Pound Cake French Toast!

The combination came to me one day when I had been shopping at Costco.  I enjoy eating their pound cake, but it comes in a package of 3.  It’s not that my family can’t polish off all three loaves within a few day, I just don’t think that is the healthiest choice I could make for us.  But alas, I remembered I was having my family for brunch over the weekend, I could just serve the buttery pound cake with the rest of the brunch items…Or… I could do a two for one and make… wait for it…

Of course, I couldn’t wait to blurt out that is was pound cake that make the french toast so very delicious.  There is something about the buttery sweet goodness that pound cake has, when it is dipped in an egg batter it becomes the perfect combination of tender in the inside, crispy on the outside yummy goodness.

    That sounds absolutely amazing. This will be the perfect birthday breakfast for my husband next week! I think I will add a pinch of cocoa powder and a dash of cayenne. What do you think?
