So called French Toast is a bit of an Aussie thing! Alternative names and variants include 'eggy bread', 'Bombay toast', 'German toast', 'gypsy toast', 'Pain Perdu' and 'poor knights of Windsor bread' (which is a cream cheese and jam sandwich, dipped in egg and fried!) and is largely an invented way across several cuisines to use up stale bread. I introduced the fried version of French Toast to a French friend and she had never heard of it. Go figure.
I do love a quick easy recipe that can impress without stress. Especially for special occasions like Valentines or Mother's Day or even Christmas Day. You can certainly have the Raspberry Coulis ready to rock and roll way in advance. Because this is baked as opposed to fried, you can have it ready in about the same amount of time as if you fried it, but with less hands on interference and hassle. Simples really! While it's cooking, go get the fresh Brew Choc on, steam your milk, set the table, (flowers please for special occasions) and arrange the garnishes. DONE.
