Ingredients
French Toast
  • 4 thick slices of good bread (I prefer challah or brioche or any good thick sliced bread)
  • ¼ cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Butter for cooking
  • Chocolate peanut butter (I love the one from Peanut Butter & Co. but you can use your favorite!)
Mixed Berry Sauce
  • ½ cup frozen mixed berries or use berries of your choice
  • ½ cup water
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
Instructions
  1. If using fresh bread, it's advisable to leave it out overnight so it gets a bit dry which will help in absorbing the custard better.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix eggs, milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Smear good amount of chocolate peanut butter on one slice and cover it with the other slice and press tightly to seal the edges.
  4. Heat some butter in a pan. While butter is melting, place the sandwich in the egg mix and let it sit for a minute. Flip and repeat so both sides absorb the egg mix.
  5. Now place it on the pan and cook on medium heat until nicely golden brown. Flip and cook the other side the same way.
  6. While french toast is cooking, in a pot add all the ingredients of sauce and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add cornstarch and stir. Cook until it gets to your desired thickness.
  7. Serve warm french toast with berry sauce. Devour immediately.
Notes
You can make the sauce in advance and just heat it up before serving. If it get's too thick, add little water to loosen it up and bring to a boil once.
