4 slices


  • ½ cup whole milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 4 1/2-inch thick pieces brioche

  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  2. Whisk milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt together in a wide bowl until thoroughly combined. Dip one slice brioche into the bowl and press gently until both sides are coated. Lift bread from the bowl with a slotted spatula, letting any egg mixture drip back into the bowl, and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bread. Let sit until egg mixture soaks in, about 2 minutes.

  3. Spray the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray. Place one slice brioche onto the waffle iron and gently close the lid without forcing it down. Cook until golden brown and the iron stops steaming, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat to cook remaining waffles.

You can use heavy whipping cream or half-and-half instead of whole milk and cinnamon-swirl bread, French bread, or Hawaiian sweet bread instead of brioche.
