Baguette French Toast with Blueberrys


For the French Toast:

1 Baguette

3 eggs

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp sugar

1/2 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup milk

dash of salt

Butter for frying

For the blueberry topping:

1 Package frozen blueberry’s (about 1 – 1 1/2 cups)

1 tbsp orange marmalade or 1/4 cup orange juice

2 Tbsp butter

Begin by preparing the custard: In a deep wide dish. deep enough for the bread to fit in and be covered by the custard. Mix all ingredients (except the bread and the butter). Then cut the baguette into 1″ slices cut diagonally. As the bread is sliced place it in the custard. (the longer it soaks in there the  better). Once all is done, put a skillet on medium heat. Add the butter and once its heated start adding the soaked bread slices. Please note, once the bread in in the pan do not move it around, it may appear to be sticking but its not. Once the bread gets fully crisp and brown it will become easier to flip, maybe 3-5 mins per side.

While this is cooking, in another pan, melt 1 tbsp butter, add the blueberry, allow it to cook for about 5mins, then add the orange juice or the marmalade. Cook for another 10mins on low heat. If needed add the remaining butter.

Serve warm topped with the blueberry.
