Baked Blueberry French Toast

Baked Blueberry French Toast // The Sugar Hit

 

Baked French Toast is maybe my favourite discovery of recent years. I know that the idea of bread and butter pudding has been around since people had stale bread, but transplanting this dish into a breakfast scenario? Genius.

 

Just like every other asshole out there, I too am sick of standing at the stove flipping french toast of a morning. I know, sorry, that line is like contractually obliged to appear in any post about baked french toast. But it’s true. This recipe is the Dutch Baby of the french toast world. All the deliciousness, no flippin’.

This is a super simple take on the whole she-bang. It’s not Churro flavoured, and it doesn’t secretly contain bacon (shotgun both of those ideas).

 

This is a simple, barely sweetened take on the whole thing. It begs for an extra scattering of fresh blueberries to mingle with the cooked ones, and a drizzle of maple syrup is absolutely compulsory.

In that ideal dream-world where brunch is a regular occurence at my house (it’s really not), I imagine I would serve this next to a big fruit salad with fresh berries and orange segments, and a bowl of whipped ricotta or strained yogurt.

 

The rich, eggy, custardy brioche bake plays very nicely with fresh fruit, and the possibilities for adaption ere are basically endless. Almost every fruit would go well here, apples, pears, strawberries, cherries, bananas (just don’t tell me about it), even a layer of caramelised pineapple on the bottom could be really cool.

The best part here is that you do all the prep work (which is maybe 5 minutes) the night before. Then the next day, you get up, slam this baby in the oven, set a timer and crawl back to bed.

 

The smell of custard, crispy edges and bursting blueberries wafts through the house, and breakfast is served! If I may quote Ina Garten for a second ‘how bad can that be?’.

  1. This would be such perfect breakfast!

  2. I love how renaming it means you get to eat dessert for breakfast – awesome! Though I have been known to eat bread and butter pudding for breakfast anyway :) The brioche/blueberry combo really adds an extra something too, yum!

    • Haha, absolutely! But this is different to a traditional bread and butter pudding in other ways. Mainly, it’s got a lot less sugar, a higher proportion of egg whites, and no cream – so just a little less terrifyingly bad for you! But who am I kidding, I would totally eat tradish b&b pudding for brekky too. xx Sarah

  3. I still haven’t tried baked french toast yet. I know that I would love it though, and this flavour sounds like something I need to try riiiiiight now!!

  4. I’m obsessed with this classic take on a freaking awesome breakfast. I’m dying over the burst blueberries and the melty bread… give me some of this french toast, a drizzle maple syrup and sprinkling of powdered sugar and I’ll be happy as can be!! Pinned!!

  5. i love doing baked french toast! i always make a cinnamon raisin version for christmas morning, and it’s so convenient having it ready to bake when you wake up.

  6. I made this for breakfast and the family ate it all day long. IT was not that difficult and a joy to devour! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Loooove this. I’m usually a pancake type-a gal but when brioche/challah is involved, all bets are off. Well done.

  8. This looks incredible!!!
    What are the ingredient rations though and the baking time and temp?!
