Nancy's famous french toast

french toast


Well at least in our family it's famous and it's to die for. Topped with your choice of or fresh blueberries or peach slices and/or home made maple syrup. (Um, I will confess that I will go for all of it, and do not feel any shame it it.) It's  wonderful and delicious addition to a breakfast or brunch sit down. Everyone gets to sit down and enjoy at once since it's prepared the night before all that's left it to pop it into the oven then serve hot.
