Easy & Tasty French Toast Topped With Caramelized Plums

Kick start your any day with this delicious breakfast and you’ll feel great for the rest of the day…

My mom used to make this often when I was young, not for breakfast but as an evening snack. This delicious french toast has always put a smile on my face and the aroma while making this has made me go Mmmmm. Now, once in a while I tend to make this for breakfast when I get tired of my regular breakfast dishes.

I’ve been under the impression that this breakfast dish must have been created in France, well after reading about this in Wiki I came to learn that French toast was first mentioned in the “Apicius”, a collection of Roman recipes dating back to the 4th or 5th century. That was a pretty new and interesting information to me.

I usually have just the french toast, so this time for a change I topped it with caramelized plums which made the french toast even more delicious. You could make the topping with almost any kind of fruits, for instance: strawberry, pears, mango, apples, orange, etc. If you haven’t tasted french toast yet, then you are missing out on something really delicious which can be made effortlessly.
