Ingredients

Scale

for the maple baked French toast:

  • 6 thick slices brioche bread¹
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

for the maple blueberries:

  • 1 cup blueberries²
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

Instructions

for the maple baked French toast:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs together, then whisk in the milk until well-combined. Stir in the maple syrup, vanilla, and spices.
  3. Dip the sliced brioche in the custard mixture, letting the bread generously soak up the custard. Gently shake off the excess, and transfer to a lightly greased or parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, until the bread is golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Serve immediately with butter, maple syrup, confectioners sugar, and the saucy blueberries.

for the maple blueberries

  1. While the French toast is baking, add the blueberries and maple syrup to a medium sauce pot over medium heat.
  2. Cook, stirring often, until the berries begin to slightly break down and release their juices, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve over the French toast.

Notes

¹ French Brioche can be found in the bakery section of well-stocked grocery stores. Challah is another great choice.
² Fresh or frozen blueberries will work here.
Make it dairy free: Use almond milk or coconut milk, then brush the tops with melted coconut oil instead of butter.
