Vanilla Cream French Toast

(4 servings)

  • 8 slices of French Bread (the thicker the better)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or whipping cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • butter or margarine for frying
In a medium shallow bowl, mix together the cream, eggs, sugar and vanilla.

Dip bread slices into egg mixture, coating both sides generously.

On a griddle or skillet at medium heat, melt butter or margaring and cook each slice until both sides are golden-brown. You can place completed French Toast slices on a serving plate in an oven set to 100 degrees -- to keep finished slices warm as you cook the others.

Serve with either butter and maple syrup; or seasonal fruit and whipped cream (I love bananas!)

This is a perfect breakfast-in-bed thing to serve if you want to make sure you get some sugar from your sugar:)

Mr Breakfast would like to thank susan for this recipe.
