About this Recipe

What’s better on Sunday morning than homemade French toast? Fast and easy no-flip French toast! We added poppy seeds and lemon zest for a fun twist on the classic recipe. If you prefer the traditional style, just omit those ingredients.



Prep custard

  • Set out 2 teaspoons butter to soften for 15–30 minutes.
  • If you prefer classic French toast, omit poppy seeds and lemon zest.
  • In medium bowl, whisk together milk, cream, eggs, egg yolk, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, poppy seeds, lemon zest and ½ teaspoon salt.


Soak bread in custard

  • Pour custard mixture into baking sheet. Place bread slices in custard and soak for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip and soak for 30 seconds more.
  • While bread soaks, evenly spread softened butter on Zones 1, 2 and 3 of Brava metal tray.


Bake French Toast

  • Remove bread slices from custard, letting excess drip off, and place slices, evenly spaced apart, in Zones 1, 2 and 3 of metal tray.
  • Slide metal tray into top shelf.
  • Select “Lemon Poppy French Toast” on your Brava touchscreen and follow instructions.



  • When your food is done, transfer French toast to individual plates.
  • Drizzle with maple syrup and, if desired, top with fresh fruit and/or pecans or almonds.
