After a disastrous morning (a raccoon got trapped in my housemate's room and went nuts), this french toast was just what we needed. Make your favorite french toast recipe and then dip it in a plate of finely chopped pecans before frying it up. Serve with this delicious, creamy fruit sauce...
Autumn Fruit Compote
Melt a little butter in a small pot. Add:
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1 pear, peeled and chopped
1 persimmon, peeled and chopped
brown sugar, to taste
Cook down until the fruit is soft, adding water as needed so that it doesn't stick to the pot. When the fruit is relatively soft, add a tablespoon more of butter and a few tablespoons of warm cream. Let the liquid reduce and the fruit soften further until the sauce is to your liking.
