croissant french toast with fresh berries

Ingredients

  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup (250 mL) 5 % cream or 10 % cream
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of ground ginger
  • 6 croissants each about 6-inches (12.5 cm) long
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • 2 cups (500 mL) fresh berries
  • Warmed maple syrup

Preparation

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with cream, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt and ginger. Place croissants in a 9 x 13-in (23 x 33 cm) baking dish. Pour mixture over top. Soak croissants 5 min, turn and soak another 5 min until liquid is mostly absorbed.

Melt half of butter in large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook croissants 2 to 3 min per side, until golden brown on each side. Repeat with remaining butter and croissants.

Serve warm topped with berries and drizzled with maple syrup.

Tips

It’s even better if you use day old supermarkets croissants.

Try thickly sliced challah or egg bread in place of croissants.
