Ingredients

  • 2 slices Italian bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • RASPBERRY SYRUP:
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Ground cinnamon, optional

Directions

  1. Divide half of the bread cubes between two greased 8-oz. custard cups. Sprinkle with raspberries and cream cheese. Top with remaining bread. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and syrup; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until golden brown, 25-30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Add 1-1/2 cups raspberries, lemon juice, syrup and lemon zest. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Strain and discard seeds; cool slightly.
  4. Gently stir the remaining berries into syrup. Sprinkle French toast cups with cinnamon if desired; serve with syrup.
