Instead of using white bread to make your French toast in the morning, step outside of the box. Try slices of cornbread — we promise that it is just as good, if not better. 

Ingredients

  • 1  Teaspoon  cinnamon
  • ½  Cup  whole milk
  • eggs
  • 4  Tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • slices of cornbread
  • ½  Cup  honey
  • ½  Cup  fresh mint, thinly sliced
  • 2  Cups  blackberries
  • ¼  Cup  powdered sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together cinnamon, milk, and eggs until thoroughly combined.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Dip cornbread into batter and cook slices in skillet until golden brown and heated through.

Drizzle cornbread with honey and garnish with mint, blackberries, and powdered sugar (dust lightly using a sifter). 

Cornbread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cornbread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
