Oh wow! I am excited about the responses from my last Spring Cleaning post (heart and soul). The pictures I am receiving are amazing and just so sincere! Keep them coming. I’ll post them either Monday or Tuesday.
Now since this weekend has been full of “soul searching,” I thought we might need to end it with some “soul” food. And no I don’t mean Southern Style dishes. I mean what your HEART and SOUL crave. When you get up on Sunday morning, what is that one dish that makes you your soul smile?Is it Sunday’s Pot Roast dinner with the family? What about brunch your with your best friend? Or maybe even a peaceful warm breakfast in solitude?
For me, my soul food is breakfast and on Sunday morning I love to get up early, spend some time doing my devotional, then make a delicious breakfast for me and the hubs. oh and lets not forget the endless cups of coffee. hehe.
GF Baked Cinnamon Raisin Cashew French Toast with Honey Almond Custard (topping)
- Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread (I use Udi’s bread)
- 1 egg or 1/3 cup egg whites
- 1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 tbsp honey
- cinnamon (to taste)
- small handful or less of raw cashews
- fresh fruit to garnish
- almond butter and/or peanut flour to use for the topping.
Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly oil a baking dish/cookie sheet and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, honey, and milk. Whisk together. Coat each piece of bread in your egg batter and then place on baking dish or cookie sheet. Spread your cashews on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip over bread and broil for another 1-2 minutes. Be careful you don’t burn the cashews. While the French toast is baking, take your left over batter (eggs, milk, honey) and microwave for 30 seconds. This will make a nice custard like texture. Add in 1 spoonful of melted almond butter and stir until smooth. This will be your topping. Once the bread is baked, add your honey almond topping and fresh fruit. Drizzle with syrup or honey. Now watch your soul smile.
So my friends, what is it? What is your “soul food?”
Cheers to a Happy Sunday!
