Peach French Toast

I can’t believe that it has taken almost 5 years to get a french toast recipe on Mildly Meandering.  French toast is one of my husband’s favorite breakfast foods so we make it a lot at my house.  When peaches are in season, this peach french toast recipe is a go-to because of it’s simple, yet delicious flavors.  This french toast recipe was inspired by my love of peaches that I discovered after making a peach bundt cake and realizing that they are basically the perfect fruit!

To make peach french toast, all you do it make regular french toast using brioche bread (or any other type that you like) and then you make a homemade bourbon maple syrup.  Don’t worry, the maple syrup is just 3 simple ingredients but it adds such a great flavor to the french toast.  Just drizzle that on top with a big pile of peaches and there you have it – peach french toast!

Now the one weird thing is that the peaches are only a topping just because unless you stuff the french toast or somehow use a bread with peaches in it, it is pretty impossible to add them to the french toast.  If you wanted to add even more peach flavor the the french toast, you could always skip the bourbon maple syrup and instead make a peach sauce by cooking some fresh peaches over medium heat with a bit of sugar for a few minutes before mashing them up a bit or alternatively lathering the french toast in peach jam.
