I have a confession to make. There is another reason why I love to bake Sally Lunn bread that I have to share with you. It makes the best French toast I have ever tasted. Decadent, rich, moist, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness in every single bite.
Come to think of it, that’s probably why my whole house is a-buzz when they know Sally Lunn bread is baking in the oven. They know they’ll be served up a fresh plate of Sally Lunn French toast in the morning. And believe me, French toast made with Sally Lunn bread is a mighty fine reason to get up and going in the morning.
You can also use other types of bread for your French toast – recommended would be brioche and challah, while in a pinch you can use whatever bread you have on hand. But I promise you, once you taste French toast made with Sally Lunn bread, it will become a favorite for you, too.
Here’s how I make it.
