An indulgent french toast stuffed with a raspberry cream cheese mixture. For those who detest bread pudding, soggy toast, and the like, fear not! This recipe gives you the perfect amount of crisp, and the thick slices prevent an over-absorption of the egg mixture; leaving the insides nice and bread-y. Breakfast in bed just got that much better.
|For the filling:|
|Fresh Raspberries||1 Cup|
|Cream Cheese, softened||4 Ounces|
|For the toast:|
|Loaf of Bread, such as challah or a soft Italian||1|
|Butter, unsalted melted||2 Tablespoons|
|Vanilla Extract||1 Teaspoon|
|Cinnamon, ground||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
To make the filling, combine the raspberries and sugar in a medium bowl. Mix well and set aside to macerate for about 15 minutes. Stir in the cream cheese until well blended.
To prepare the toast, take your loaf and cut four thick slices; making each about 1 1/2-2 inches thick. With a small knife, carefully cut a slit in the top center of each slice to create a pocket, taking care not to cut all the way through to the other side.
In a shallow baking dish or pie plate, whisk together the egg and milk. Whisk in the melted butter and vanilla. Stir in the flour, cinnamon, and salt and whisk until smooth (You'll likely have some flour bits no matter how much you whisk, that's fine!).
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Fill the pocket of each slice of bread with some of the filling mixture. Place the filled slices of bread in the egg mixture, one or two at a time, soaking about 30-40 seconds per side. Remove the bread to a plate and allow the excess batter to drip off.
Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the heated skillet and swirl to coat. Add the filled slices of toast to the skillet in a single layer. Cook until light golden brown and crisp, about 1-2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread, adding more butter to the skillet as needed.
Serve immediately with maple syrup, powdered sugar, and fresh raspberries, as desired.

One of the best parts of growing up in Jersey for me was hanging out at the mall with my friends. My teenage metabolism allowed me to indulge in mall food on a weekly basis, this included Cinnabon. Granted I could never eat one on my own and always ended up sharing it with a few of my friends, it was the best part of my week with my girlfriends. As usual,when I feel nostalgic, I started baking. The rolls are super soft and airy and the lemon and walnuts really add a nice zest to the cinnamon roll which cuts the sweetness nicely.
This is a more refined version of scalloped potatoes. It you like scalloped potatoes you will love potato pave as it adds a layer of texture that cannot be found in scalloped potatoes.
