“A yummy twist on classic French toast. The thickness and sweetness of the bread make this extra special. I found the bread in the bakery of my local grocery store. Fresh whipped cream makes it even better. I don't soak the bread as long as the recipe calls for. This is from Ina Garten/Barefoot Contessa at foodnetwork.com.”
