Recipe review: Crock Pot French Toast | The Cake Eccentric’s Blog

image

I found this crock-pot french toast recipe on Pinterest last night, and I had to try it. What is there not to like about a crock pot breakfast?

In short, this was an epic win. Everyone has seconds! We served it with some sliced fresh fruit.

My substitutions: I used our “soft whole wheat” bread since that’s what we had; I used apple butter instead of sugar; I added a half tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg (I think it could have been spicier, but that’s just me). Will definitely make again. And there are leftovers!

“Magic wand” French toast

KG and I went to her school’s book fair last night. She was very into every book that was pink, or about princesses. I parleyed that interest into getting a new cookbook for us to use together:

It is pretty much real food and real cooking, despite the princesses. This morning, KG looked through the cookbook and picked out “Magic wand” French toast from the Cinderella section. Amazingly, we had all the ingredients on hand! The French toast is served with a tea cup of orange/cinnamon/honey dipping sauce, which we all enjoyed… and none of my fancy cups broke, which is pretty miraculous. This was a definite win… W was so upset that we ran out that he cried. Will make again!
