Ingredients

For the Egg Mixture:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2/3 C. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. amaretto liqueur
  • 1 Tbsp. Clabber Girl® Baking Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 8 oz loaf French bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices

For the Fruit:

  • 8 C. sliced ripe peaches, or two 16-ounce bags frozen sliced peaches, defrosted
  • 1/2 C. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Spice Islands® Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. Clabber Girl® Corn Starch

For the Topping:

  • 1 C. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 C. slivered or sliced almonds
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Coat a 13×9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray like Baker’s Joy®.
  2. To begin the French toast: In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, amaretto, baking powder, 2 Tbsp. sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Put the bread on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the bread and turn the slices until they are totally soaked.
  3. To prepare the fruit: Place the peaches, 1/2 C. sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch in the prepared baking dish, stir to coat the peaches. Cover with the soaked bread, wedging it in to fit.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  6. Topping: In a small bowl, mix together 1 C. sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the bread and top with the almonds. Brush with some or all of the melted butter and bake until golden and the peaches are bubbling around the sides of the dish, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and sift powdered sugar over the top. To serve, lift out the toast with a spatula or tongs, place on individual plates, and spoon the fruit sauce on top.
  8. Diva Variation: Substitute 2 pints of fresh blueberries or two 16-ounce bags of frozen blueberries for the peaches, or use a combination of blueberries and peaches. Raspberries and peaches are also wonderful, and so are mixed berries.
