Tres Leches French Toast

What does one do with leftover milks from her husband’s Tres Leches birthday cake? Make Tres Leches French Toast of course! This was a total experiment which turned out to be a total success 🙂 (And please excuse the darkness of the photo- it was early in the morning and not enough natural light. Had to take the picture before all the french toast vanished!)

  • 1 lb loaf whole grain bread, sliced into 1/2″ slices

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/3 cup almond milk

  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds (optional)

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk

  • 1/2 cup sweet condensed milk

  • 8 oz organic whipping cream, divided

  • 2 teaspoons honey

Place sliced bread into an 8×8 pan. Beat eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and flax together. Slowly pour over bread. Cover with lid. (I like to snap lid in place and flip to ensure all the bread is moist. I will leave it inverted for about 10 min.) Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 350. Remove french toast from fridge. Bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Combine evaporated milk, sweet condensed milk, and 1/4 cup cream. Pour milks over french toast after it has been out of the oven for about 5-10 minutes. Beat remaining cream into whipped cream, adding honey just as cream begins to reach the soft peak stage.  Slice french toast and place individual servings onto plates. Top with whipped cream.
