I am quite hooked on french toasts these days, kept making them for weekend brunch, and everyone in my family has sweet tooth, so its popular. My teenage son usually sleeps in however, if its french toast day, he will be up “ΟεΟ∴” instantaneously. This time, I stuffed the pain de mie with mixed mascarpone, cream cheese and blackberries before I soak them in egg mixture and panfry them. I would normally drizzle homemade buttery cherry sauce, a little squeeze of lime and top with lots of fruits and BACON!!!! The symphony of different tastes and texture is just fabulous.
Ingredients for the stuffing (for 4 thick slices of bread): 1/3 cup cream cheese (room temperature), 1/2 cup mascarpone (cold), rind of 1 lemon, 3 tablespoons icing sugar, a dust of cinnamon powder and 8-10 black berries.
Mix everything well except the black berries which are lightly tossed in the end before filling 2 slices of bread with the stuffing.
Just use any french toast egg mixture recipe you are comfortable with. Mine is adapted from recipe by Robert Irvine on Food Network website, http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/robert-irvine/french-toast-recipe.html , simple and delicious.
