French toast always tastes better with fresh fruit and powdered sugar. Drizzle it with some grade A maple syrup, and this would be surely be one tasty breakfast to share with your sweetheart.

My hubby and I are celebrated Valentine’s Day the night before, just like most of you who have school or work the next day. But for those of you fixing a romantic dinner for your sweetheart this evening, think ahead to tomorrow morning and start the preparation process for this French toast tonight. That way you can sleep-in!

Use any bread loaf you have on hand, or make it extra special by buying one of those fancy loaves with nuts and fruits inside.
