Now! This is French Toast...the Best I Have Ever Made

"Wow, are you in for a treat, this is so good. My friend introduced me to the Italian Dessert Bread/Cake, il Pandoro by Battistero. It is wonderful, so delicious, light and airy.When this lovely treat dried out, I made French toast with it. Am I ever glad that I did, this is one of the best tasting French toasts I have ever tried. I am really hoping that you will enjoy this simple treat. Bon Appetite."

    Excellent, festive and oh so easy! Pandoro is generally sold locally only from Thanksgiving week through Christmas, so I was curious to try it. I checked out several recipes, which all described genuine Pandoro as "very difficult" and requiring 2-3 days to make; given that intense effort, it made sense to buy the Balocco il Pandoro at my neighborhood Italian restaurant. The restaurant owner said to put the cake in the oven with the icing sugar after removing the turkey and turning off the heat for a simple holiday dessert; leftovers can then be used for this recipe. I love the light lemon/citron flavor of this Pandoro, which contributed to a full-flavored French toast with minimal effort. Now that I have tasted genuine Pandoro, I plan to try an Italian recipe I am still translating for comparison. Note: if serving for a holiday brunch, the Pandoro slices can be sliced into sticks the size of fish sticks so more can be cooked at one time. I cut my cake horizontally to maintain the traditional star shape. Whoever I treat to this delight is a "star" in my book! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

    I managed to get Pandoro (although by Battistero) through Amazon.com so was able to make this French toast about as accurately as I could! I even served it with the sprinkling of powdered sugar, which isn't something I normally include! Absolutely wonderful & satisfying breakfast, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
