Stuffed French Toast

Print Friendly

We love french toast around our house and I came across this recipe and knew I had to make it!  It was SO good!  We ate it for breakfast and then ate the leftovers after dinner!  This would make an awesome Father's Day breakfast!

Ingredients

Batter:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup medium-diced banana
  • 1/8 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • Butter, as needed
  • 4 (2-inch thick) pieces challah bread (I just used a loaf of french bread from the bakery!)
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving, optional (We used whipped cream)
  • Fresh berries, for serving, optional

Directions

Batter:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well until incorporated. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Filling:
Fold all ingredients together in a bowl until well incorporated but not completely smooth.

Syrup:
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and let reduce by 1/3.

French Toast:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat a large saute pan and then add butter. Dredge the bread in the batter and place in the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides, approximately 2 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool. Divide filling between 2 pieces of the bread top with the remaining 2 pieces of bread. Transfer french toast to oven and bake for 8 minutes.
Cut each French toast in half and serve with the cinnamon syrup and, if desired, a large scoop of vanilla ice cream and fresh berries.

    that’s lookin’ a lot like dessert! Very yummy.

    I found you … hmmm, via a bunny trail: I linked to Organizing Junkie’s menu plan Monday; Liz at Fresh Plate commented on me; I checked out Liz’s blog and saw your comment about posting her chicken skewers, so voila! Here I am!

    It’s pretty special that you are all teaming up together to blog. Loved your bio and sweet words about your parents, and about one another.

    Stopping by from Cast Party Wednesday! This looks YUMMY! My husband adores the stuffed french toast at IHOP, but this looks like it would run circles around that! If I can get to the store in time, I would love to add this to Sunday’s breakfast menu. Thanks!

    Well, first off, this recipe looks delicious. But I’ve been getting recipes from this site for awhile and come to find out, my sister married Camille’s brother-in-law :) I didn’t even know that I knew one of the “6 sisters”! Kinda funny :)
