Using a secret ingredient marscapone, this French toast will almost have a rich, near custard like texture (far from its roadside diner counterpart which is often made of Texas toast or Wonder Bread).
Since brioche has been made more readily available, French Toast in America has made massive improvements. For those who never had brioche before, the French sweet bread is most comparable to Sweet Hawaiian bread.
Thick slices are key in the preparation of the perfect French toast.
The fruit topping is a simple combination of sliced strawberries and powdered sugar simmered to get nice and gooey, then poured over the grilled toast. For color, sprinkle with fresh blueberries as well.
