I love breakfast food.
But I don’t particularly like eating breakfast during breakfast…
I know weird right.
I just don’t really like starting my day off with a heavy, buttery and about a days worth of calories consumed all in one meal.
If I do, I know I’m pretty much not going to achieve anything that day because after a big breakfast all I feel like doing is taking a looong nap.
Or crashing on the couch and watching Grey’s Anatomy.
Or crashing on my bed with a Stephanie Laurens book.
But besides that I totally dig breakfast food.
Like breakfast for dinner – I’m soo down!
And french toast is probably one of my biggest weaknesses.
Besides crepes of course, I’m European after all!
But this french toast…ohmygoodness…
Where have you been all my life?
And I actually ate it for breakfast…
The angel food cake is soo light and fluffy and slightly crunchy, the strawberry sauce is sweet and a little tangy from the lemon juice and then top it off with some cool whip and you have some of the yummiest french toast ever.
Best thing is that although its filling and totally indulging I didn’t feel like I was in a food coma after eating it 🙂 the angel food cake was a great choice in my opinion but pound cake would be really good too!
Make this for breakfast or dinner I know you’ll love it 🙂
