8 Easy Steps to Make Creme Brulee French Toast at Home

Crème Brulee French Toast...
Just the sound of these four words is giving me butterflies in my stomach. Well, my second “dessert” stomach (foodies will know which one I’m talking about).
This food coma-inducing dessert is so irresistible that it’s almost like a spell. So, don’t say I didn’t warn you of its power before you scroll down for the recipe…
In my opinion, Crème Brulee itself already is the MVP of all desserts.
Translating as “burnt cream” (which really is all there is), this quintessential French classic is a staple in every dessert cookbook for beginners.
And French toast, a dish so commonly found on every local Cha Chaan Tang menu, is definitely no stranger to Hong Kong people.
DID YOU KNOW?
Although the origin of French Toast is not clear, “French toast” in France is called “pain perdu”, which means “lost bread” because, originally, the bread used for making French toast was unwanted bread.
