Back when I lived in Brisbane, I would go to a lovely little cafe in West End, The Gunshot Cafe and order their French Bread, it was AMAZING.
I was craving this French toast so badly and since I no longer live in Brisbane and have only visited once since I left. I need to try to recreate my own little version. So I give you my French bread! Not as good as the place I use to go to, but not to bad. It was missing the raspberry coulis that they put on it, but a girl ain’t got time for that first thing in the morning. So strawberries where the perfect cheat.
Instead of using brioche bread I used a greek sweet bread, it’s so amazing. If you haven’t tried it go try it! This is a link to what it looks like. Its great to eat just by itself, it tastes like cake, who wouldn’t want a bread that tastes like cake?
