Lemon pound cake french toast with fresh raspberries and blueberries drizzled with syrup

You read that right, I said lemon pound cake french toast. I had made my lemon loaf the weekend before and it was getting towards the end of the loaf. I started to eat a slice for breakfast (don’t judge me!) when I thought of french toast. Why have I never tried this before?! I cut the lemon pound cake into slices and coated them in eggs. Then I fried them up with some butter so they were crisp on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. OMG they were so good!

I make my french toast a little different than the norm. I don’t add any milk. I just soak the bread in egg and fry it. It’s how my mom made it and I love it. My lemon pound cake french toast was no different but if you like adding milk to yours feel free. You’re basically taking your favorite french toast recipe and substituting bread for pound cake. Yum!!

To make things a little more fun I cut each slice into three strips and cut those strips in half so I had 6 squares of french toast. I slide 2 -3 squares onto each skewer, alternating with fresh fruit like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.  Then I drizzle the skewers with syrup, sprinkled everything with a little powdered sugar, and breakfast was served!

Eating cake for breakfast just became totally acceptable!
