A good friend of mine made this for a baby shower brunch. It was soo good. I like to make a fruit sauce to serve with it. Basically, use any bag of frozen of fresh fruit (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, etc), add some sugar and a little corn starch - boil until thick. Serve warm with french toast!
