French toast

I never understood, what was so special about French toast. For me, it was only some (stale) bread dunked in eggs, then fried in a pan.

But then a gardening friend stayed over a few years ago. And she made French toast for us. With TONS and I mean TONS of sliced fruit. Piled on top of the crispy fried bread. And a good drizzle of real Canadian maple syrup. My goodness, that was GOOD!
We didn't drizzle with maple syrup, but topped the big fruit pile with a dollop of cream.Needless to say, it was delicious! :)

I reckon it has to be homemade bread, cut thickly so it is brown on the outside and spongy on the inside....yum!

Hazel - that's exactly right! :)

Robyn - just go and have some! With plenty of fruit. No guilt! :)

Umatji - every reason to drool! I might even have to make another batch very soon. Oh yes, definitely frozen berries from our garden. :) We can splurge now, as the berry patch looks promising!
