Serves 4-5

5 slices of thick egg bread, Brioche or Challah
4 eggs
3 tbsp (45 ml) heavy cream
2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
1 tsp (5 ml) sugar
2 cups (300 g) of cornflakes, crushed into a coarse meal
3 tbsp (30 g) butter

Powdered sugar
1 cup (150 g) mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)

In a shallow bowl or pie plate, mix together the eggs, cream, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Place cornflakes in a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until a coarse meal forms, transfer to a shallow bowl or pie plate. Toss in sugar and cinnamon.

Cut bread into thick 1 ½ inch slices and place in egg mixture to soak well on both sides, allowing egg mixture to absorb into bread. Then transfer to the corn flake mixture and coat well on both sides.

Place a pat of butter in a skillet, once sizzling add bread and allow to cook for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer to a cookie sheet and once all slices have been browned in skillet transfer to a 300F (150F) oven for 5-7 minutes to cook any egg that didn’t brown on sides and to crisp up the topping.

Remove slices from cookie sheet, dust with powdered sugar. Cut on the diagonal, arranged on plate and top with fresh berries!
