Quick and Elegant French Toast

“This is the first thing I ever actually "cooked" for my fiance. It's quick and easy, and you can substitute different ingredients for the toppings for a totally different meal every time!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix whipping cream, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Dip bread in egg mixture.
  3. Cook until golden brown in skillet coated with melted butter or cooking spray (I like to add more butter in between each batch).
  4. Meanwhile, mix jam and juice in a small saucepan and simmer until slightly thick and syrupy.
  5. Blend cream cheese and fruit in blender or food processor until smooth. If you are not using whipped cream cheese, you may want to warm it slightly so it will mix better.
  6. Top toast slices with syrup and/or cream cheese mixture. The syrup serves best from a jar with a spout, like you might use for a homemade salad dressing. A leftover syrup bottle would also be good.
  7. Variations: Substitute other flavors of jam and/or juice, or a different fruit in the cream cheese mix. A small amount of nutmeg is also good in the batter.
