french toast with berry butter

i got the idea for this from the pioneer woman blog... for a little different version and greater explanation on how to make this check out her post.  it is really yummy!

my french toast:
4 slices of whole wheat bread
2 eggs
1/2 cup half and half (or milk)
splash of vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
lite syrup (or regular)
powdered sugar

whisk eggs, half and half, vanilla, and cinnamon together and dip the bread into the egg mixture. grill on a nonstick griddle sprayed with cooking spray.  cook both sides until golden brown.  top with butter,  syrup (not like the lite syrup makes this dish any's just what i usually keep in the house) and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

that is how i have always made french toast.  after today, however, i don't know if i will enjoy french toast without berry butter.  it is so, so good...

berry butter:
2 sticks unsalted butter (room temp)
2 sticks salted butter (room temp)
1 pint blackberries
1 pint raspberries

in mixer, whisk together 2 sticks of butter (one of each kind) until light and fluffy.  add washed blackberries and mix for just a few second...just until the berries begin to break apart.  put berry butter mixture on a piece of plastic wrap and gently roll up into a log.  wrap with a piece of foil and twist the ends.  refrigerate over night...or place in the freezer for 30 minutes.  repeat to make raspberry butter.
