If you like French toast, you will love this fruit-topped version.

Simple but so delicious, it all starts with toasted brioche bread dipped in Grand Marnier syrup. Topped with an almond and flax seed frosting, to keep it somewhat healthy, and finished with plumcot and apricot slices on top, it is nearly impossible to stop after just once slice.

With stone fruit season in full swing, I highly recommend whipping this up for your next breakfast or brunch!

Plumcot & Brioche Toast 


For the Fruit:

  • 6-8 slices of day-old brioche, about 1/2″ thick
  • 2-3 plumcots, sliced
  • 3-4 apricots, sliced

For the Grand Marnier Simple Syrup:

  • 2 Tbsp. Grand Marnier
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

For the Almond Cream:

  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch fine salt
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten


  1.  In a small saucepan, heat sugar and water until sugar has dissolved. Cool to room temperature before adding the Grand Marnier. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix softened butter, powdered sugar, salt and almond flour with a spatula. Blend in vanilla extract and egg until incorporated
  3. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Set rack in the middle of the oven, preheat to 375˚F.
  4. Place simple syrup in a bowl that’s big enough to soak a brioche slice. Quickly dip brioche slice into the syrup. Allow excess to drip off and place onto the prepared pan. Repeat with the rest of the brioche.
  5. Spread a thin layer of almond cream onto the soaked brioche. Arrange plumcot and apricot slices on top. Sprinkle top with thinly-sliced almonds, if desired. Repeat with the rest of the brioche slices.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the almond cream is slightly golden around the edges.
  7. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.

By Lauren Schulte
Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
