    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is one of my family's favorites brunches. Because of the baking powder the slices really "puff" up when fried, and the French toast is light and so fluffy! Prep time includes one hour refrigeration time. Also the bread slices need to be refrigerated for 1 hour.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the almonds in a small saucepan; toss occasionally until lightly browned (about 5-8 minutes) careful not to overbrown; set aside.

    5. 5
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the bread slices for about 1 hour.
    6. 6

    7. 7
      Doing one slice at a time, press one side of the soaked bread slice into the toasted almonds to coat.

      So simple and delicious. The almond flavor was fantastic. Made on the french bread with powdered sugar. Made for a great A.M. meal. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      Simply wonderful! I made as directed using half and half and served with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and Pure Canadian Maple Syrup. I will definitely make this again! Thanks, Kittencal!

      So tasty! I used French bread that I baked instead of a baugette. The slices do puff up which makes them very light and airy. I liked this better then the condensed french toast that flattens before your eyes. I used almond extract for the first batch and Amaretto in the second batch. Both had strong, but pleasant, Almond Flavors. If you love the taste and smell of almonds this recipe is for you! Thanks Kitz!
