Lemon Blueberry French Toast


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for greasing
  • ½ cup maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 12 Pack King’s Hawaiian Dinner/Slider Rolls
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • Sea Salt


Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with butter, same size as the package of rolls.

Add the butter to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and whip on medium speed for 1 minute. With the mixer running, slowly pour in the maple syrup and 2 teaspoons of the vanilla bean paste and whip until completely combined. Transfer to a serving bowl and reserve.
Keeping the rolls intact, slice across the middle to create 1 large top and 1 large bottom roll. Place the bottom roll in the baking dish, then spread with 2 tablespoons of the maple butter. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and half of the blueberries and top with the top roll.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, sugar, eggs, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste and a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture over the rolls. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the foil, then continue to bake until golden brown, about 10 more minutes.
Spread the remaining maple butter on top and sprinkle with the remaining blueberries. Serve with additional maple syrup if desired..
