Author: Jeanine Donofrio
Recipe type: Breakfast
2 cups diced strawberries
½ cup frozen raspberries, thawed, with their juices
Pinches of cane sugar
1 cup almond milk (or any milk)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cardamom
Pinch of sea salt
8 (1-inch) slices challah bread* (see note)
Coconut oil, for brushing
Maple syrup, for serving
Make the macerated berries: In a medium bowl, combine the strawberries, raspberries, and a few pinches of sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes for the berries to soften. Stir before serving.
Make the french toast: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Dip each slice of bread into the mixture and set the soaked bread aside on a large tray or plate.
Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat and brush with coconut oil. Add the bread slices and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to low as needed to cook thoroughly without burning. Serve with maple syrup and the macerated berries.
*To make dairy-free french toast, use ciabatta bread.
