Snickerdoodle French Toast
If asked what my favorite meal is, I must go with the “most important meal of the day,” breakfast! It may not be the most elegant meal most of the time, but there’s something special about stuffing your face with buttery, syrupy pancakes, fluffy scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, and of course a perfectly ratioed mimosa to wash it all down.
A guilty pleasure of mine has always been my mother’s perfectly fried French toast.½ inch thick Pullman loaf, soaked in fresh eggs, vanilla extract and canned cream, then dropped in hot oil… man, did the aroma and bubbles on the sides of that bread makes your tastebuds dance. I’d put my mother’s French Toast up against the fanciest brunches in the world. It really is personal, and all about the memory.
What better way to enhance mom’s already perfect breakfast food than adding Pecan Deluxe toppings? Pecan Deluxe prepares the most delicious cookie pieces and the Snickerdoodle cookie piece is no exception. When I created this Snickerdoodle French toast, I upped the anti with a freshly cut brioche pullman loaf, then combined traditional fresh eggs, canned cream, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom, and vanilla extract, and gently soaked the brioche slice on each side then coated it in our Snickerdoodle Cookie pieces. After a light pressing, I fried these little delights to a golden perfection and topped them with a sprinkle of more Snickerdoodle crumble.
The French toast was beyond amazing, and a fabulous new addition to the Culinary library of awesome. Craving to make these little slices of heaven? In the words of my mother, “come and get it!” Cheers. -Chef Kami
