French Toast with baked Rhubarb and Maple Mascarpone

I had this in a cafe and have dreamed about it ever since....yummy french toast with a sweet, syrupy and slightly tart rhubarb compote and a gorgeous maple syrup flavoured mascarpone cream. It wasn't hard to replicate - now I can make it whenever I want. It would be a great start on Christmas morning.

YUM!!!!!! I made G Mehigan's french toast with marmalade a few weekends back, as a fan of FT you should give it a go too - the marmalade cuts through the richness & is a lovely addition. :-)
How goes the Golden Whisk competition.... any news from the coal face???
