Mother’s Day Stuffed French Toast
This rich and tasty treat is sure to please mom. And best of all, unlike regular french toast, you assemble it all the night before. In the morning, just pop it in the oven and wait for the tempting aromas to fill the kitchen.
3 cups day old raisin bread or cinnamon raisin bread, torn into 1″ cubes
1/2 c light cream
3/4 c milk
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c dark brown sugar
1/4 c real maple syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1 8 oz package cream cheese, cubed
1 1/2 c raspberries or blue berries or sliced strawberries
1/2 c butter, sliced or cubed
- Grease a 9 x 11 baking pan.
- Put 1/2 of the bread into the bottom of the pan.
- In a separate bowl, combine the cream, milk, eggs, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, sugar and syrup.
- Beat until slightly foamy and well mixed.
- Set aside.
- Distribute the cream cheese evenly over the bread in the pan.
- Top with the berries.
- Cover with the remaining bread cubes.
- Pour the milk and egg mixture slowly over the entire pan (if you pour too fast, the bread and filling will mix.)
- Dot the top with the butter.
- Cover the pan tightly with foil and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, heat oven to 350 degrees F. Leave pan covered and place in oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly throughout. Serve hot with extra syrup, plus chilled berries for garnish. Perfect with hot herbal tea or rich cocoa.
