Vegan Eggnog French Toast Bake
In the mood for a breakfast treat? This eggnog french toast bake is vegan, moreish, and simply delicious.
Gooey rum-spiked vegan custard (eggnog or is it negnog as its vegan?), gets tossed with pillowy country loaf slathered in vegan coconut caramel, then topped with streusel and baked until bubbly and golden. You need 11 simple ingredients and 40 minutes to get this on your table. It’s that simple. This one is a flipping treat if I do say so myself, and it’s vegan! What a win!
Tis the season everybody! Get out the Christmas jumpers, baubles, tinsel and good cheer coz I am coming at you deliriously festive, and riddled with caffeine after a wild few weeks wrapping Christmas content, chef, and client work. I am here for good cheer, good food, and saying goodbye to 2020. Someone bring me a sugar cookie, or, you know, a whole bag.
This recipe gets better with age, so feel free to make it in advance and bake it just before serving. The bread really soaks up that custard a treat. Take it to your socially distanced office party, serve it for brunch or on Christmas morning, but really, if I’m honest I’m eating this from the pan in my pyjamas with my hair in a bun watching Schitt’s creek (for the second time, I’m addicted).
Fill up those cups, grab your stretchy pants, and join me for a whirlwind of good food and good times this December. We all need a little holiday cheer this year, and what better way to bring people together than delicious food.
