Rum and Raisin French Toast
I was dreaming up some brunch ideas for this week’s #BrunchWeek and I thought of french toast but not any ordinary french toast, oh no.
A sandwiched french toast with something yummy in the middle like Rum and Raisin French Toast.
Something that would go well with yummy bacon and for some reason, this idea popped into my head. I have done two days of savory dishes and now for something sweet.
I know you will love this one. ENJOY!!!
Don’t forget about all the other great recipes we have here to share with you.
Some wonderful brunch ideas to help celebrate Mom’s big day plus the biggest and best giveaway to date with over $1800 worth of prizes. Now you can’t get much better than that.
- 1-250 gm. tub spreadable light cream cheese
- 1 tsp. maple extract
- 1 tsp. Turbinado Raw Cane Sugar and Stevia Blend or white sugar to taste
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup gold rum
- 1/3 cup hot water
- 5 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 8 slices of white bread
- Maple syrup
- Bacon, optional
- Soak raisins in rum and hot water for 1 hour. Drain saving 1 Tbsp. of the rum/water mixture. Set raisins aside.
- Mix the cream cheese, maple extract, sugar, and the reserved 1 Tbsp. of rum/water together and blend well. Mix in the raisins.
- Whisk the eggs and milk together. Dunk the bread in the egg mixture, both sides, and place on a Teflon grill or non-stick pan that is warmed over medium-low heat.
- Flip and brown the other side. Spread a quarter of the cream cheese mixture on top and top with another slice of bread that has been dunked both sides into the egg mixture and browned on the one side.
- Place toasted side down on top of the cream cheese mixture. Flip sandwich over and brown the last side and let cream cheese heat through.
- Repeat for the other sandwiches.
