French Toast at its best! Just substitute French Vanilla Coffee Creamer for the milk. You can also substitute Hazelnut Coffee Creamer, Low Fat Flavored Coffee Creamers, or ANY Flavored Coffee Creamer in place of the milk and have a different french toast flavor everytime. Don't use powdered versions of Flavored Coffee Creamers for this. It must be the liquid version. Serve with maple syrup or fruit spread, warmed. Fresh sliced fruit. Dust with powdered sugar if you like, as well. And of course, dot with butter before your other topping choices. You can also get a loaf of French Bread and do thick slices, cut a pocket in the middle, put fresh fruit of your choice inside and follow the rest of the directions and have Stuffed French Vanilla Toast! I have used sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, black raspberries(I like the flavor better but they are hard to find, unless you live where they are grown). Fresh sliced Peaches or Papaya or Mangoes are good. Blueberries are good, even peeled and sliced oranges are good and top with warmed orange marmalade. I usually use the fruit I put inside as my topping. Sometimes making a simple heated fruit/juice and sugar syrup. It's ALL GOOD, any which way you make it! I love the versatility of the different flavors and since I love French Toast, something different every time I make it, is a real treat! Haven't found a flavor I DON'T like yet!
