Place bread on a baking sheet. (I use foil to cover mine because I don't like scrubbing off any spills.) Spread batter over the bread and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, until bread is lightly browned.

My plan was to share a post with these adorable heart-shaped cakes I made with a raspberry-cream cheese filling.

Only I can’t find the photos.

Seriously. Can’t find them. I know I took them. Know I downloaded them. Just can’t remember where I saved them and can’t find them!

Oh, the tragedy of it all.

So today you get French Toast. Which isn’t all bad, especially if you want a tasty breakfast to serve your sweetheart. This recipe is super easy, fairly quick and very yummy. Enjoy!

Ingredients for French Toast

 

Beat the egg until it is smooth, then add cream and vanilla. Mix well.

 

Stir in cinnamon and milk.

 

Slice French Bread about one-inch thick and dip into batter, coating both sides. I like to use bread that is slightly frozen to keep from getting "soggy" with batter.

 

Place slices on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet. Lightly spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.

 

Drizzle with syrup, lightly dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

 

French Toast

1 egg

1/4 cup cream

1/2 cup milk

1 heaping tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

French Bread  – 6 slices

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Beat egg then add cream and vanilla. Mix well. Add milk and cinnamon, mixing well. Slice bread into one-inch thick slices (slightly frozen works best) and dip into batter. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. Lightly coat foil with non-stick spray then place slices on foil. Bake at 350 10-15 minutes until edges are nicely browned. I usually turn the bread over about half-way through the baking cycle so it gets toasted on both sides.

Serve immediately with syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar. For extra Valentine’s fun, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out batter pats for the toast. It will make your sweetie smile!
