Its almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air…or at least it will be after one bite of this incomprehensibly scrumptious breakfast – one that warranted an, “Are you kidding me?!” before Patrick even swallowed his first bite.

I am not usually the hugest fan of French toast.  I mean, I like it, but I prefer the texture of waffles.  But this French toast, is not just any French toast – its ANGEL FOOD CAKE French toast!  Which means pure awesomeness through and through.

Let me say that one more time – lightly air and slightly sweet cake heaven on the inside.

And then smeared with cream cheese and smothered with sweet, fresh strawberry decadence.  That strawberry decadence part – there are simply no words for its deliciousness – just pictures.

    Hi !

    I tried the strawberry sauce and loved how it turned out. I have been following your posts regularly. Your pictures are evil ! They make me want to eat them up 🙂 . I like that all most of your recipes are straight forward. I cant cook to save my life but I try after reading your post. I can’t do fancy stuff.

    Is ok to use white bread instead of the ones you have mentioned here ? Also, can i do the baking on regular tray with foil on it. That is the only tray I have.
    My other baking tray is very small. After soaking the bread overnight, doesnt it become soggy ?

      Hi Nikita! Thank you so much for following along even with all my “evil” pictures 🙂 I am so happy you enjoyed the strawberry sauce and I love that you can easily follow my recipes – YAY!

      As far as the recipe questions – I am wondering if you are referring to the Creme Brulee French Toast instead of this Angel Food Cake? The Angel Food Cake does not sit overnight and gets cooked right on the stove. Assuming you are talking about the Creme Brulee French Toast, white bread would definitely get soggy so I would NOT use it. The other bread will not get soggy soaking overnight as it should be 2 day old and becoming a little stale. It will be wet when soaked overnight but after being baked, it is perfect! You can only use a regular baking tray if it has a rimmed edge or else the brown sugar mixture will spill right off of it. You could also use 2 9×13 casserole dishes. Hope this helps!!
