Hey, Hey, Hey! It’s March and I can feel Spring fast approaching. Unfortunately, this weather here in NYC hasn’t gotten the memo on my excitement towards Spring, but hey! I’ll remain bundled up for next few weeks, I guess. Haha.
More importantly, I know that things have been a little slow as it relates to recipes (I know that you might be use to several recipes each week), but I’ve been taking mini breaks for the past few weeks.
Honestly, I’ve been going through a slight moment “Blah-ness” and I’ve been doing a lot of prep work for future goals for the rest of 2019.
Whelp, if I’m honest (yet again!)—I’ve barely been cooking or baking. I know—it’s crazy! When it comes to being in the kitchen, my best work happens when I’m emotionally engulfed in what I’m creating. Therefore, in these last few moments of “Blah-ness”, it’s been pretty tough to get engulfed. The good news—I’ve begun making recipes again more recently and my hands are back at work! Yay!!
If you’ve been following Orchids + Sweet Tea avidly, then you know that french toast is one of my favorite breakfast/brunch foods, and I love using brioche-like bread to create a nice fluffiness and thickness.
This Delicious French Toast + Caramelized Apples recipe is irresistibly good and is not only perfect for the fall season, but is a real treat for those early mornings or family gathering. These Pumpkin French Toasts + Praline Sauce are just as amazing and comes with a Vegan option as well.
Now, if you know me personally, then you know that I enjoy a good breakfast if I do get around to eating it. During the week on most days, I tend to grab something quick since I often have work. However, the weekends are my faves because I get a chance to whip together something intricate! This french toast is no different.

Let’s dig our forks right into this recipe, shall we?
Whisk together all the ingredients (except for the bread) into a large bowl and set aside so that everything marries together and activates, about 5 minutes.
Preheat griddle to medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp of vegan butter, melting it.
Dip 1 slice of bread into the batter, soaking it in for a few seconds on each side. Place slice unto the heated griddle, cooking on each side for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Repeat until all french toast has been made.
For Blueberry Compote:
Combine blueberries, organic pure cane sugar, lemon juice, water, and vanilla extract in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
Lower heat to simmer until the blueberries are soft.
Now mix arrowroot in a small bowl with warm water until well combined, “milk-like” in consistency, and lump-free. Add mixture to saucepan with blueberries and stir until syrup thickens.
Continue to simmer for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once done, remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
To serve—stack french toast atop each other and spoon Blueberry Compote over stack. Add sliced Almonds atop french toast, if desired.
