Star French Toast

This french toast is delicious. It tastes similar to some mascarpone stuffed french toast that I had at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas last year.

Star French Toast

  • 8 slices french bread cut into 1 inch slices
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream (I used 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk so I could feel a little better about it)
  • ¼ cup honey (heated in the microwave until runny)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup butter

    Cut bread into one inch slices. In a medium bowl, beat together, eggs, cream, honey, salt, cinnamon, orange zest and vanilla extract.

    On a griddle melt butter over medium high heat. Dip both sides of bread in the mixture, transfer to the hot griddle. Brown on both sides and transfer to a warm plate. Serve with whipping cream, fresh raspberries, and chopped pecans.

  • P.S. These taste great with the buttermilk syrup that Heidi has posted on this site.
