Vanilla Pound Cake French Toast

We love making French Toast for breakfast.  I few weeks ago I tried a new recipe using the same egg mixture that I always do but instead of using French bread or Texas Toast I used pound cake!  YES, pound cake!  It was so amazing!  And just like "normal" French Toast it was a super easy meal to create! I might never enjoy French toast any other way.

6.  Each side should cook for at least 4 minutes or until golden brown.  

7.  Serve warm and topped with whipped cream and strawberries.  In my opinion, no syrup is needed!

This recipe makes a good amount of French toast and it does reheat pretty well so it really is a great brunch recipe that would feed a crowd.  

You could also mix up this recipe a bit by trying other toppings like blueberries or even some sliced bananas.  Enjoy!!

  5. This recipe look fabulous! You had me with your title. This is such an amazing combination. I would keep it as it is. How can you go wrong with strawberries?! I would try peaches, blueberries or raspberries for other members in my family, but I would be Team Strawberries for this dish!
