Steph,

I actually tried this and it tasted like 'heaven':D. The first memory I have is of french toast but they were plain back then and never tasted this great. Thankyou :D. Plus, I am an instant fan :D.

I agree with citigirl, you had me at caramal too. The name and the mouth watering picture is enough to drive anyone to the kitchen for such a delectable treat.

My first thought was yummy but 'forbidden' because of all the butter and then heavy cream ... both of which I love but my cholesterol is way high. BUT my next thought was Benecol (butter substitute that actually lowers cholesterol.) I could use canned coconut milk in place of cream ... both zero cholesterol.

So now I can have your french toast and eat it too. :)

Thanks Steph!
