Easter is one of my very favorite holidays for so many reasons and one of those being my mom’s big after church brunch she puts on every year. She always whips up some sort of yummy french toast bake as one of the main dishes for her Easter brunch. And when I stumbled across this photo of a pretty petite french toast soufflÃ© I instantly thought of her (of course my second thought was…. I. AM. SO. HUNGRY.) and quickly e-mailed her the recipe!
I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that you too will be enjoying a petite french toast soufflÃ© on Sunday afternoon!
Happy Easter! xx- AB
