Want to add some variety to your breakfast French toast? Try adding some fruit! This is a very easy recipe that requires no measuring and should just be done by eye and to taste.
What you will need:
- Fresh Peaches
- Brown Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Whipped Cream (optional)
- A Loaf of Bread (We prefer to bake a loaf the night before so that it will be cooled and easier to slice. If you can’t bake your own bread, at least attempt to get Texas toast or some sort of loaf that would be good for French toast so that the slices are nice and thick.
Slice your peaches and let them sit overnight in the fridge, marinating in a mixture of the brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon and enough water to cover the peaches. You do not have to let them sit overnight, but I like too because it tastes better and makes things easier in the morning.
The next morning, pour the mixture with the peaches into a frying pan. Add butter and let simmer over medium heat until the peaches are tender and allowing the syrup in the pan to reduce.
While the peaches are reducing, make a typical French toast batter by scrambling eggs, a shot of milk, cinnamon, vanilla and brown sugar in a bowl. Dip thick slices of bread in the French toast batter and fry the slices over medium heat until the eggs that has soaked into the bread have cooked through and the edges are nice and crispy.
Once the French toast has cooked, place one slice on the plate and then spoon peaches and syrup over that slice and cover with a second slice of French toast. Slice in half and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut in half and serve with more syrup from the peaches, or regular pancake syrup. Top with whipped cream if desired.
