So maybe a special Valentine’s Day dinner isn’t your thing. Maybe your the kind of girl (or guy) who really appreciates it when someone goes that extra mile for you when it comes to breakfast. Maybe you’re just of the opinion that breakfast is the natural conclusion to that lovely Valentine’s Day dinner you both enjoyed the night before…
However it is that you justify special breakfast time, Angel Food Cake French Toast is a pretty solid choice to make. As long as you thought enough ahead to have made or purchased an Angel Food cake, you’re pretty much good to go. Just whisk up the eggs, milk and seasonings, soak the cake slices and cook as you would ordinary french toast. However, the end product is anything but ordinary.
The angel food cake maintains it’s lightness and melt-in-your mouth quality, which is just the thing when you want to break your fast with something celebratory and just a little fancy. Since it’s so light, it also doesn’t weigh you down, leaving you good to go in case you feel like crawling back under the covers to continue that Valentine’s Day celebration.
