Chocolate French Toast & Strawberries


What To Do

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Whisk until well blended. Pour in half of the milk and whisk until mixture is smooth. Add remaining milk, eggs and vanilla. Whisk until well blended.

2. Arrange bread in a baking dish or cast iron skillet. Pour cocoa mixture over bread. Turn bread to make sure both sides are evenly coated. Poke bread with a fork so the bread absorbs the egg mixture. 

3. Add butter into a large nonstick pan or cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Carefully transfer the bread to the pan. Cook each side until brown and lightly crisp about 2 to 3 minutes. Place French toast in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and fresh strawberries.  Drizzle strawberries with chocolate balsamic vinegar. (optional)
