Instructions:

  1. Thaw blueberries (if necessary). Set aside 2 tbsp (30 mL) of butter; place remaining butter in food processor fitted with metal blade. Add 1 cup (250 mL) blueberries, sugar and orange rind. Blend mixture until very smooth; re-pack into tub. Set aside. (Or, mash blueberries, sugar and rind in bowl; whip in butter using a hand mixer until smooth.)
  2. Whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup and vanilla. In large non-stick skillet, melt some of the reserved, unflavoured butter over medium heat. Working in batches, dip baguette slices into egg mixture and transfer to skillet; cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden. Repeat with remaining bread and egg mixture, adding more butter to pan as needed.
  3. Arrange French toast on a warm serving platter. Top each slice with a little blueberry butter and sprinkle with a few of the reserved blueberries.
  •  Make ahead: French toast can be reserved for up to 1 day in refrigerator and reheated in a warm oven before serving.
