cinnamon Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast
Here you will find a very good, easy stuffed French toast and a couple variations: a maple cream cheese French toast and a raspberry almond.
This is an unusual recipe with flour added to the egg and milk mixture, more like a tempura batter.
6 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon chips
10 slices good quality bread
1 large egg
1 cup cold milk
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
butter for frying
- Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and cinnamon chips in a bowl. Spread the mixture on half the slices of bread and top with the other half to form sandwiches.
- Whisk the egg, milk, and vanilla together. Gradually stir in the flour.
- Heat a skillet with a couple tablespoons of butter in it. When the skillet is hot, dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture, turning to cover both sides, and then place them in the hot skillet. Cook one side of the sandwiches and then the other until the French toast is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
You can use this basic recipe and mix in three or four tablespoons of your favorite jam or jelly instead of the chips.
Maple Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast: Substitute maple chips for the cinnamon chips.
Raspberry Almond Cheese Stuffed French Toast: Omit the cinnamon chips and vanilla. Add three or four tablespoons seedless raspberry jam and one teaspoon almond extract to the cream cheese.
