French Toast with Raspberry Whipped Cream

Berry French Toast

During the week my breakfast consists of a bowl of cereal. Not that impressive, but I try to make up for my lack of variety over the weekend when I have more time to spare.

Berry French Toast

Last weekend I was craving french toast so I whipped up a batch. Normally I would just drizzle a bit of maple syrup on top and call it a day, but I felt a bit more adventurous this morning. I had leftover whipped cream in the fridge and I thought it would be a shame for it to go to waste. Right?!

A handful of raspberries later, I had a bowl of raspberry whipped cream. Pure heaven! Topped with fresh berries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, I dug into my breakfast. French toast craving = satisfied!
