recipe: french toast with flaked almonds & icing sugar

Sunday is the perfect day to cook or bake at home. I always make sure I've bought my groceries so I can start right away. Yesterday I stopped by my favorite bakery to collect a beautiful loaf of brioche, it makes the perfect base to bake this french toast, but if you have other (old) white bread you can use that as well. You can combine this easy breakfast with your favorite fruit, I've topped it with toasted almonds and icing sugar.
