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.
