blackberry french toast

This is a decadent combination. Take your favorite french toast recipe (I try to make mine as much like bread pudding as possible – vanilla, eggs, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cream to soak the texas toast before frying in butter), butter it, top it with fresh picked blackberries, drizzle with maple syrup, and top with freshly whipped cream and powdered sugar.
And then, because it is so truly yummy, have another piece.

This recipe is a good example of the need for the best, freshest ingredients you can get. You could probably use pancake syrup, but it wouldn’t be as good. Fake, bought-in-a-tub whipped topping would be fluffy, but not cool, creamy, and delicately sweet. Thawed blackberries wouldn’t burst in your mouth with warm summery goodness like the ones from a neighbor’s brambles. As a general rule, the fewer ingredients and the less cooking involved, the more important it is to have the best ingredients you can afford.
