Sometimes we just want to make a very special dessert (or brunch) for someone, in my case, my mom-in-law (MIL), but we have no time to spend for an elaborated dessert. So, I make this ‘Ricotta French Toast.’ It’s pretty enough for any special day and you can serve it with ANY seasonal fruit in your area,and it’s super quick & easy. Present these french toasts on any table and you will
surely see a happy face.

  1. this sounds great, BUT you direct us to go somewhere else to get recipe for “milk loaf” which does in fact take me to “tworedbowls” but does not give actual recipe only pictures of making it; they in turn refer us to “food52” which offers us a selection of 96 different things for milk bread. I did not find this to be “user friendly”; it shouldn’t be so difficult to find the entire recipe. Would also be nice to know if ANY loaf of bread could be used, or if this particular loaf could be made in bread-maker.
