Strawberry French Toast

The other day, we stopped by the local fruit stand that also carries antiques, kitchen ware, and all kinds of fun goodies.

They are also known in our little corner of the world for their sweet, delicious strawberries grown on the mountain just outside of town.

We purchased a bucket of berries (they are already washed and sliced and ready to enjoy) to make jam, and as we were checking out, I happened to notice loaves of strawberry bread for sale and snagged one.

Oh. My. Word.

That bread, a soft loaf swirled with strawberry goodness and topped with a sweet glaze, was incredible!

I used it to make French toast, which we topped with berries and a syrup I made from the leftovers of my jam-making adventures.


Strawberry French Toast


1 loaf strawberry bread (if you can’t find a pre-made loaf, this recipe looks good!)

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon strawberry flavoring



Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment and coat with non-stick cooking spray.

Slice loaf of bread in equal pieces. I like to make my slices thick, so they were about an inch wide each.

Combine eggs, milk, and flavoring in a wide dish or bowl, just until eggs are broken down. Dip bread into bowl, coating both sides, set on baking sheet, and repeat until all pieces are coated.

Bake for about ten minutes, turn slices over, and bake for another 10-12 minutes until outside is lightly browned and slightly crusty.

While the bread bakes, mash 1 cup of strawberries. Add 1/4 cup of sugar and cook in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce reduces and thickens slightly (it’s gonna take about 15 minutes).

Slice a cup full of berries and add sugar if desired.

When French toast is cooked, remove from oven and serve immediately. We put a spoon of berries on top of the toast, drizzled with the syrup, and added a dollop of whipped cream.
