When it comes to making French toast for brunch, the devil is in the details.

For French toast with a genuinely gourmet flavor, I love using thick slices of sourdough bread. Bump up the batter with a pinch (or two) of ground spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. Then sprinkle the finished french toast slices with powdered sugar.
For the perfect wow factor, add a generous helping of fresh seasonal berries.
These simple steps will help you can make a seriously exquisite French toast experience for your next brunch.

Vegan Brunch Recipes + Fruity Pancakes
- 1 flax egg
- 2 medium bananas
- 1 ½ cups plant-based milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons vegan butter
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- 2 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup raspberries (see note)
- Prepare the flax egg. Set aside.
- Blend the bananas, milk, vinegar, butter, and agave nectar in a blender or food processor. Pulse in short bursts until the bananas are broken into smaller bits.
- Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
- Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture and stir until there are no large flour clumps in the bowl. Allow the batter to sit for 10 minutes.
- Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Spray some vegetable spray, and pour the batter in 1/4 cup rounds in the heated pan. Top pancakes with frozen raspberry pieces (whole pieces can be too big for pancakes, so cut them in half or add pieces of the fruit).
- Cook pancakes for 3 to 4 minutes until bubbles appear on the top of the pancakes. Then flip pancakes and cook on the other side for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown.
- Transfer cooked pancakes to a pan lined with parchment paper. To keep pancakes warm, place the pan in an oven preheated to 200°F while you finish making pancakes from the rest of the batter.
- Serve pancakes with vegan butter, sliced bananas, fresh fruit, and maple syrup.
