    I just ran across this recipe, so have not tried it...but it looks good so I thought I'd share it. You make French toast from Angel Food cake, then top it with creme cheese, strawberry syrup and powdered sugar.


    Angel French Toast

    For the French toast
    4 eggs, whisked
    3/4 cup milk
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    nutmeg, to taste

    2 tablespoons butter, divided

    1 (7-inch) store-bought angel food cake, sliced into 12-14 slices

    Optional, for serving
    cream cheese, to taste, softened
    1 cup strawberry syrup
    powdered sugar, to taste


    In a shallow dish, combine the eggs, the milk, the vanilla, the cinnamon, and the nutmeg.

    In a large nonstick skillet, over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter.

    Dip 1/2 of the angel food cake slices into the egg mixture, resting for a few seconds on each side.

    Add the coated slices to the heated skillet and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.

    Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet and repeat with the remaining slices of angel food cake.

    Spread the cream cheese on the cooked slices, and top with the strawberry syrup and the powdered sugar.

    Serve.

    OK, that sounds awful to me. :p Some things are better left alone and angel food cake is one of them.

    It’s actually pretty derned good !

    That said, I used a light dusting of powdered sugar and a demi of warmed custard rather than the cream cheese and strawberry stuff.

    Pound cake works well also and in some respects, better than the sponge cake. (angel food cake)

    I was thinking the same thing.

    AFC is sugary, then you add syrup and 10x to it. It probably could use a squirt of lemon.

    THAT is all about technique.

    My mother used to slather butter on her toast the way I use peanut butter. It still makes me shiver just thinking about it. I cannot imagine eating a fried stick of it. Friggin' Muricans.

    I am NOT feeling the love on this one.
    I see you are more of a Devil's Food crowd.

    Now I might make it just to see...
