we ran out of muffins…

We ran out of muffins.
So I made Spiced French Toast.

With Blueberry and Cherry Cinnamon Compote.

Seriously, the best Saturday morning breakfast we’ve had in a long time, and all thanks to one of my Twitter pals mentioning what she was up to for breakfast….and it just sounded SO good I had to run and make some.

Good food makes me so happy!


Here’s the recipe for the compote I made – this would also be amazing served over yogurt, or ice cream…or eaten straight outta the bowl.

Warm Berry Cinnamon Compote

1 cup fresh or frozen berries

1/8-1/4 cup granulated sugar

small dash cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

Heat all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, until berries soften and release their juices.  Serve warm, and store any leftovers in the fridge up to about a week.

And here is my Spiced French Toast recipe over at MomSpark!  While you’re at it, could you log in and vote for MomSpark here?  We were nominated for a “love this site” award, and it would be AWESOME if we won!  It would help us continue bringing great resources for moms all under one roof!  Thanks.

Happy weekend, everybody!

  1. That looks delicious. We actually had French toast for dinner at some point last week. Had this fabulous multigrain bread from Fresh & Easy, which I needed to use up, and it was just perfect. (And, since it was dinner, I used a no-sugar recipe rather than the family recipe, which uses practically lethal amounts of butter and sugar.) I’m thinking I’ll have to try out the compote now! (Well, not NOW…soon…)

  2. Hey!
    I started reading your blog thanks to Jaime H. – I work with her. I made this compote over the weekend and used Challah bread for french toast – made sweet and spicy bacon in the oven – gruyere scrambled eggs with asparagus and fresh raspberry mimosas! It was amazing – and SO easy. Thanks for the great recipe
