Scrumptious French Toast Recipe

Welcome to day 3 of Classy Cookin’! I am so thrilled for you all to meet our next guest blogger, Scarlett! Scarlett is Savannah’s younger sister and she is seriously Super Mom! She is incredibly talented (like her big sis!) and recently started her own cooking blog! Oh my goodness she is an amazing cook and baker so we were so excited that she agreed to take part in our week of recipes! Take it away Scarlett!
Hey! I am so excited to be a part of Classy Cookin! This is my first time being featured on another blog and I am ecstatic!
My name is Scarlett Bendixen and I am the author of Made It Ate it Loved it. My blog is fairly new, but my LOVE for cooking isn’t! I was raised helping my mom in the kitchen, helped her with catering, goodie baskets during the holidays, and am now cooking for my family of all boys!
I have been married to my husband for almost 5 years and we have 2 little boys, Crew (3) and Remington (1) with another on the way!
The recipe(s) I have chosen have been my favorite for years and I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

French Toast
 4 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
grated rind for 1/3 of a orange
1 loaf of texas toast bread
Combine all ingredients (except bread) and whisk together. Dip thick Texas toast (My favorite is Aunt Hattie’s Texas Toast, which comes in a yellow bag) Brown on both sides on griddle; top with butter and syrup; my favorite is Buttermilk syrup!
Buttermilk Syrup
1 cube butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Combine butter, sugar, and buttermilk over medium heat in a medium to large saucepan. When it just starts to boil, remove off heat and add baking soda and vanilla. Stir; it will foam up. Serve hot. Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. And then to reheat put in saucepan over medium heat until warm.
Wowza! This looks amazing Scarlett! These photos have me drooling! Be sure to head over to Scarlett’s blog, Made It Ate it Loved it and check out her other phenomenal recipes! Savannah and I have both tasted her food and she is extremely talented and throws killer parties btw! 😉

    That looks incredible…seriously. Also, when I first saw the button at the top, I thought it was a Christmas ornament (and got way too excited for April)!

    Made this tonight with butternut squash but didn’t have feta or the herbs for the dressing. Still, was a nice combination of flavors. I added shitake mushrooms with the kale.rluy

    Tania, one square of chocolate is equal to one ounce (so you need two ounces for this recipe) and a stick of butter is roughly 4 oz (1/4 pound). I’m making this tonight, looks good.organic food

    Just watching the picture of vegan chickpea “tuna” has brought water in my mouth. All pictures of this chickpea are looking very delicious and mouthwatering that are compelling me to make this recipe.Simple and Easy Strawberry Jelly

    This was very yummy and oh so healthy. I made a few alterations, but not too many. One was I used spinach instead of kale. I also added two tablespoons of capers, and used your suggestion of pine nuts – sooo good with the pine nuts. I also made your suggested basil pesto recipe. That was delicious too; I added just a bit of pesto to each bowl of spaghetti. Thanks for the recipe! I’ll be sharing on my social media accounts.sweet tomatoes prices

    I can see why you would like this so much – it sounds wonderful. I would definitely add protein to this, simply because I can’t survive on high carb/low protein meals. I’m looking forward to trying it.exotic fruit

    Hi, What a wonderful collection of recipes showcasing the Sweet Potato. My favorite would hard to choose but I will say the dish by The Comfort of Cooking, looks so delicious. We will feature this post on the next Blogger’s Pit Stop, well done. Banana benefits

    So, I am confused. You prepare the Oatmeal according to the directions and use 2 1/2 cups of prepared oatmeal for the recipe? I have never heard of anything like that before. Just want to make sure I do it right! 🙂Falafel Recipe

    Hi,
    Looks delicious. I’ll have to try this recipe with a Louisiana twist using my Jambalaya starter sauce. It always adds more to the dish https://dedescajuncuisine.com/product/jambalaya/
