Lemon Sour Dough French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Syrup

I LOVE french toast! There is something about the smell of it cooking on a Saturday morning…still in your pj’s, coming down the stairs with your slippers on, a cozy blanket welcoming you as you wait for this delicious treat. For some reason it makes me smile. It brings out the kid in me. It makes me think of family.

I thought it would be fun the other day to add a little twist to our normal recipe…some fresh lemon, along with some homemade syrup. The combination of lemon and strawberry…wonderful!

This french toast was delicious! And I will honestly say that even without the lemon, IΒ love this recipe more than any other IΒ have ever had.

So to my Fiesta Friday family…stay in your pj’s, curl up with a fleece blanket, smell the aroma of the french toast cooking, and enjoy a big plate!

  • 1 Lemon for Fresh Lemon Juice

Ingredients for Syrup:

  • Combine the strawberries with the amount of honey you want in a food processor to make the syrup.
  • Combine eggs, almond milk, honey, vanilla, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl.
  • Grease a frying pan.
  • Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture, covering both sides.
  • Cook on each side until slightly browned.

    • Hehehe….glad you liked getting to stay in your pj’s! πŸ™‚ I have been following your blog, my friend, for a long time, and then all of a sudden it said I wasn’t. Weird huh? Anyway, back to following again! πŸ™‚ Thanks Martina! πŸ™‚


      • Well.. if you’re anything like me, then I am not surprised. I am so impatient with my computer that I keep clicking stuff all the time (and stuff I shouldn’t) so I am sure I have followed (on purpose) and unfolled you (not on purpose) a few times. πŸ˜‰

  2. Obviously, I can’t follow this recipe exactly with the egg and all, BUT I never thought of lemon and french toast going together. I’m going to have to give this a try, once I get the french toast bit down. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing, Happy FF, AND (most importantly) have a wonderful weekend!
