  • Macerated Berries
  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen raspberries, thawed, with their juices
  • Pinches of cane sugar
  • French Toast
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk, or any milk

  • Coconut oil, for brushing

Lightly sweet and golden brown, this easy French toast recipe is the perfect weekend brunch! I love serving it with macerated berries in the spring and summer, but feel free to substitute whatever fresh fruit is in season.


Make the macerated berries: In a medium bowl, combine the strawberries, raspberries, and a few pinches of sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes for the berries to soften. Stir before serving.

Make the French toast: In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Dip each slice of bread into the mixture and set the soaked bread aside on a large tray or plate.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and brush with coconut oil. Add the bread slices and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to low as needed to cook thoroughly without burning. Serve with maple syrup and the macerated berries.


*To make dairy-free french toast, use ciabatta bread.

Give the custard time to soak in. No one likes to cut into a slice of French toast and find that it’s just plain bread inside! After you dip the bread slices in the egg mixture, set them aside for a few minutes while you preheat your pan. This small step gives the custard a little more time to hydrate the bread, so it’s soft and spiced the whole way through.
