    I would give this 5 stars with a lot more spices. Although it has molasses we still needed nutmeg and more cinnamon with some clove. YUM! Also we used Almond milk instead of heavy cream. Our new favorite french toast recipe for sure.  -  27 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The flavoring of the molasses is subtle and is quite delicious. I sprinkled in a lot more cinnamon than the recipe called for.  -  26 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Even though I healthied this up by using whole wheat bread and milk in place of the cream I though this was fantastic. I was a little heavier with my spices but it's the molasses that really makes this dish. It adds such depth. Great recipe.  -  28 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
