For the french toast:

  • 1 package Sara Lee Angel Food Cake thawed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the syrup:

  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Slice the angel food cake into 1 inch thick slices. Set aside.
  • In a shallow dish, such as a pie plate, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until well combined.
  • Place as many slices of cake as will fit in the egg mixture and let sit 2 minutes per side.
  • While the cake is soaking, heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add a couple of slices of cake to the hot pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.
  • Flip to the other side and repeat.
  • Repeat with the remaining slices of cake.
  • While the french toast is cooking, heat the maple syrup, cream cheese, and cinnamon in a small saucepan, whisking often. Whisk vigorously before pouring over the french toast.
