CINNAMON RAISIN FRENCH TOAST WITH SWEET BERRY SAUCE


I just love something a little sweet for breakfast and french toast with a generous drizzle of berry sauce on top does the trick! I created this recipe originally so I can satisfy my craving for berry pie, which I happen to love. The sweet berry sauce is not too thick which helps the french toast soak up the berry goodness. I really hope you all enjoy this one as much as I do.

Serves 4
Note: Make the berry sauce first before starting the french toast

Sweet Berry Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • cinnamon stick (optional)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

In a small sauce pot, add in the cranberry juice, raspberry jam, the granulated sugar and the cinnamon stick (optional). Bring the pot to a boil and then turn the heat down to medium. Let the sauce simmer for a good 15 minutes stirring occasionally. You should start to see the sauce reduce to a thick syrupy consistency. In the last couple of minutes add in the blueberries so it can slightly warm through. Once you have it at your desired consistency take it off the heat and let it cool slightly. While it cools start making your french toast.

French Toast Ingredients:
  • 8 slices cinnamon raisin bread (2 slices per person)
  • 4 eggs, beaten (1 egg = 2 slices of bread)
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 2-3 tbsp butter or margarine

1. In a large bowl, crack in the eggs and add in the milk and the pinch of salt. Whisk it altogether for about 2 minute to get it nice and fluffy.

2. Take a large non-stick skillet and preheat your pan on medium high heat. Take 2 tbsp of butter and start to melt it in your pan. Meantime, take your cinnamon bread slices and one by one dip it into the eggs. Let the bread soak up the egg mixture and immediately start putting each slice onto the hot pan. This should take about 2 minutes per side. You will see when it is time to flip when the bread start to brown. Serve immediately with the slightly cooled berry sauce and enjoy!

Suggestions: You can use the berry sauce to top ice cream, warm brownies, pancakes and waffles. This is quite a versatile sauce.
