In the wake of Mother’s Day, it’s only right that we share a delicious brunch recipe that mom would love.
I am absolutely in love with this Cinnamon Brioche French Toast dish from Mimi’s Cafe! It is best described as cinnamon swirled brioche slices flavored with nutmeg and a hint of orange zest, griddled to a golden brown. It is served with fresh-cut fruit, and you can add bacon and eggs to your meal. Holy heavens!
