“The main portion of this recipe was found in the June/July 1996 issue of Taste of Home. I had made it three different ways before everyone in the family was happy with it. I have posted the recipe the way we like it, except i always double the syrup recipe (which can be made ahead, refrigerated and reheated). The original recipe called only for blueberries and a choice of using either honey OR maple syrup in the french toast. The French toast recipe goes together in about 20 minutes and then refrigerates for 8 hours or overnight. It makes for an easy morning when put together the night before.”
