Easy Mixed Berry And Lemon French Toast
Around Easter, I start thinking of recipes perfect for a Spring brunch. This recipe really couldn't get any easier, yet it has a wow factor to it. It is so easy to make, I actually surprised my boys with it on a busy school morning. Of course you could make some sweet bread from scratch, but I used two store bought loaf cakes from Walmart. Quick enough to make even on a busy week day morning, but fancy enough, you will want to take it to your next Spring brunch. It's sweet enough, you could even serve it for dessert!
Easy Mixed Berry And Lemon French Toast Ingredients:
Serves 10 (1 slice of each flavor)
1 package of Triple Berry Sliced Loaf Cake from Walmart
1 package of Lemon Sliced Loaf Cake from Walmart
6 eggs (I used Cholesterol Free Egg Product)
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 Large Container of Cool Whip (I used Fat Free)
2 tsp Lemon Extract (more or less to taste)
Store Bought Blueberry Syrup
Garnish: Lemons, slice and zest
Non Stick Butter Flavored Spray
Whisk milk and egg together until well combined. Dip bread, coating either side very well in mixture. Spray your hot pan (350-400 F degrees) with non stick spray, and cook each slice until golden brown on both sides. Flipping to cook evenly. Just like you would to make regular french toast. Mix lemon extract with cool whip. Add more or less lemon extract to your taste liking. Serve one of each flavor of french toast, and top with blueberry syrup, lemon flavored cool whip, lemon zest, and a lemon slice or wedge for garnish.
Fresh blueberries or blueberry pie filling instead of blueberry syrup would also be good.
Well that's one of the many things I have been making, what about you? Come share at our weekly Anything Goes linky party.
