Recipe: Baked French Toast With Strawberry Sauce

11 May

Spring has sprung and I’m starting to crave all of the fresh flavours of summer. One of my favourites is this lovely strawberry sauce that my mom used to make when we were camping. You can also make this with fresh strawberries but I find the frozen ones work just as good.

Strawberry Sauce

1 bag frozen strawberries (whole or sliced)
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup juice (apple is good)

In a large glass bowl, defrost the strawberries for a few minutes in the microwave. They should be slightly soft but not fully defrosted. When ready throw them into a blender or food processor with the sugar. Create slurry from the juice and the cornstarch and throw that in as well. Blend until smooth.

Place the mixture back into your big glass bowl and microwave on high for approximately 6-8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

The sauce can be reheated (you may need to thin with a little more juice) and kept in the fridge for a week or so. Try it on pancakes, ice cream or other desserts.

 

Baked French Toast
1/2 loaf of bread
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla

Rip the bread into bite sized pieces and arrange in a greased 8×8 or 9×9 dish. Beat the remaining ingredients and pour over top of the bread. Cover and store overnight in the fridge.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and sprinkle the top with a bit more sugar and a pinch of cinnamon if you’d like. Bake uncovered for about 60 minutes and serve warm.
