter.
  • While the skillet preheats, lay 1-2 slices of bread – depending on how many fit – into your custard mixture and soak for 1 minute on each side.
  • Carefully take the bread out of the custard mixture and allow any excess liquid to drip off. Then place the bread into the heated skillet and cook on medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Repeat the soak & cook steps for each slice of bread.
