How to Make Gluten-Free Peachy French Toast
French toast always tastes good, but this gluten-free version is a real winner. Keep the cap on the bottle of maple syrup because you won’t need it. The peach syrup that goes over the French toast is two steps up from sublime! You need to have porous gluten-free bread to make this recipe.
Preparation time: 8 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
15-ounce can sliced peaches with syrup
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon plus 4 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/4 teaspoon plus 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk
8 slices white, gluten-free bread
Coarsely chop the peaches into a small saucepan. Add the syrup from the peaches to the pan.
Stir in the honey, 1 tablespoon of butter, brown sugar, maple flavoring, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Heat over medium heat until the butter has melted.
In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch and water until the cornstarch is dissolved. Stir this into the peach mixture.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens (about 4 to 5 minutes).
In a medium shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, and milk.
Melt 2 teaspoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Immerse 4 slices of bread, one slice at a time, in the egg mixture. Drain for a moment, and then cook the slices in a skillet, turning once, until they’re browned on both sides.
Melt the remaining 2 teaspoons of butter in the skillet and repeat Step 7 with the remaining 4 slices of bread.
To serve, spoon the warm peach syrup over slices of French toast.
