French Toast that will make you giggle.

Just ask my dear friend Connie. Every time I prepare it for her she giggles after each bite. I love watching her eat it. I made it for D this a.m. for the first time. He swears this is the first time he’s ever had French toast (other than fast food). He was impressed. It certainly is a mouth pleaser. It’s easy to make too.

Most of the time I soak the bread overnight. I didn’t do that this time and it was just as tasty if not more so. You have to use a crusty bread for it to really sing so I buy an Italian loaf usually. It’s crusty and dense yet with air pockets to help absorb the liquid. I also used real cream today instead of milk and half and half. Wow. What an amazing difference that made. So here’s what you’re need.

1 loaf of bread or about six thick slices depending upon how many you’re serving,                1 cup heavy cream,                                                                                                                              1 egg,                                                                                                                                                1/2 tsp. vanilla,                                                                                                                                1/4 tsp almond extract,                                                                                                                1/2 tsp. cinnamon,                                                                                                                          1/2 tsp. fresh grated nutmeg.

Whisk all liquid together. Butter a baking dish and line the dish with the bread. Butter the top of the bread then pour liquid over it. Turn the bread so that it’s well absorbed. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with REAL maple syrup. None of that fake stuff please. It’s also good with fresh berries and bananas.
