Blueberry French Toast

It starts with a pint of fresh blueberries in this blueberry french toast recipe. Then, the blueberries are boiled with water to create a blueberry sauce that goes into the batter, as well as used as a topping. With summertime upon us, it’s the perfect time to pick or buy fresh blueberries to use in your recipes. The end result is french toast with just a hint of blueberry flavor.


Adding Blueberry Sauce to Blueberry French Toast Batter

French Toast Ingredients

Blueberries: As I stated above, summertime is peak blueberry season. So, use fresh blueberries if you can. You could also get by using frozen blueberries.Bread: I chose to use Texas Toast in this recipe. I also like brioche bread for french toast. I would stay away from white bread because it is too flimsy. For best results, slightly stale bread works best at absorbing the egg batter.

Vanilla and Cinnamon: Adding these two ingredients to the batter in blueberry french toast does amp up the flavor!

Making Blueberry French Toast

Soggy French Toast?

Yes, a piece of soggy french toast still tastes good, but the texture is definitely not that appealing. Here are a few reasons your french toast may be soggy:

  • The bread soaked up too much of the batter. Remember to just dip the bread in the batter.
  • The kind of bread you are using is too flimsy.
  • Too much milk was added to the batter. On that note, stick to whole milk; otherwise, it is too watery, which won’t help with soggy french toast.
  • Cooking time wasn’t long enough. Keep the heat to medium and cook for a few minutes on each side.

Keeping these things in mind will have you making a perfect slice of French toast every time!

Blueberry French Toast takes your french toast to a fruity level by adding a blueberry sauce made with fresh blueberries.


Blueberry Sauce

  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, or frozen
  • cup water

French Toast Batter

  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • cup whole milk,
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, or more or less to taste
  • 10-12 slices Texas Toast
  • pure maple syrup, for topping


Blueberry Sauce

  • In a saucepan over medium heat add blueberries and water.
  • Cook over medium heat until boiling. After it comes to a boil, use the back of a spoon or potato masher to gently mash the blueberries. The blueberries should start to break down in 10-15 minutes, resulting in 1 cup sauce.
  • Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly while you prepare the French toast batter.

French Toast Batter

  • In a large, wide bottom bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon with wire whisk until smooth. Pour in the half (½ cup) of the blueberry sauce and whisk until combined. Reserve the other half of the sauce for topping.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium.
  • Dip bread into blueberry batter (do not soak it). Then, place on heated skillet and cook 2-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Serve with room temperature butter, maple syrup, and top with the reserved blueberry sauce.

  1. Really tasty. I had less blueberries so went with a 1/4 cup water, it still thickened up nicely. I was worried it might be too tart but had a lovely balance.

    With the sugar in the toast mix it browned quicker than other french toast, so I’d recommend a a close eye.

    Thanks for a lovely recipe.
