Pound Cake French Toast

Happy National Pound Cake Day!! Did you know this was a holiday? I’ll admit that I didn’t know either until I was contacted by Sara Lee and was asked to come up with a recipe using some of their new Pound Cake products. Already being a huge fan of pound cake, I didn’t hesitate and had a blast checking out some of the recipes they have listed on the Sara Lee website. The second I saw that they had a great recipe for Pound Cake French Toast, I knew I had to try it cuz it sounded too good to be true. And after tasting it, I can attest to the fact that it was too good to be true!!! SO stinking YUMMY!!! We will definitely be making this again, and soon!!

Pound Cake French Toast. Pure heaven!! This is definitely our new favorite way to have french toast! { lilluna.com }

If you’re a French Toast Fan, then I know you will LOVE this next recipe. :)

I modified it just a tid from the Sara Lee version, but I promise you will think it is heavenly!!

    Mmm this sounds fabulous and much better than this protein shake! I absolutely love french toast and I bet the pound cake makes it 10X better.

    I have a homemade, (well actually box-made) pound cake that needs to be put to use. Do you think I could cut it into thick slices and use it with this recipe?

      I definitely think so!! I have one too and will be trying it out soon, but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work. :)
