  • 6 1-inch-thick slices whole-grain bread
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 6 sliced medium (or 8 small) fresh peaches
  • 1/2 cup pecans - chopped
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter - melted
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Spread a layer of cream cheese on top of each slice of bread. Arrange peach slices on top.

In a large bowl, gently beat the eggs. Add the milk, buttermilk, maple syrup, melted butter, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and Kahlua. Whisk to combine. Pour over bread and peaches. (The liquid should come to at least the tops of the bread slices.)

Sprinkle the chopped pecans over peaches.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until bread is no longer soggy and just beginning to brown on the edges.

Note: You may also let assembled french toast sit in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight before baking.

This peachy breakfast recipe is from the Strawberry Creek Inn in Idyllwild, California. For best results, fresh peaches are a must.

Very flavorful! Spray pan with a cooking spray to prevent sticking. Thick bread is a must to prevent being soggy. Pecans really top it off! Will make again!

Just okay as is. To make it better, saute the peaches with butter, honey or maple syrup before putting them on the bread. Mix some of the peaches into the cream cheese.

The peach french toast was great! It needed to cook longer than 30 min and bread was still somewhat soggy however, the taste was over the top. I will make this one again.
