Happy summer! I know it’s not officially summer yet, but my kids are out on summer break starting this week, so summer it is.
I for one am really happy that school’s out, because the past couple of months have been crazy…why do the schools jam so much into the last 2 months?
Little league season is over now, too, so this week I feel like I’m catching breath.
Blueberry Baked French Toast
What better way to catch our breath than with a soft, fluffy blueberry baked french toast? I’ve been sharing an awful lot of breakfast recipes of late, and blueberries are finding their way into all of them.
They’re my favorite breakfast berry…can you tell?
And because I couldn’t stuff any blueberries in between these cubes of bread and there was only room on top, I decided to serve this baked french toast with blueberry maple syrup.
It’s blueberry-licious. 🙂
I’ve explained to you countless times that I don’t make big breakfasts often because I’m either lazy in the morning or I’m headed for the gym. However, this baked french toast recipe requires little effort the night before, and it does its thing overnight while you sleep.
What exactly is its thing?
The cubed bread absorbs the egg-milk mixture overnight, which creates the fluffiest french toast ever. When it bakes, it puffs up, and the top gets nice and crispy.
The contrast of the fluffiness, richness, and crispy crust just makes this breakfast over the top delicious.
Recipe notes and substitutions
- I used coconut milk in this version, because it’s so rich and creamy and I love the flavor. You can use whatever kind of milk you desire here — almond, whole milk, or skim milk — depending on how rich you’d like your french toast.
- If you don’t have any blueberries, don’t let that stop you! Any type of fruit would be delicious here as well, so you can customize this with whatever you have on hand.
