Sounds divine!!! This would be a fabulous dish for a brunch; in place of the raspberries, you can certainly use Strawberries and use Strawberry cream cheese. Make ahead: Prepare the French toast up to 24 hours ahead of time. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until time to bake. To bake the French toast, remove plastic wrap; cover with foil and bake as directed. Recipe from Eat Better America.

Fabulous dessert although I did not make the sauce !! I did double the recipe, using real eggs and that worked out really well. I mixed my organic red currant jam into the cream cheese as a time saving method and then layered it between the bread. I left it soaking while I went to walk the dogs then came back and put it in the oven. We all loved this and could hardly stop eating it. Made for ZWT8.

I made this for Christmas morning breakfast for hubby and I. I halved the recipe and used strawberry cream cheese with sf strawberry jam and splenda as the sweetener. I also added a teaspoon of almond extract to the liquid mixture, and used egg beaters. I made the topping with strawberries..Could not believe how simple and very tasty this breakfast dish is..Thank You for sharing JanuaryBride, will be made often here!
