I’m so excited to share this recipe with you all for 3 reasons:
- I love brunch!
- I love french toast!
- This recipe was inspired by my favorite brunch spot in LA, Blu Jam Cafe!
Total Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients (makes 8 slices french toast)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups corn flakes
- 1/2 french loaf (cut into 8 slices)
Start by placing the milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
In another shallow bowl, add the corn flakes and crush well. Now you could use some fancy mechanism for this, or you could use my method…
Yes, the technical term for this is called “hand crushing”, it’s super fancy y’all!
Now, slice the bread and everything should be ready for your corn flake french toast making experience!
Start by placing each slice of bread in the egg mixture.
Soak each side for about 15 seconds.
Then coat each side with the corn flakes.
Next, add each slice to a skillet coated with cooking spray.
Cook for 3 minutes on each side then flip!
Move to a platter and serve!
I served mine with a homemade Grape Puree:
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients (makes 1 cup puree)
- 1 pound purple grapes
- 3 tbsp butter (cut into small cubes)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp grated nutmeg
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
Start by removing the grapes from their stems and rinse them well.
Place the grapes in an oven safe dish with the butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Place in a 450° oven for 25-30 minutes or until grapes begin to burst.
Add the lemon juice then puree with a hand mixer or immersion blender.
Allow to cool, then serve on the side of french toast for dipping.
What a fun twist to a traditional brunch favorite!
