Bacon and Butter Cake French Toast

Yeah, it's exactly what you think it is. I was looking at this chunk of bundt cake that was sitting on my counter (a butter cake mix that my girlfriend had really wanted me to make) and I just thought to make this.

Butter cake, dipped in a mixture of egg, milk, vanilla and a pinch of salt. You know, french toast. But I sprinkled some crumbled bacon on it before frying. And then I ate it with maple syrup. It was ridiculous. Ridiculously awesome. I'm going to make it again, repeatedly, but with pound cake. The sandwich loaf shaped slices would be better, they would hold more egg and bacon. And more bacon is a goal worth striving for, don't you think?

This could just as easily be dessert as breakfast, since it is pretty rich and sweet. And I do count this as breakfast kids, cake is a perfectly fine breakfast food. The way I see it, if donuts are ok to eat for breakfast, anything is.

Never would have thought of this! Love the idea of bacon in it and my family will go nuts for this breakfast treat!

I have toasted pound cake for breakfast, but have never thought of taking it a step further to making it French Toast. The bacon really makes it. Great idea for a weekend brunch.

Meghan said...

I would never think to use cake for French toast - I like how your mind works! The salty/sweet element is great too I'm sure.

Hungry Dog said...

Cake is always appropriate for breakfast. Cake and bacon? Bring it!

Looks fabulous... sorry I haven't been around for awhile, I moved to the US Virgin Islands (I still giggle when I say that) for six months, and it is taking awhile to get settled. But i do think I am caught up, and will be back with new postings...

Come take a look at my new blogs of Island life!

Everything is better with Bacon... that one has a little happy face!

Lucy said...

I'm with you - I don't think certain foods should be classed as "not breakfast"! This looks such a treat...and a totally genius idea :D

Talita said...

Wait a minute. The butter cake isn't sweet? This is craziness! Well, I do love to try it! Lol

Joie de vivre said...

You are right, if doughnuts count as breakfast, this should count too. I think you are a little bit of an evil genius, wouldn't you say? Mwah ha ha ha!

The salami and cream cheese kept me going until dinner. Thanks, as always, for visiting. And I still think you are an evil genius for using cake for french toast.

Omg, this is too funny! It's like making French toast out of day old bread. You were just repurposing leftovers to make something delicious and provide a jump start to your day. Love it.

Pocky said...

Kate at Serendipity said...

Bob. Bob. Bob. This is too much. How can I stay on my diet when you're showing me stuff like this?? (LOL, said she, the chocolate pimp)

Seriously, this looks wonderful. I love the face on the one in the second photo. How could you eat that face?? Too cruel.

Now I'm wondering if you could use pound cake to make a grilled bacon sandwich. Hmmm...

Great idea!

Tangled Noodle said...

Oh, so you went there. Butter cake and bacon - you have a wickedly delicious mind!

Steph said...

This totally reminds me of something paula would make. I always love your creativity!
