3 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons Olvomaltine crunchy chocolate cream
1 teaspoon cinnamon
freshly grated nutmeg
1 load brioche bread
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup blueberries
½ cup granola
Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a blender, add 3 large eggs. To be on the safe side of not getting any egg shells in your dish, crack eggs first in bowl before adding to the blender, being careful to not get any small white pieces of shell! Add 1 cup of milk to the blender, followed by 2 tablespoons Olvomaltine Crunchy Chocolate Cream, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg to taste (approximately 1/2 teaspoon). Close lid to blender and pulse until ingredients are well incorporated. Set aside.
On a cutting board, cube a loaf of brioche bread into bite size pieces.
In a pie plate or 9x9 baking dish, butter the bottom and all sides, taking care not to miss any spots. Layer cubes of bread along the bottom of the dish in a single layer. Try not to overlap the bread as it will cause the dish to look uneven. Top the layer of bread with ½ cup of blueberries, followed by ½ cup of granola.
Take the milk mixture in the blender and slowly pour over the top of the bread, blueberries and granola in the dish. Make sure to soak each and every piece of bread in the dish so the flavoured are well distributed.
Place baking dish in oven and bake at 175 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes, keeping a close eye on it to make sure it turns a nice shade of golden brown. Even oven is different, so if you see it getting brown early, take it out and poke with a fork to test if it is done. You will be able to tell because the top will be crunchy and the inside will be nice and fluffy!
Remove from over and let cool for a couple minutes. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve warm right out of the oven! If you are having an extra special breakfast or brunch, this oven baked french toast recipe is amazing with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or extra berries sprinkled on top!
We hope you enjoy!
