Ingredients

For the French Toast

  • 1 loaf (about 12 slices) Texas Toast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen and thawed mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cut strawberries)
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For the Fruit Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen and thawed mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cut strawberries)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

For the French Toast

  • In a greased 9x13 baking dish, place half of bread and place cream cheese and berries over bread. Top with the remaining bread.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract and whisk well until well-blended. 
  • Pour egg mixture over bread mixture. Cover with foil.
  • Bake, covered, in a 350 F oven for about 20 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake for another 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and center is set.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand for about 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with fruit sauce.

For the Fruit Sauce

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine berries, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil, mashing fruits with the back of the spoon and stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  • Lower heat and simmer uncovered for about 7 to 10 minutes or until berries are softened. 
  • Slowly add cornstarch slurry, whisking regularly to prevent lumps. Continue to cook for 2 to 3 minute or until sauce is thickened.
  • Stir in butter until melted. Serve syrup over french toast.
