      In a medium saucepan, combine fresh berries with 1/4 cup sugar and the water and bring to a simmer.
    3. 3
      Cook over moderate heat , stirring occasionally, until the berries have softened and released their juices and the sugar has dissolved completely, about 8 minutes.

      In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the heavy cream, the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon, ginger and allspice.
    5. 5

    6. 6
      Heat a large cast-iron griddle over moderate heat and lightly butter it.

      Working in batches, dip half of the brioche slices in the cream and egg mixture, turning them once, until the slices are moistened but not soggy.
    8. 8
      Transfer the soaked brioche slices to the griddle and cook them over moderate heat, turning once, until they are golden on both sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes.
    9. 9
      Transfer the finished French toast to a baking sheet, cover loosely with foil and keep warm in the oven while you soak and cook the remaining brioche slices.
    10. 10

      Great recipe! I substituted the All Spice with vanilla, but may opt for cardamom next time around. The compote and creme fraiche mix was perfect! I halved the recipe (3 servings), and ended up with barely 5 slices of bread worth. I make this again.

      YUM!!!! I am soo full! I actuallyused a 4lb bag of frozen veggies so I can use the leftover berries for ice cream topping. Except there isn't much left. :o Love the flavor from the spices in the egg. I made creme fraiche by combning 1c sour cream, 2TB brown sugar & 1/2c heavy cream as per directions somewhere. Made for Veggie Swap 4/10!

      Oh la la...a delicious breakfast treat. It takes a little longer to make than the usual french toast, but it is definitely worth it. I used strawberries and blueberries and for the creme fraiche, I used Very Easy Creme Fraiche. The spices were perfect. Thanks for sharing this delightful recipe, LifeIsGood. Made for ZWT5. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.
