Angel French Toast with Strawberry Syrup: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This breakfast is meant for a special occasion, like a birthday breakfast for someone who loves angel food cake and strawberries. It may not be the healthiest breakfast, but it sure is delicious and a great way to celebrate a special day.

Angel French Toast with Cream Cheese and Strawberry Syrup
Ingredients:

Strawberry Syrup
3 cups diced strawberries
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Angel French Toast
1 angel food cake
4 eggs, whisked
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
reduced fat cream cheese, softened

Directions:
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Simmer until the strawberries are softened, the syrup has thickened and the volume has reduced by 1/3 to 1/2, stirring occasionally. This will take about 15 minutes. The syrup will thicken more upon standing, if it becomes too thick whisk in a bit more water to reach desired consistency.

Preheat a griddle and spray with cooking spray.

While the strawberry syrup is simmering, slice the angel food cake into 12-14 pieces. In a shallow bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Place the angel food cake pieces into the egg mixture letting it stand for a few seconds on each side. Place cake pieces on griddle and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.

Spread each piece of angel food cake with desired amount of cream cheese and top with strawberry syrup.

Enjoy!!!
