Mother's day is this weekend! There's nothing nicer you can do for the special mom in your life than make a delicious homemade breakfast. I personally love anything on the sweet side for breakfast, and you can never go wrong with baked French toast in my book. My family always makes a delicious apple cranberry french toast for Christmas morning. It is rich and decadent, but it also has a lot of butter and sugar.
I recently made this Berry Baked French Toast for a few friends for breakfast and it would be perfect for Mother's Day brunch. It is delicious and easy to make, plus it doesn't have any butter and only three tablespoons of sugar! You can customize this with any fruit you like. The original recipe called for peaches, but I thought it would be great with berries.
