Good Taste: Funnel-cake French toast

Posted: March 15, 2012

Ordering the sky-high funnel-cake French toast at Hawthornes Cafe is almost like accepting a Man v. Food challenge.

The chef taps into his Lancaster roots and fries up a funnel cake, which is sandwiched by nutmeg-tinged French toast made from house-baked challah.

The whole stack is powdered with sugar, draped with crème anglaise, and dotted with raspberries. You'll find the on-again off-again special running this weekend and next week - an order that's sort of perfect for a Monday morning, if you are up to the task.
