This is a simple and exceptional breakfast, but try it anytime you have a fresh peach to celebrate.
  • 4 slices of thick bakery white bread
  • 2 fresh local peaches, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup crème fraiche
  • Substitute: ¼ cup sour cream thinned with 1 tablespoon milk
  1. Preheat the broiler of your oven.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and then add the sugar and cinnamon. Stir to combine and remove from the heat. The mixture will not be smooth.
  3. Place a wire rack onto a cookie sheet and place the bread on the rack. Broil on the middle oven rack for one minute and then remove it from the oven being careful that the wire rack doesn’t slide off the cookie sheet.
  4. When the bread can be safely handled, flip each slice and spread ¼ of the sugar mixture to the uncooked side of each piece of bread. Place the bread under the broiler and cook until the edges of the bread are browned and the sugar mixture is molten and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool until it can be handled. The sugar mixture is dangerously hot at the moment it comes out of the oven.
  5. Top each slice of toast with peach slices and a dollop of crème fraiche. Serve immediately.
