Remarks
For a softer dessert you can remove crusts from brioche slices before adding syrup, this will allow you to cook longer without the crust browning too much, like in these photos.

Don't hesitate to use thicker slices, in which case add syrup to both sides.

A dessert suggestion: serve warm, with a vanilla ice-cream.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered by a plastic film.
