Light angel food cake dipped in a cinnamon batter and fried until perfection. This is one French toast you can eat for dinner! Especially when topped with a fresh fruit sauce.

Angel food cake french toast

This light and airy French toast is perfect for brunch. Or even dessert. It's lightly soaked in a cinnamon spiced custard and grilled until crispy brown on the edges. We drizzled a fresh strawberry puree over the top but any puree of your favorite fruit would work. This is one French toast that is decadent and delicious!
