Happy Easter!

We love the sweet breads available here in Italy for holidays like Easter and Christmas.  They are very similar to Portuguese Massa Sovada, which I was sad to leave behind when we left the Azores. We get it here once in a while and make delicious french toast with it.   This particular bread we used this time is Fugassa Venetian- or a type of sweet, high-rising bread from the local Veneto region here.

Sweet Italian Bread French Toast

1 loaf Italian sweet Easter bread
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
vanilla and almond extracts
pinch sugar, if desired

1.  Preheat your griddle or pan on the stove.  Slice your bread a little on the thick side, but not too thick.  Mix the eggs, milk, extracts, and sugar together.  Grease your griddle or use non-stick spray. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, one by one, and place onto the griddle.  Cook pieces until browned on one side and flip over.
