by Katie Aubin

Inspired by epicurious.com

Ingredients

for 2 servings

Filling

  • 1 cup (125 g) raspberry
  • 1 cup (125 g) blackberry
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
  • 1 tablespoon black raspberry liqueur
  • 4 oz (115 g) cream cheese, softened

French Toast

  • 4 slices brioche bread
  • ½ cup (120 mL) whole milk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons black raspberry liqueur
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Whipped Cream

  • ½ cup (120 mL) heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Preparation

Under 30 min

  1. Make the filling: Add the raspberries, blackberries, black raspberry liqueur, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup to a large bowl. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes for the berries to macerate.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and remaining tablespoon of maple syrup until smooth.
  3. Spread the filling evenly over the 4 slices of bread. Arrange some of the berries on 2 slices of the bread and top with the other slices of bread. Press to seal the pieces together.
  4. In a shallow dish, whisk together the milk, egg, black raspberry liqueur, and salt.
  5. Melt the butter on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium heat. Quickly dip both sides of the bread pockets in the milk mixture, then transfer to the pan and fry on each side for about 3 minutes, until golden brown.
  6. In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the maple syrup and continue beating until the cream holds medium peaks.
  7. Serve the stuffed French toast with a dollop of maple whipped cream and a scoop of macerated berries with their soaking liquid.
  8. Enjoy!
