I set the dining room table with a fun summery/lake theme. We'll continue visiting the lake well into the fall!
Poundcake French Toast
4 thick slices of poundcake
1/4 c maple syrup
2 - 3 T butter
Beat together eggs and maple syrup in a large bowl. Add poundcake slices to bowl and let the slices soak-up the egg mixture for about five minutes.
Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, but don't let it get brown.
Add a couple of slices of the poundcake, and lightly brown on each side. Repeat with the rest of the poundcake slices.
Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar. Truly, it doesn't need syrup, but you can pour syrup on the French toast or add whipped cream if you like. Serve with strong Espresso or Cappuccino.
I was too slow to take photos. Plus someone ate my slice, but I won't mention any names here....
What's your favorite brunch recipe?
Until next time...
