When life gives  you a mini baguette loaf, you make French toast.

I had two farmer’s markets over the weekend, and I was most happy with my new recipe for French bread. Bread has always been my Achilles heel in gluten-free baking. If you’ve tried, I feel most will feel me on this. It has a tendency to be dense. Small. It doesn’t hold well sometimes. It can just get heavy. My favorite bread recipe ever is: 2 cups almond or cashew butter, 5 eggs, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp baking soda, and 1/2 tsp sea salt. It gets a nice rise, so I don’t end up with a punny bread that is a struggle to make a sandwich out of. I would love to make this bread for the market, but it isn’t very cost effective, I’d probably have to charge over $15 for a loaf of bread, because the cost of almond butter just seems to go up.

This French bread, though, I used yeast in. It smells and tastes like bread. It is lighter and less dense. It has a great flavor. I am chalking it up as a major win! I plan on selling this at stores and markets, though, so I will not be sharing it’s recipe (I’ll like to one that is really good though), but I will let you know how to make some delicious French toast with it.

My initial plan was to just plain old French toast. But then I saw this apple chilling on top of the fridge. Hmm…..I love baked apples, especially in the morning. It was a done deal that I was going to make cinnamony French toast + apples. WOW! So good.

You can top your’s however you want, though. Jam. Butter or ghee. Maple. Plain. Blueberries. Strawberries and goat cheese. Lemon Curd. Options, you have lots of options, s’mores. Pumpkin in the fall. Get creative.
