Secret Recipe Club: Sugar Crusted Vanilla French Toast

Sugar Crusted Vanilla French Toast

by Holly on June 13, 2011

Time flies when you are having fun. It also flies by when you are scrambling to finish out a school year amidst baseball season and various doctor appointments. I can’t believe it is time again already for another installment of the Secret Recipe Club!

This month I was given a fellow Ph=the ‘F’ sound food blogger in Wendy over at La Phemme Phoodie. Clearly, we have tasted in common.

It didn’t stop with the name though, and I have to admit I’m a bit jealous of Wendy’s gluten-free and healthy eating attitudes. I struggle to eat healthy and mainly try to see how much sugar I can survive on… plus some caffeine thrown in. My friends refer to it as my ‘self-medicating’. I’m ok with that.

I was still snagged on one recipe in particular on Wendy’s blog that was different than other similar recipes I have made. I think that my love of all things French Toast has been sufficiently documented here on the blog. That said, there is always room for one more.

What struck me as different about Wendy’s recipe for Bourbon Vanilla French Toast Casserole was the fact that the sugar is made into a caramel-y syrup and poured over the custard soaked bread just before baking. Again, clearly, we have plenty in common since sugar coating most anything I’m going to laughingly refer to as ‘nutrition’ is right up my alley!

I made a half batch with a very crusty baguette and wasn’t disappointed in the amount of crunchy, crusty, vanilla flavored french toast casserole I was treated too. It didn’t really need any further gilding of the lily when it was time to eat, so I just dug in as is, with a little bowl of berries on the side for an extra treat.
