Lorilyn's Deep Fried Stuffed French Toast

Lorilyn's Deep Fried Stuffed French Toast created by Tinkerbell

A light & fluffy coating on thick slices of Texas Toast, filled with a lightly sweetened cream cheese with a hint of almond flavoring. This is a recipe I created this morning. DH & I were watching the Food Network last night & saw mention of a restaurant that serves deep fried french toast but no recipe or hints on how it was made. It sounded interesting enough to play around with so I browsed my kitchen & made a few notes on what to try this morning. I had Texas Toast & some cream cheese on hand & it occurred to me that I could make a filling to stuff the extra thick slices of bread with. This is the final result. We loved it & I hope you enjoy it too! *Note - I used a deep fryer for this but you could easily do it in a deep sided pan on the stove or a deep sided griddle. We tried these with my blueberry/raspberry syrup from Recipe #22066, with lazyme's Recipe #330075, store-bought orange marmalade and maple syrup.

ingredients

directions

  • In stand up mixer or in small bowl, combine cream cheese, almond extract and powdered sugar until fluffy.
  • Fit a cake decorating bag with a large tip (star or round) and fill with cream cheese mixture. Set aside.
  • Using a serrated bread knife, slice each piece of Texas Toast into half on the diagonal.
  • Along the newly cut diagonal edge, use the tip of the knife to gently make a one inch slice into the center of the bread, making sure the slice runs parallel to the top and bottom of the bread.
  • Insert the decorator tip into the opening & squeeze out about a teaspoon or so of filling. With a thumb & finger, gently pinch the opening to close it back up & cover the filling. (This could also be done with a ziplock baggie with a corner cut off, although not quite as easily.).
  • In mixer or another medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt.
  • Beat in milk and eggs until batter is smooth. Pour into deep wide bowl or into a pie plate, for dipping.
  • Pre-heat deep fryer or griddle (about 350°) and when ready dip filled slices of bread into batter, turn once and place into fryer basket. (Mine will hold two slices at a time.)
  • Fry 2 minutes or until lightly browned & crispy looking then turn each slice over with a pair of tongs and fry the other side for 2 minutes or until done.
  • Remove with tongs to paper towel lined plate to drain. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
  • Repeat with the rest of the slices.
  • Serve immediately (careful - filling is hot) with your choice of syrups, jams or jellies.

    Wow! Very tasty! Not something you want to make very often though. I used a half cup normal milk, half cup buttermilk, to add to the fattyness, which gave it a very rich flavor! Thanks for posting!

    This is Goooood! I fixed these this morning for brunch and enjoyed every bite! Don't have a deep fryer so went the deep-sided pan method. Sprinkled with powdered sugar. I might try these again with a little crushed pineapple in the cream cheese. Thnx for posting, Tink :waving:. Made for ZWT5 for RRR.

    Ok, all I had was garlic Texas toast, so I cut French bread loaves to make this. My DD helped with everything but the frying- and we loved them. The filling was kinda tart with the cream cheese but a great contrast to the sweet outside( I dusted mine with powdered sugar). Very good!Made for THE GROOVY GASTROGNOMES as a family pick ZWT5.
