What Do the French Put on French Toast?

The French tend to lean toward simplicity, with the most popular topping for pain perdu (the French name for this dish) being powdered sugar. They might also opt for some local honey or fresh fruit, choosing only one or two French toast toppings so that the flavors of each part of the dish can shine.
