My crunchy blueberry french toast recipe is a combination of a recipe the chef at the Shangri- la in Boracay ,Philipines shared with me that I slightly remixed. While in the Boracay on holiday, I had the best french toast I’ve ever tasted in my life! It was so delicious I had to personally ask the chef to share with me all the ingredients that were in the batter, I know that flavor could not just be eggs,milk and vanilla . So keep in mind… he shared all of the ingredients not measurements. So through trial and error I was able to find a nice flavor balance. Also his version was made with raisin challah bread, for this recipe I opted to use plain challah.
So I guess the old saying “make lemonade out of lemons” was the theme as we set out to visit the Rock of Gibraltar while in Spain a couple months back. We stayed in Malaga, which is about a 2 hour drive to the border of the UK where the rock is located. The excitement was building as we got closer and closer because this was a childhood dream of H’s so he couldn’t wait to actually visit the place that he said one day he would. He never imagined in his wildest dreams that we would be within driving distance to the real thing.
