FFWD - Sugar Coated French Toast


For French Friday with Dorie this week, our assignment was Sugar Coated French Toast.  I didn't want to splurge on brioche, so I used Viennese bread instead, and I topped my French toast with natural yoghurt and blueberries.

If you are interested, the recipe is available online here.

This was nice, but not sensational.  As this is only a sometimes treat, it is probably just as well that I didn't think it was amazing.

To see what the other Doristas thought, visit the LYL section of the website.

sometimes I like blogging when I enjoy looking at a recipe but have no desire to eat it - this looks great but is not really my thing, no matter how much I try it :-)

Like Johanna and you, this is the kind of thing I love the idea of but am then typically lukewarm about actually eating. I do like your swaps of yoghurt and berries though!

French toast isn't really my thing either - though I love your addition of yoghurt and blueberries :)

Emily said...

Your plate of french toast looks great! Love the smell of vanilla in the custard mix! Definitely a notch up from the usual french toast I made once in a while!

You're right, good but not spectacular, though the crispy sugar coating was definitely interesting. I like your garnishes.

I wish I had berries to go with mine, I think that would have made it perfect!

Yep.it was French toast - tasty, but still, French toast.
Have a nice weekend.

Hehe that's really quite true. Imagine eating it every day! Nice but not for every day :D

You're right; it's a sometimes treat.

It better always be a sometimes treat for me - who can handle all those calories. I think this works with all kinds of breads and yours looks yummy. When I was a kid, my Mom sometimes made French toast for Sunday breakfast. Hers was plain and simple, topped with maple syrup or jelly. Now that was a treat also.

I loved this one! Even though I’m a bit late…it was worth waiting for! The yogurt and blueberries make a perfect accompaniment!

I enjoyed this one (though I made an eggnog version) as a dessert. I like your accompaniments!
