Mother's Day

Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day only a few days away, I thought I would share my favourite French toast recipe that has become a tradition in my home for Mother’s Day. Being a mother has many challenges, but the rewards definitely outweigh all the hardships. What better way to celebrate that special day than with a wonderful homemade French toast breakfast (with lots of coffee of course!) and being surrounded by the ones we love!

This recipe is super easy and really doesn’t need a special occasion to be enjoyed. I like to add cinnamon to the batter, which pairs beautifully with the orange zest. I serve the French toast with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, topped with freshly whipped whipping cream and strawberries. I’ve never actually tried the recipe with challah bread; instead I’ve opted for a thick cut toast, which works perfectly.

The best part is that spending Mother’s Day breakfast at home means going out for dinner!

Here’s to hard-working moms everywhere… Enjoy!

Cut up the strawberries in advance and sprinkle with sugar to allow the juices to be released.
