DIRECTIONS

  • Slice brioche loaf into eight 1"-thick slices with a serrated knife.
  • Using a 3" round cookie cutter, cut each slice into a circle and set aside. (Reserve bread scraps for bread crumbs.).
  • In a shallow dish, whisk together half and half, sugar, cinnamon, salt, orange zest, and eggs.
  • Put cornflakes into another shallow dish.
  • Working with 1 circle of brioche at a time, dip in the egg mixture, allowing brioche to soak for 10 seconds on each side, then coat in the cornflakes.
  • Transfer to a sheet tray lined with waxed paper.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons of the butter in a 10" nonstick skillet over medium heat until just foaming.
  • Transfer 4 slices of brioche to the pan and cook, turning once, until both sides are golden brown, about 4 minutes.
  • Divide the french toast between 2 serving plates.
  • Wipe out skillet, add remaining butter, and repeat process.
  • Dust the french toast with confectioners' sugar and drizzle with maple syrup.
  • Serve with berries and sliced fruit, if you like.
