One that is full of bright, springy flavor and easy! The moms in your life will love this blueberry lemon cream french toast bake.
I’ve had this raspberries and cream french toast bake on my mind for awhile now and have wanted to make a variation of it. I finally got in the kitchen to switch it up just in time for Mother’s Day (or any other spring celebration!).
Instead of just cutting up cream cheese and mixing it throughout the french toast bake, the cream cheese is blended with a bit of confectioner’s sugar, fresh lemon juice, and fresh lemon zest.
It’s then dropped by spoonfuls over half of the bread mixture creating a creamy lemon layer that pairs beautifully with the sweet blueberry french toast.
A light layer of cinnamon streusel tops it off giving you a sweet, buttery crunch in each bite, and a sprinkling of fresh lemon zest is added right before serving to tie together all the layers of flavor.
I love how easy french toast bakes are and how you can make most of them the night before. This one is no different. Just mix it all together the night before, stick it in the fridge, and pop it in the oven the next day.
Whether you’re in need of a last minute Mother’s Day brunch idea or just want something a little extra special for breakfast, this french toast bake is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
