I’m not much of a morning person, yeah I just admitted that. I’m definitely one of those ‘needs coffee to survive type of mom. My family knows the only way to coerce me out of bed at odd hours of the morning, is to feed me good food and a strong cup of coffee. Thank goodness we have a Keurig!
It makes my coffee morning ritual oh so easy. When I was little my mom would sometimes surprise my brother and me with French Toast on Saturday mornings. These were rare weekend occurrences but it was none the less special to my brother and me.
This simple recipe is my mother’s, and I have followed it since I was 15 years old. The one spin I put on her recipe is that I used Challah bread instead of the usual Wonder bread she loved so much. Back when we used to have a Wonder Bread store, do yall remember those? I actually have very fond memories of walking into the store and smelling nothing but goodness in the air.
Picking out the snacks was the hardest since we were only allowed to pick a few at a time per visit. I chose cupcakes every time. I had a soft spot for those yellow cupcakes and of course, those chocolate cream-filled ones. Oh goodness, I want a cupcake now. I pumped up her recipe and added some delicious butterscotch caramel apples. This is so easy to make yet so delicious and decadent. Top it with some powdered sugar and maple syrup.
Although I followed my mother’s basic recipe, I decided to pump up her recipe and add some delicious butterscotch caramel apples. This is so easy to make yet so delicious and decadent. Top it with some powdered sugar and maple syrup.
When’s the last time you had french toast? Do you have any childhood memories with your family while you enjoyed these for breakfast?
