Cinnamon French Toast with Blueberry Sauce

French toast is the perfect brunch meal. It can use up all of the old odds and ends of bread you have stashed away in the back corner of your freezer or cupboard and transform them into a sweet custardy delight. We put dual-cooking zones of Suvie to good use in the recipe by cooking a simple blueberry sauce on one side and the French toast on the other. You can substitute blueberries with any of your favorite frozen fruits or use a combination. This recipe is best when you schedule it the night before and have it ready in the morning so the bread has time to soak up all of the custard.

Ingredients

French Toast

  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, divided
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 8 slices sandwich bread
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar, for topping
  • ½ cup maple syrup (optional garnish)

Blueberry Sauce

  • 1 lb frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch

Directions

1) In a large bowl, whisk together 3 eggs, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp melted butter, and 1 tbsp vanilla extract until smooth.

2) Stir in 1 cup milk, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp salt.

3) Cut the bread into small pieces (we made triangles, but you can cut into squares or simple up the bread with your hands) and place in a greased Suvie pan.

4) Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread and then press lightly to make sure the bread soaks up all the liquid.

5) In a small bowl combine ½ cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup water, 2 tsp lemon juice, and 2 tbsp cornstarch. Place the blueberries in a second Suvie pan and stir in the sugar mixture.

6) Place blueberries in the top zone and the French toast in the bottom zone of Suvie. Input settings, and cook now or schedule. 

Suvie Cook Settings

Bottom Zone: Slow Cook High for 1 hour and 30 minutes

7) After the cook, remove the French toast from Suvie. In a small bowl, stir together ¼ cup granulated sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.

8) Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar in an even layer over the French toast. Return the pan to Suvie and broil carefully for 5-7 minutes, rotating halfway through. Watch the pan very closely as the sugar can burn quickly. 

9) Remove the blueberry sauce from the pan and stir to combine. After the broil, remove the French toast and divide between plates. Top with the blueberry sauce and maple syrup.

Note: If you would like to make this recipe in Suvie 1.0, insert pans into the top zones of Suvie, fill reservoir, and set to Slow Cook on High for 1 hour.

I put this together the night before and scheduled it to be done at 9 am. The total time for the slow cook ended up at almost 2 hours for the machine to warm up? and then slow cook for an hour. It was finished at 9 am. I then added 15 minutes on bake so that the French toast fluffed up and toasted slightly on top. (I did not broil). Very delicious and a hit for the family!

I’m new to this… The instructions say to put both in the top zone? That must be a mistake?

French toast must go in bottom zone and blueberries on top, with no specific cook needed?

Thanks!

Whoops! Sorry about that Byron. Thanks for catching that typo. We edited the recipe. Suvie always applies the same time and temperature when slow cooking to both zones, so you never have to set both – just the bottom!

I feel some instructions are missing. How can I put two things in the top zone and there are no top zone settings provided.

“ 6) Place blueberries in the top zone and the French toast in the top zone of Suvie. Input settings, and cook now or schedule.

Gonna have to try this again with less sugar! It was delicious, but way too decadent for our taste. Couldn’t stomach seconds. But it’s yummy for sure!
