Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast
- Butter for greasing
CREAM CHEESE FILLING
- 8 oz Cream cheese at room temperature
- ⅓ cup Sugar (white)
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 Egg
- 2 tbsp Lemon juice
- 4 Eggs
- ¾ cup + 2 tbsp milk (low fat or full fat)
- 3 tbsp Sugar (white)
- Pinch of salt
FRENCH TOAST BAKE
- 12 Fresh slices sandwich bread crusts removed
- 2 tbsp Butter Diced,optional
- 2 tbsp Brown sugar optional
MACERATED STRAWBERRIES (OPTIONAL)
- 1 Punnet strawberries sliced
- 1 tbsp Sugar
- Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Generously butter a 10cm x 21cm / 4" x 8" loaf tin
- Make Cream Cheese Filling – beat (or mix) the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until combined. Then add the egg and lemon juice, then beat/mix until smooth, light and fluffy.
- Whisk the Egg Mixture ingredients together in a large bowl
- Dip 2 slices of bread into the Egg Mixture. Because you're using fresh bread, it should soak through with egg mixture pretty quickly.
- Line the base of the loaf tin with the egg dipped bread. Cut bread if necessary to fill in gaps. Repeat twice more so you have 3 layers of egg dipped bread.
- Spread all the Cream Cheese filling over the bread. Then top with two more layers of egg-dipped bread.
- Dot surface with butter and scatter over the sugar.
- Bake for 40 minutes until golden and puffed. Check at 30 minutes – if the top is already dark golden, then cover loosely with foil and return to the oven to finish baking
- Allow to rest for 15 minutes in the tin before turning out onto a cooling rack to rest for a further 5 minutes.
- To serve, topped with Macerated Strawberries
- Combine strawberries and sugar in a bowl and set aside to "sweat" for at least 20 minutes.
