Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American, French
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 slices Brioche
  • 2 cups berries, I used strawberries, blueberries, and cherries
  • 1/2 recipe frangipane, 1/4 cup or about 1 tablespoon per slice of bread

Frangipane (almond filling)

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 drops almond extract
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

Frangipane

  • In a blender, grind up the almonds to a flour-like powder.  Then add in all of the other ingredients and blend until smooth.   Reserve half in an air tight container in the fridge for another later use (like my blueberry galette). This should stay fresh for 1 week in the fridge.

For the Toast

  • Preheat oven to 350 and get out a baking sheet. 
  • Spread 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of frangipane over the brioche slices.  Top with a mixture of fresh berries. 
  • Arrange bread on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. 
  • Serve warm with yogurt or by itself. 

Notes

The frangipane recipe makes enough for 8 slices of toast or you can use half and reserve half to use for a fruit pie, fruit tart, or a galette (see my recipe for Blueberry Frangipane Galette).
