Lightly sweet and golden brown, this easy French toast recipe is the perfect weekend brunch!

Ingredients

Macerated Berries

  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen raspberries, thawed, with their juices
  • Pinches of cane sugar

French Toast

  • 4 eggs
  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

*To make dairy-free french toast, use ciabatta bread.
