The weekend is fast approaching. You planned a brunch but don’t have any inspired ideas for what to serve. Not to worry, COBS Bread has you covered with an exquisite, sinfully sweet, grown-up take on the crowd-pleasing brunch classic – French Toast.
Bread is naturally at the heart of this Pomegranate and Chocolate Apricot Delight French Toast recipe – specifically our Apricot Delight Log. This signature bread is bursting with juicy apricots, plump raisins and currants and boastfully includes more fruit than flour.
Each delicious slice is dunked in a mouth-watering bath of eggs, milk, vanilla, ground ginger and nutmeg before being cooked to a golden brown.
The fruity French Toast is then transferred to your favourite serving platter, drizzled with melted dark chocolate and topped with coconut chips and fresh pomegranate seeds – making this elevated recipe a feast for both the eyes and the stomach.
Wow your family and guests this weekend. Pick up an Apricot Delight Log at your local COBS Bread bakery to get started.
