Peaches and Cream French Toast - a fluffy French toast with a perfectly crisp edge and a natural sweetness from super juicy end of summer peaches - this is brunch ready!
If you ask me what my favorite late summer food is?
This year I would have to say peaches.
I think I have had the best peaches of my life this summer, no lie.
Dramatic? I don't know. The peaches I have enjoyed are simply perfect. That exact right amount of natural sweet, and so juicy. This is like, one of three recipes I have bothered to make with peaches this summer, since I cannot get beyond just eating them as is.
Like, in the car on the way home from the market.
My new car may have had a few sticky spots on the steering wheel that needed cleaning last week.
French toast gets talked about here often enough, yes? You know I like it, you know I channel Grandpa Z with his fluffy salted French toast. This is the first time I made this particular idea for a custard, using a sweet combination of apple sweetened cashew cream and coconut cream - pretty darned good, but I still had to make the recipe a few times before sharing here. Oh darn.
