This vegan baked french toast is a combination of a vegan blueberry french toast and a bread pudding. It only takes about 20 minutes to throw together, so it’s a perfect recipe to prepare for a group.
I recently made this for Easter brunch using my vegan brioche recipe and it was very well received! I wanted to make something french-toast-y but didn’t want to repeat the Vegan Instant Pot French Toast that I made last year. Mostly because that recipe uses an egg replacement and now I am into making recipes that don’t use any egg replacements.
With this one, there is not egg replacer necessary. The sugar and soy milk (you can use any plant based milk!) do the work of binding the bread pieces together during baking.
Vegan Blueberry French Toast
- Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Grease a large 9×13" baking dish with vegan butter. Tear brioche buns into pieces and place them in the baking dish.
- Combine soy milk, sugar, and the rest of the vegan butter in a microwave-safe dish and microwave about 30 seconds to melt the butter. Mix in the cinnamon and stir until the sugar is dissolved, then pour mixture over the bread pieces.
- Use a spoon to press bread down to absorb the liquid. Keep pressing all over until all of the bread is moistened. Spread blueberries over the top.
- Bake for 15 minutes, uncovered. Allow to cool 5 minutes before serving. Serve with maple syrup or vegan whipped cream. You can optionally top it off with a dusting of powdered sugar.
