Cranberry Cream French Toast

My mom makes killer french toast. We grew up eating it often on her mornings off. I have very warm and fuzzy memories about mornings with french toast. Those memories and my mom’s yellow kitchen inspired this post. Thanks mom. =)

This french toast is crazy decadent and crazy delicious. You start with thick fresh bread, spread some homemade cranberry sauce on it, and drizzle (or smother) with sweet cashew cream sauce.

Ingredients for french toast:

  • 6 thick slices of bread
  • 1 cup of nondairy milk (I used coconut milk)
  • 2 Tablespoons silken tofu
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • Pine of salt
  • Large dash of cinnamon
  • Oil for frying


  1. Whisk together the milk, tofu, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. Coat the bottom of the pan in oil and heat it up.
  3. Soak both sides of the bread in the milk mixture.
  4. Carefully put the slice of bread in the the pan and cook until light brown. Flip to cook the other side.
  5. Repeat with all the slices of bread.
  6. Drench with cashew cream (recipe below) and cranberry sauce.

Ingredients for cashew cream:

  • 2 cups raw cashews, rinsed well under cold water
  • 1-2 cups vanilla flavored nondairy milk


  1. Soak the cashews in water overnight.
  2. Drain the cashews and run them under water.
  3. Put the cashews in a blender and pour in enough milk to cover the cashews by about an inch.
  4. Blend until smooth.

Melanie - I love you’re incredible photographs! The food looks deliciously appetizing too! I started my own healthy food blog around six months ago and I’m passionate about it. Do you have any advice for a beginner blogger?

Anjo Angela Lim - I surf about half a bajillion sites a day (true data analysis, I swear) but I hardly spend any time commenting (I’m a terrible netizen). But I just have to say your photography, skills, tutorials…etc, are quite extraordinary and awe-inspiring. Second picture down? …No words. Beautiful.

vkrees - Katie: I start from scratch! Everything is fake. I wish I knew of a room that looked like this!

Katie - I’m so curious – when you do shoots like this, where you have a whole room involved, do you use an existing room (i.e. you happened to find a room with the perfect yellow wallpaper) or do you set up a fake room, wallpaper and all, for the shoot area? Would love to know if you don’t mind sharing!

isachandra - Yay, gorgeous! It reminds me of a movie from the 20s.

Caitlin - STUNNING! i grew up not liking french toast at all, but i’m pretty sure i’d go crazy for this version. and now i want a yellow kitchen ;)

Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar - This is so unbelievably lovely!

Jes - The romantic props/lighting in this shoot work really well! Maybe more to evoke a grandmotherly feeling, but perfect for such a warm, inviting dish like french toast. And speaking of which, holy cow your french toast if fancy-awesome!
