This toast takes breakfast to a whole new level. Its a heavenly combination of cinnamon french toast drizzled with a caramelized rum and peach syrup. If you’re feeling extra chipper in the morning, add a dollop of creme fraiche on top of the toast. Most grocery stores should carry it but, If you can’t find creme fraiche you can always use whipped cream instead. I prefer creme fraiche because it’s neutral flavor does an excellent job of balancing out the sweetness of the peach syrup. Make sure to omit the rum if you’re making this recipe for your children.

4. In a pan, add 3/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water. Stir just to evenly combine and let it caramelize over medium heat for 8 minutes. Make sure not to stir while the sugar is caramelizing, but instead occasionally lift the pan with one hand and swirl it around to ensure even browning.
