grandiose French toast

Yesterday I explained how I had an extra angel food cake hanging around after I had made one ahead for class and then had the kids make one too.  The question was, “What does one do with an entire extra angel food cake?”  I took to Pinterest for the answer and found out that one makes Angel Food Cake French Toast.  But of course! The recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens.

Angel Food Cake French Toast

1 purchased or homemade angel food cake, unfrosted
4 large eggs, slightly beaten
1  cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
Whipped cream
Maple syrup
Trimmed and sliced strawberries

Slice the angel food cake into twelve 1-inch thick wedges.

In a shallow dish combine eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla.

Soak wedges in the egg mixture for 1 minute per side.

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook 4 wedges at a time for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

To serve, stand slices back up in cake formation on a plate. Top and fill the center with whipped cream. Drizzle with maple syrup and top with strawberries.

Serve immediately.

Serves 12
