Before starting, gather all required tools. Cut pound cake into six 1-inch slices. Zest, then juice lemon. Whisk together eggs, 3 tbsp milk and 1/8 tsp salt in a large bowl.
Heat a small pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter, then swirl the pot until melted. Add blueberry jam, maple syrup, thyme sprigs and 1 tbsp lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and slightly thickened, 2-3 min. Remove the pot from heat. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don’t burn!) Transfer to a plate.
Heat the same pan over medium. While the pan heats, carefully place pound cake slices in egg mixture one by one. (TIP: Let pound cake sit in the egg mixture for 5-10 seconds to allow it to soak up egg mixture!) When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp butter, then swirl the pan until melted. Add pound cake slices. Cook until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. (NOTE: Don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook French toast in batches if necessary, using 1 tbsp butter per batch. Carefully wipe the pan clean between batches.) Remove the pan from heat.
Add cream and lemon zest to another large bowl. Using a hand whisk or electric mixer, beat until stiff peaks form, 1-2 min. Remove and discard thyme sprigs from blueberry syrup. Divide pound cake French toast between plates, then drizzle blueberry-thyme syrup over top. Dollop whipped cream over top, then sprinkle with toasted almonds
