    French Tart's Note:

    This dish originated during the middle ages in England and spread all over the world with many variations. Traditionalists would use stale bread, but stale cake is a good substitute. Red wine can be used instead of white, and you can add milk, as I have done here, you then have a more recognizable dish called, incorrectly, French toast. The Poor Knights of Windsor, incidentally, was a military order formed by King Edward III in the 14th Century.

      Well I have to admit I took the Boozy out of this toast. I used apple juice instead of wine. I also used egg beaters instead of real eggs. Loved the double dip process. This made the toast nice and eggy in the middle and crispy on the outside. The juice added a mellow sweetness. I enjoyed it with both homemade strawberry preserves and maple syrup. Thanks for the great recipe. I think this will be my go to french toast recipe. YUMMY!
