PointsPlus Blueberry-Peach French Toast Recipe
A perfect way to use fresh summer fruit (or thawed frozen fruit) for an easy French Toast creation.
- 16 slices light whole wheat bread
- 1 cup fresh blueberries, or 1 cup frozen, thawed blueberries
- 1 large peach, chopped or 1 cup frozen, thawed peach slices
- 2 ½ cups fat-free skim milk
- 2 cups fat-free egg substitute
- 2 tablespoons sugar, granulated
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange 8 slices of bread in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, squishing slices together to make one layer. Sprinkle the blueberries and peaches on top.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg substitute, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Pour half of the milk mixture over fruit. Top with the remaining 8 slices of bread. Pour remaining milk mixture over bread. Using a spatula, press top layer of bread slices down to saturate with milk mixture.
Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover dish and bake until egg mixture is set and top is golden brown, about 10 minutes more. Cool slightly before sifting powdered sugar on top. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.
