Red Clover Blossom French Toast with Toasted Coconut & Pecans

March 6th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Bread, breakfast, Dessert

The other night I was really craving something with a bit more of a ‘junk food’ taste, but with the weather outside being -45°C I really didn’t feel like braving the cold to grab something to eat and I also didn’t want to pay for delivery, so I looked through an empty fridge to see what I could make to satisfy some cravings and wouldn’t take too long to make. I then remembered I had a bottole Red Clover Blossom Syrup that I received as a gift and I’ve been wanting to use for a while. The creation to combine a craving & this unique syrup? Red Clover Blossom French Toast topped with Toasted Coconut & Pecans.

French toast itself is pretty basic and easy to make. Combine the below ingredients in a low dish and whisk until smooth. Dip in a slice of whole wheat bread (or any bread you’d like) then cook on a frying pan on low heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until the bread turns a golden brown.

Top your french toast with roasted coconut, toasted pecans and a splash of Red Clover Blossom Syrup to add to the nutty, full flavours.


(I’m also sure some of you are wondering what Red Clover Blossom Syrup tastes like: it’s a light, fragrant and nutty tasting syrup. I would definitely recommend ordering some of this – you can order off the Bedard Creek Acre’s website. I also know it can be found at Farmer’s Markets across Western Canada.)
