Chocolate Sauce method:
Heat the water and add the butter and sugar and bring to a boil. Then add in the corn syrup, cocoa, and chocolate. Last add in the scraped vanilla bean excluding the pod. Mix well with a hand blender. Place into a squirt bottle.
Egg Batter method:
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend on low speed for 30 seconds. Strain through a fine mesh strainer.
Slice the white bread a 1/2 inch thick, and dip in the egg batter. Then cover battered bread with sliced almonds. Repeat this process one more time. In a hot non-stick pan, fry French toast in little bit of butter and flip when golden brown. Place 2 pieces of French toast onto a plate and garnish with powdered sugar and chocolate sauce.
