Pound Cake French Toast

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!!

  1. Just from the title, I knew I was going to love this post!! I never thought to make french toast with pound cake. I bet it is sinfully delicious!! Can’t wait to try it!! Thanks for the recipe and giveaway!!

  2. Oh, man! What a FABULOUS idea! This sounds great! I love the way you added flavoring to the “batter”!!! Thank you!!

  3. 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?

    1. 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. 🙂

  4. I don’t know why my lap top is not doing the small word. But your recipes are out of this world! make sure not to do captial on my e-mail. Thanks!

  5. Recipe calls for 1/8 salt, but method doesn’t include adding it, so is it a misprint in recipe or method? I’d probably leave the salt out regardless, just thought it’d be good to clear it up
