A delicious recipe for fabulous, fruity French toast, baked with blueberries and served with maple syrup. Yum!

Serves 6

To make Baked Blueberry French Toast, you will need:

10 slices of your favourite bread (we love Tip Top Hi-Protein bread)
6 large eggs
1 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (with 1/2 teaspoon extra)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.
3/4 cup fresh or dried blueberries
1 cup milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
Maple syrup and icing sugar to serve

How to make Baked Blueberry French Toast:

Pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees Celcius.
Grease lightly a baking dish (Size: 22 x 33 cm) and arrange 5 of the bread slices in it. Sprinkle blueberries over the slices, then place the remaining 5 bread slices atop.
Combine eggs, sugar, one teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla and milk in a large bowl. Whisk to blend well.
Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or least a few hours.
Uncover the baking dish. Dust each slice of bread with a few teaspoons of brown sugar and the extra half teaspoon of cinnamon. Drizzle with the melted butter. Bake without lid or cover for 50 – 55 minutes or until golden and set.
Using a sharp knife cut around each slice of bread. Slice and lift out with a spatula, then serve with a drizzle maple syrup, a dusting of icing sugar and fresh berries if you have them.
Trudi’s tips:
Blueberries are chock full of antoixidants. They’re a summer fruit but dried blueberries are just as good in this fruity french toast recipe.
You can also serve with oranges wedges or warm spiced mixed fruit
Instead sliced bread, use Italian bread, 8 to 9 thick slices (2-3cm). A perfect recipe for using up stale bread loaves etc.
