If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you know that I absolutely love cooking and creating recipes, especially now in our new home and kitchen. I’ve made several recipes with Truvia® sweetener products, from dinner recipes to baked goods, even delicious drinks and cocktails! What I love so much about using Truvia® is that their products are sweetened with stevia leaf extract, which helps reduce the amount of sugar in the recipes that my family and I love.
I thought it would be fun to have my readers decide what to make next using Truvia®, so I did a little crowdsourcing and one of my readers suggested that I make one of my mom’s favorite recipes. I loved this idea, so I decided on her famous Créme Brûlée French Toast.
My mom makes this recipe pretty much every holiday, but I especially love it when we are hosting family and friends for brunch! And of course, no brunch is complete without a little boozy goodness (for the adults), so I decided I’d also make a delicious Strawberry and Peach Sangria, that I promise you will be making all summer long!

I made both of these recipes with Truvia ® Sweet Complete® Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener and I love it because it has zero calories per serving andsweetens and measures cup-for-cup to sugar, so it’s easy to substitute in any recipe.
I hope you’ll watch my video and give both of these sweet brunch recipes a try. They’re delicious and so easy to make and I think you’ll enjoy their flavors. Cheers to your next summer brunch!

In another bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Pour mixture over bread. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the butter-sweetener mixture is bubbling in the bottom of the pan. Sift Truvia® Sweet Complete® Confectioners Sweetener on top if desired. Enjoy!
Peach & Strawberry Sangria Recipe
