This week I thought I’d try French toast again, this time with a sweet twist. I found the recipe on the back of a frozen raspberry packet.
Here is the recipe
250g ricotta cheese (small tub)
2 tbsp castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
16 slices of baguette (or small ciabatta loaf)
1 1/4 cups frozen raspberries (plus extra to serve)
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp castor sugar (extra)
Icing sugar and honey to serve
First make your ricotta mixture by mixing the ricotta, sugar and vanilla into a small bowl.
Get your slices of bread and top half of them with a layer of ricotta and top with raspberries. Sandwich the extra bread slices on top of the ones with ricotta and raspberries on them. You should have eight little ricotta and raspberry sandwiches.
Make the egg mixture by beating together the egg, milk and castor sugar. Get a large heavy-based pan and put in on a medium-low heat place a bit of butter in and wait until the butter starts to bubble before adding the french toast. Get your little sandwiches and dip each side in egg and place into the pan. Cook for one to two minutes on each side until golden.
Place two french toast sandwiches on a plate and top with honey and icing sugar. Add extra raspberries and serve!
So, was this my ideal breakfast?
