    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    A romantic breakfast for two, or a treat for a special little one. This rich, luscious French toast is from The Cook's Cottage and Suites in Fredericksburg, Texas, voted one of the Top 25 Most Romantic Places in the U.S. I prepared this for my boyfriend for our one-year "anniversary" and found that there is much more of the sauce than we needed - try it over vanilla ice cream, or simply half the recipe. Also, it's best to use preserves for this recipe, not jam or jelly.
