step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Grease a large baking dish. Tear the buns into pieces; place in the baking dish. Using a zester or small side of a box grater, zest the lemon to get 2 teaspoons. In a bowl, whisk the lemon zest, eggs, cream, buttermilk, sugar, warming spices, 1/4 cup of water, and a pinch of salt until combined.

2 Assemble the french toast

Nestle the blueberries evenly among the bun pieces, then pour the cream mixture over the top; press the buns gently to absorb. Tightly cover and refrigerate overnight.

3 Bake the french toast

Remove the cover from the baking dish. Stir the French toast to recombine and arrange in an even layer. Sprinkle the almonds evenly over the top. Cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully remove the foil. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, 15 to 25 minutes, or until puffed, golden, and set in the center. Remove from the oven. Let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.

4 Finish & serve your dish

Melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave; stir in the maple syrup until combined. In a separate bowl, combine the blueberry spread and 1 tablespoon of water. Serve the french toast drizzled with the blueberry spread and maple butter. Enjoy!
