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

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!!

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?

    Lil' Luna

    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. 🙂


Made this for brunch today and it was FANTASTIC! Thanks so much for the recipe!!

    Lil' Luna

    YAY!! So glad it was a hit!! It’s a favorite of ours too. 🙂


I put on two kgs. Just by looking at the Photoshop and reading the recipes.
