French Toast with Curd and Blackberry Jam

French #Toast with #Curd and Blackberry #Jam

This French Toast with Curd and Blackberry Jam will be a perfect surprise at a weekend breakfast! If you are a breakfast person and always in search for a new recipe for big Sunday breakfasts, it will be a fantastic alternative to your ordinary breakfast. I made a nice twist on our regular French toast.

I always start to think of the breakfast menu of the next day at nights. As we have a big breakfast on Sundays, I make the plan of what to make at night on Saturdays. Your table must be quite crowded for a typical Turkish style breakfast. Just a piece of cake or smoothie is never enough for us! We have several types of cheese, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, jams, honey, butter, nuts, pastries for breakfast and the rest is up to your creativity. We have all these on the table in the morning even if we don’t taste them all. I guess the logic behind this is that we want to eat with our eyes first for a good start! Then rest of the day will be better and with smaller meals.

Everyone loves French toast, right? It makes your morning more fun and when you have french toasts at breakfast, you feel that it’s worth waking up!

Kids love it more! Most kids are not so willing to eat in the morning, and you should find the best way to have them join your breakfast joy. Nutella could be a good choice, it makes breakfast tolerable for kids, but is it the best food for breakfast? For me, the best food is the food you yourself prepare. This French Toast with Curd and Blackberry Jam can help you make breakfast more attractive to your kids!

I always love to combine curd with jams –generally in reddish colors. I love the combination of white and red, purple or pink! Besides this, you get a tasty result; sweetness of jam completes the mild flavor of curd in an excellent way. So why not top French toasts with this so appetizing combination?

French Toast with Curd and Blackberry Jam is a divine breakfast food with a little crunchiness outsides the toasts, softer inside. And feeling the combination of mild and sweet flavors on the top when you bite makes you think that your day will be a beautiful one!

I used blackberry jam for this recipe, but you can also make it with Strawberry Jam, Black Mulberry Jam or cherry jam.


Well, I have great news and I must share it with you before it’s too late! I thought this sweet and festive breakfast would be a great post to tell you that I’m 30-week pregnant! We are so excited and have already started to buy things for our small boy! Hope our son will love what we cook in the future!


It’s said that pregnancy makes you more melancholic and you are more likely to cry during your pregnancy, but it is the opposite for me! Our son makes me a more cheerful and an optimistic person! Hope I feel the same until birth!
