  1. Oh my goodness Christy! Just this morning, while I was making French Toast, my husband had to have a slice of Banana Nut Bread as an “appetizer”! LOL! Wish I had seen this early! LOL!

  2. Hahaha, we all call it that over here, it’s one of the oldest Dutch recipes.
    It just doesn’t sound so bad in my language somehow! (in Dutch it’s “wentelteefjes”)

    I wasn’t aware of the fact you guys make the exact same thing and call it French toast, lol.
    But I’m glad you got a laugh out of it 😉
