VeganMoFo2012 Day 7: French Toast and Bakewell Tart

Hey everyone! Week one of VeganMoFo is over, hooray! I have really, really, really enjoyed food blogging again; catching up with bloggers, visiting all the blogs I used to as well as discovering new ones :D

Yesterday I caught up with Michelle at Apt. We had brunch and Cassie joined us, too. I was really keen to try one of the new gluten free options, French toast! Leigh warned me that the dipping liquid for the bread was soy but I really wanted to try something new for brekkie so I ordered it anyway.

To start I got a decaf long black to which I added some coffee creamer. I'm really not a coffee person any more as caffeine makes my heart race, I even drink decaf tea because I just can't handle regular black tea, but I have started enjoying a cup of decaf coffee every now and then.

And then this gorgeous plate was put in front of me

They use Schar Pan Carré for the bread which is such a good choice, it's my fave gf bread and is the most like regular old wheaty white bread and it was topped with a delicious berry compote and loads of maple syrup.

I also bought a slice of gf Bakewell tart to take away and I enjoyed it yesterday arvo with a cup of tea.

What's your favourite thing to make for brunch?

MoFo is such a good time! I have similar issues with caffeine, but I LOVE the taste of coffee so I can't help myself sometimes. I usually only have a little at a time, though. That french toast looks amazing, I want it.

That French toast looks great! I went to Apt for the first time last weekend and had the buckwheat pancakes, they were huge and delicious! And I just love being able to eat in a nice bookstore. said...

What awesome gf French toast! It looks fantastically decadent--perfect for a cup of coffee. (I'm with you too, don't drink caffeine anymore except occasionally.) Happy weekend!

Wow that is a hearty GF French toast. And I love the kittie mug.
What is my favorite thing for brunch? I like my husband's pumpkin GF pancakes.

I've enjoyed week one of all of the reading! Your posts have made me hungry! That french toast looks awesome. I am assuming that isn't a bread I can get around here in the states, but I wish it was! said...

oh my gosh that looks SO good!!

Joey said...

I completely misread your first paragraph and thought it said 'vegan mofo is over!' I thought you were going to stop blogging! Phew - very glad that's not the case!

I think favourite brunch would be some sort of scrambled tofu. I wouldn't mind a bit of that French toast though!

Caitlin said...

that french toast looks AMAZING! i am reeeally going to have to find scharr bread.

I'm impressed that you're blogging everyday! You're on fire! That's a very tasty looking brunch! I'd say my favorite brunch to make would be a tofu scramble or waffles. Both of them are good sleeping in foods!

Hannah said...

Oh my heavens, I've always thought I'm not a French Toast person, but that mega gorgeous creation (plus the fact that vegan would mean, well, no gross egg taste), is making me rethink my entire being.

Michelle said...

Oh my god that french toast! !! !!

Dawn said...

Whoa! That french toast looks amazing. Glad you were able to be served something so lovely. said...

I'm loving MoFo too, it's awesome to see so many posts from bloggers you love and to discover new bloggers at the same time.

The french toast looks epic & I feel ya on the coffee thing, decaf all the way!

ZuckerBaby said...

So glad that you enjoyed the French Toast and Bakewell Tart!! I'm really hoping to bring in some non-soy milks to the cafe - any recommendations?

Erin said...

The french toast looks fantastic, how great that they make it gf! I usually lean toward savory for brunch, like tofu scramble or grits or oats, but I DO love a good stack of pancakes.

MimicCreme! I have never tried their coffee creamer but their regular cream makes the best ice cream!

Bakewell tart is one of my favorite desserts. Mr. Wing-It and I always have Bakewell tart on our anniversary :)

That bakewell tart looks fabulous. I'd love to be able to get vegan french toast around my little corner of the world, it looks so decadent.

About Me

My Photo
Sydney, NSW, Australia
I went vegan in 2006 and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love baking cupcakes and reading books and often wish I could combine both activities without disastrous results. If I’m not in the kitchen you’ll find me photographing food, cuddling my three kittehs or re-watching my favourite tv shows over and over again with my boyfriend. Due to food sensitivities I don't eat gluten or soy and yes, vegan, gluten free and soy free food is still delicious! Twitter: CupcakeKitteh
