Honestly, this must be the best French Toast ever, if you like peanut butter that is.. It's decadent, sweet, salty, nutty and just absolutely amazing!! Might be the reason why it's on the cover of this month's issue of BBC Good Food ME ;) And if you don't like peanut buttter, just make it plain with the berry coulis, it's still yummy!
So after such popular demand and many requests for me to post the recipe on the blog, here it is.. D's Peanut Butter French Toast! Have a great weekend, D xx
Easy. Prep & Cook Time : ~20 minutes
Serves 4 - 6
- 6 slices Brioche bread
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- ¼ cup light cooking cream
- 6 tbsp smooth peanut butter
- 3 tbsp white sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- Freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 cup mixed berries
- 1 tbsp icing sugar
- Knob of butter
- ¼ cup crushed peanuts
In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cream, half the peanut butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until smooth. Then place the Brioche slices on a semi deep dish and pour the egg mixture on top, letting the bread soak for a few minutes.
In a small saucepan cook the berries with icing sugar on low heat for a few minutes, just until they release their juices then set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk the remaining peanut butter with the maple syrup and one or two tablespoons of hot water to obtain a syrupy consistency, then set aside.
Heat a knob of butter in a pan on medium heat. Fry the brioche slices for a minute or so on each side and serve on a plate. Drizzle with the coulis, peanut butter sauce, garnish with peanuts and some icing sugar. Delish!
