  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoon light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon salt
  • 3 slices of thick sliced brioche bread sliced in half
  • Oil for spraying


  • Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine eggs, heavy cream, light brown sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and salt in a large shallow bowl. Set aside.
  • Lay bread slices in egg mixture and allow mixture to soak for 10 seconds on each side.
  • Spray air fryer basket with oil and lay air fryer slices in basket. Close and cook on 380F for 4 minutes, then open and carefully flip bread slices and cook for an additional 3.
  • Remove, serve and enjoy.


  • The bottom of your french toast may have grooves in the bottom from being placed in the air fryer. This is only cosmetic and does not affect the taste or how the top of the french toast appears.
  • Brioche bread is generally thicker-sliced and sweeter than normal bread. You can use other thick sliced bread if you prefer.
  • I do not recommend making this recipe in air fryers with the silver metal grates. Wet batters tend to stick to those grates, no matter how much you grease them.
