What a great french toast recipe dienia. It was so quick and easy to make. The results were amazing. The custard was nice and thick, resulting in a beautiful light and fluffy french toast. The taste was excellent, the hubby ate his with warmed maple syrup. I turned mine into a decadent treat by adding sliced cantaloupe, blueberries, vanilla ice cream and cassis syrup. It was splendid. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Made for CQ2 - Quebec - A Day of Traditional Cooking Challenge.

This is a very tasty breakfast item. It is a little difficult to move soaked bread to the pan but the results are delicious. Made for Culinary Quest 2.
