Angel Food French Toast with Strawberry Sauce

Here's a decadent spin on one of my favorite breakfast foods.  Actually, it combines one of my favorite desserts (angel food with strawberries), with my favorite breakfast food (French toast).  It's easy, quick, and incredibly delicious!  Here's how Mama makes it:

Angel Food French Toast with Strawberry Sauce


- 1 angel food cake, sliced
- 5 eggs
- 1/4 c. milk
- 1 t. vanilla
for strawberry sauce:
- 1 pint fresh strawberries
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 1 t. vanilla
- 3 T. water
- 1 scant T. cornstarch


for the sauce:
1.  Wash strawberries and remove stems.  Coarsely chop and place in a small saucepan.  Mash the strawberries slightly, then add the sugar and vanilla. 

2.  In a small dish, mix the cornstarch and water, then add to the saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil, the allow mixture to boil for 1 minute or until sauce thickens.  Stir constantly while cooking.  Once thickened, remove from heat or turn heat to lowest setting to keep warm while making the French toast.

for the angel food:
3.  Slice cake into 1 inch pieces.   Combine egg, milk, and vanilla in a shallow dish and beat slightly.  Heat a skillet over medium heat, then spray with cooking spray.

4.  Dip cake slices in the egg mixture, then place on skillet.  Cook a few minutes on each side until slightly browned, then flip.  Serve warm with strawberry sauce.
