My husband and I loved this recipe. Preparation is easy and the rich moist French toast is heavenly. I too was a little confused with the cream sauce, but reading the recipe once more told me exactly what to do.. I am making this for Mother's day.

Loved it although I had no idea what I was suppose to do with the white cream sauce at first. I decided place the toast in a little pool of the cream sauce and add the berries on top and the mixture with the berries and cream was like heaven.
