Caramelized Sourdough French Toast with Fondant Chocolate And Pomegranate Seeds

sourdough french toast

Sourdough french toast means toast you can pack with as many flavors as you like. We want them crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and you can have both of these even in a sourdough french toast.

This toast requires no milk—all you need to get the crispiness in only one well-beaten egg.

As I am a toast lover and often a lazy cook 🙈, let me remind you of these pizza toasts veggies and other vegan-friendly breakfast toasts ideas you can enjoy instead of cooking other things.

Today I will share the combos I like to include in my morning french toast, and I promise the changes I made will make this toast the best kick-start of the day.

  • busy people

It comes with a complete package you must include in your french toast recipes collection.

Caramelized Sourdough French Toast Ingredients Are…

sourdough french toast ingredients
  • First things first, two slices of sourdough bread.
  • Fondant chocolate. I used a 80% cocoa chocolate, but any of your favorite chocolate will work.
  • A whole range egg. The fresher the better.
  • One banana.
  • A handful of hazelnuts.
  • Yoghurt. We need probiotics in the morning, right?
  • Pomegranate seeds. Now pomegranates are in season, make good use of them.
  • Butter, not salted.
  • Powdered sugar and cinnamon, just a pinch.

Sourdough French Toast Sandwich Tips

Unlike other toasts, we will try to make this one look like a sandwich because we will put chocolate in it. So, can we call it a sourdough french toast chocolate sandwich? 😄

Tip 1. Please do not soak the sides of the bread equally. Soak less the insides, where you add the chocolate, and let the outsides soak longer as they will get toasted.

Tip 2. Caramelize the french toast by spreading powdered sugar on the top of the bread and toast it one more time. Be careful when flipping the sides though, it is scorching!

Tip 3. Careful when choosing the banana. Using a ripe banana may not be the best choice in this case. Fry until they get golden brown.

Bananas tend to get real soggy after getting fried, so pick one that is not already tender. Put hazelnuts into the same pan, so they release the flavors and cook faster.

Tip 4. Use the fruit you like. I see berries make a good combo with french toast, but try including the seasonal fruits instead. They are perfect.

Can I Freeze It?

Sure! Use an airtight bag and put it in the freezer.

Let me tell you, though, that the taste will not be as magical as it is when you cook it last minute with fresh ingredients.

In case you want to reheat it, baking would be a better option. Please put it in the oven so you will have a general cooking and a slower caramelization.

I suggest 8 minutes of baking at 180C (356F) in the oven or microwave. Otherwise, toasting would still be alright.
