I made these yesterday, and found them to be very quick and easy to make.
You may want to make the delectable raspberry sauce ahead of time (OR use ANY purchased fruit syrup!), as it keeps for a long time in the fridge, and serve it warm or cold when you make the French toast.
8 slices of bread
1 cup milk
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
raspberry sauce (GO to Raspberry Sauce Recipe) OR purchase syrup of ANY flavour
shortening for frying
fresh raspberries for garnishing (optional)
heart-shaped cookie cutter
NOTE: The ingredients listed here are enough to make about 8 french toasts.
You can increase or decrease the quantities in the list according to the number of toasts you wish to make.
TIP: If the bread is fresh, leave it out on the counter for at least a few hours prior to making the french toast, to allow it to "air dry" a little, or else it will absorb too much liquid when dipping the bread into the milk/egg.
This, see image below, is the same heart shape cookie cutter that I used for this recipe.
It is available for online purchase at *Amazon.com.

Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter (similar to the one shown above, right), gently press into each slice of bread to extract a piece of heart-shaped bread, and discard the crust (see photo).
In a bowl, beat the eggs with a fork, and add the milk, sugar, and the cinnamon.
Heat the frying pan and add a small amount of shortening to coat the bottom of the pan.
Dip the heart-shaped bread into the milk mixture, allowing excess liquid to drip off, and carefully place in the frying pan, and fry until a delicate brown, turn over, and allow to brown on the other side.
Transfer toasts to a plate, and add raspberry syrup (warm or room temperature is best), and garnish with fresh raspberries.
Makes 8 French toasts.
(For this Valentines Raspberry Recipe French Toast...I used the raspberry sauce recipe indicated in the ingredient list, however you can make and use any one of the raspberry sauce recipes included in the Raspberry Sauce Section OR simply purchase a delicious fruit syrup or any syrup that is your Valentines favourite!)
