Ingredients

  • 1 loaf high-quality farmhouse style bread I use Pepperidge Farm
  • 6 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 12 oz frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot, combine the frozen raspberries, 1/2 cup sugar, maple syrup and two tablespoons of apricot jam. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat to simmer the raspberry syrup for about 5 minutes. Stir, remove from heat, and set aside until ready to serve. 

  2. Heat a griddle to medium-high heat.

  3. With a hand mixer, whip together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup of sugar, two tablespoons of apricot jam and sour cream until completely combined.

  4. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, two tablespoons of sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.

  5. Evenly spread the filling mixture in-between two slices of bread to make french toast "sandwiches". I get seven sandwiches from one loaf.

  6. One at a time, evenly dip both sides of your sandwiches in the soaking liquid. Fry on both sides of your well-greased griddle until well browned and filling mixture is "melty".

  7. Serve with raspberry syrup.
