Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Stuffed French Toast with Cream Cheese, Mascarpone & Blackberry

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, , simple and delicious.

Try making it yourself on Sunday… your family or loved ones will be crying for more…..

Hi, I have been making bento lunch boxes for my toddler son for a year. Its a challenge everyday to think of new bento ideas to excite him. The creations are endless and took a lot of trial and errors. But most importantly, his bento lunches must deliver 3 key goals: exciting presentation (eye appeal), exciting tastes (texture & ingredients) and exciting adventures (dare to try; food play). Recently, I started making my husband lunch bentos too for work after he got envious of seeing beautiful bentos prepared by Japanese wives on Japanese TV network. I am learning and picking up skills from many talented bento makers everyday to improve myself. Here are some of my creations I would like to share with you. Apart from bentos, there some travel stories and little things i enjoy doing related to food and culture in this blog. So enjoy and share your thoughts with me.

  2. This post couldn’t have come at a better time! Check out Aoyama Flower Market Teahouse when you’re in Tokyo. They have the most amazing french toast I have ever tasted! 🙂 I actually wrote a review about it in case you were interested.


    • The Teahouse looks stupendous! Its right up my alley. Even if I don’t eat the french toast (which I doubt I could resist), definitely stop by the cafe while I am in Omotesando shopping. Thanks for the recommendation! Enjoy your trip too.

  4. Hi Ongling, I loved the idea of your stuffed French toast recipe so much, I recreated it with nutella and bananas as I didn’t have marscapone or blackberries 😛
