Now last week I took a mini-vacation, had lots of fun, and ate some good food. I have enjoyed going back to a normal schedule and eating healthily at home again, but it did not take long for me to want something sweet.
Breakfast is sometimes just an excuse to eat dessert as a meal, and I am all for it. Sure, you could eat some eggs and bacon and ham, but really I just want something sweet. Pancakes, Waffles, French toast, cake. Give me anything sweet, and I am a happy girl.
Jessica at How Sweet It Is had the genius idea of subbing in angel food cake for bread in French toast. I was so there.
This dish makes no qualms about the fact that you are eating dessert for breakfast, and I love it. Really, it is a genius idea to dip cake in French toast batter and fry it up.
And if you eat breakfast for dinner, then you basically get to eat dessert for dinner. Winning.
ANGEL FOOD CAKE FRENCH TOAST
Idea from How Sweet it Is
1 angel food cake.
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2-3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Berries, for serving
Whipped Cream, for serving
Maple Syrup, for serving
Slice the angel food cake into 2-2 1/2 inch slices.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and salt together.
Heat a griddle over medium high heat. Grease pan with nonstick spray or butter. I find nonstick spray is better works better for an even coating. Dip 3-4 slices on angel food cake quickly in your batter. Place on griddle. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Flip and cook another 3-5 minutes. Repeat with remaining angel food cake.
Serve warm with berries, whipped cream, or syrup.
