Red Velvet French Toast


  • 12 extra large Eggs
  • ¼ cup Heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Powdered Sugar
  • 6 slices of Red Velvet bread
  • 1 pint of fresh strawberries
  • Whipped cream to garnish


  • Whip eggs into a large bowl
  • In a separate stainless bowl mix, the dry ingredients together (cinnamon, nutmeg, powdered sugar)
  • Combine the eggs with the dry ingredients and mix
  • Add the heavy cream and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly
  • Dip each slice of red velvet bread in the batter. Do not soak the slices. Just enough to coat each side with batter.
  • Immediately place the slice in a greased frying pan until each side is browned slightly

Red velvet bread can be purchased at some local bakeries or stores, or viewers can simply make their favorite red velvet cake in a bread pan and slice into thick layers to use for the French Toast.
