Cinnamon Pear French Toast

Cinnamon Pear French Toast

It was a chilly December day in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Snowflakes were falling, and my stomach was growling.  It was the morning after a gymnastics competition, and my family was speed walking through the cold to a local breakfast restaurant.

Once we settled inside, pulled off our gloves, and glanced at the menu, something caught my eye: “cinnamon waffle with pears foster.”  Back then, I wasn’t really sure what pears foster meant, but it sounded nice so I ordered it anyway.

Even though that day was years ago, I still remember that breakfast.  It was so crazy good with warm cinnamon spiced pear juice seeping all over.  Absolutely no syrup necessary – just the sweet slices of fruit smothering the fluffy, golden waffle.

Clearly, it inspired me to replicate the flavor combination.  Since then, cinnamon-pear French toast has become one of my special breakfast favorites!  Yum, yum, yum.
