The Ultimate Brunch Board is a super-sized board filled with a few tasty breakfast breads with some dairy-free alternatives. 


For the pancakes:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

¾ teaspoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

¾ cup milk

½ cup vanilla yogurt (or one 5.3 oz container)

1 egg

1 tablespoon melted butter

For the French Toast:

4 slices Brioche Bread (about 1 in. thick)

1 cup + ½ cup Trader Joe's Toasted Coconut Granola

1 egg

¼ cup heavy cream

½ cup milk

pinch of salt

For the Biscuits:

1 cup self-rising flour

4 tablespoons cold butter

¾ cup buttermilk


For the pancakes:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl; mix to incorporate. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add in the egg and melted butter and stir gently. Slowly add in milk and yogurt, stirring from the inside out until all ingredients have been incorporated together. Do not over mix, small lumps should be left in the batter. Cook on a griddle or in a pan until both sides are golden.

For the French Toast:

  1. Slice bread into 1 inch thick slices. Combine egg and salt in a bowl; whisk to combine. Add heavy cream and milk to the mixture, whisking to combine. Place a slice of bread into the bowl and allow the bread to soak up liquid for 3-4 seconds, repeat on opposite side.
  2. Place bread into granola and flip to coat both sides. Begin cooking on a griddle or in a pan. Repeat this process until each slice has been coated with both mixtures. Cook all slices until golden on both sides.

For the biscuits:

  1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees. Place flour in a bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut cold butter into flour until small pieces of butter can be seen throughout. Add in buttermilk. Start with 1/2 cup and then increase if needed. Amount of buttermilk needed could vary depending on climate. Using a spoon, cut the amount of dough desired for each biscuit and form into a roughly shaped ball. Check to make sure there is an even amount of dough distributed amongst the biscuits. Drop each biscuit onto a baking sheet. Bake biscuits for 15 minutes or until they have deepened slightly in color. 


You can use regular dairy products for any of these recipes. If interested in the particular non-dairy product I used, see photos

The amount of buttermilk can vary slightly depending on the climate. Start with 1/2 cup then increase the amount a little at a time until dry ingredients have been fully incorporated.
