I love love love French toast! It always makes me think of my grandma. That is why I have a very popular recipe called, French Castle, which I often make myself. One evening when I was scrolling thorough my own recipes, I suddenly had this idea to do something like French toast in the oven. Which eventually led me to create this recipe. I was still improvising a little bit whilst making it, but it turned out very nicely! I definitely felt like sharing this recipe with you. It will look great on a brunch table! Or you can eat it as cake, for a snack. Just make sure that the bread that you are using isn’t too fresh. It’s a great way to use up your bread and fruit. Another great recipe against food waste. Give it a go!
8 slices of bread (old)
1 peach or apple (sliced)
6 strawberries (sliced)
1 small banana (sliced)
1/2 cup blueberries
3/4 cup oat milk
1/3 cup custard powder
1/3 cup plain flour
2 tbs maple syrup
2 tbs almond butter
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
-Preheat the oven at 180C.
-Fold each bread slice in half and put them all up right (like Marie Kondo stores clothes!) in a baking tin.
-Hide the slices of fruit in between the slices of bread.
-Mix all the ingredients for the batter and pour it evenly over the bread slices. Make sure that they are all soaking it up.
-Put it in the oven for 35-45 min.
-Serve with extra fruit and icing and/or brown sugar.
