Blueberry Compote French Toast

This classic french toast recipe is easy to make and and delicious. I used sliced Brioche from Trader Joes. I find that sweet buttery bread works best for french toast. I loaded it up with a homemade blueberry compote that can be made in minutes. Blueberry compote is a great less sweet alternative to maple syrup. Sprinkle a little bit of powdered sugar for the perfect sweetness in addition to the tart compote and buttery french toast. This fluffy french toast has a homemade blueberry compote that adds the perfect amount of sweetness. The perfect addition to Sunday Brunch.

Tips and Tricks for the perfect Blueberry Compote French Toast:

  • Dip bread for 20 seconds per side to get the perfect soak but not so it’s soggy.
  • Cook on medium high heat for the perfect crispy french toast slices.
  • Regular sugar can be used instead of Maple Syrup in the compote, just cut the amount in half.
  • Homemade Brioche works great as well. This recipe looks great!
  • Keep finished french toast in an oven at 200 degrees until the rest of your meal is ready.
  • Make multiple types of compote ahead of time to have a compote bar for the french toast. Strawberry, blackberry, or cherry compotes would be great as well.
  • If you would like a stronger vanilla flavor, simmer vanilla extract in milk for a few minutes.
