Stout French Toast With Bourbon Cream Cheese Frosting

This french toast recipe is probably a bit more work than you’re used to, but I promise that it will be worth it!

Stout French Toast With Bourbon Cream Cheese Frosting

Egg Batter Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup stout
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Frosting Ingredients

  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 oz bourbon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Toast Ingredients

  • 1 loaf braided challah bread cut into 1 1/2″ slices
  • butter for cooking
  • maple syrup
  • chocolate chips or blueberries for garnish

Frosting Instructions

  1. Beat cream cheese, butter and salt in a stand mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add bourbon and mix until well combined.
  2. Reduce speed to low; add 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and mix until fully incorporated.
  3. If mixture feels a bit loose or if a sweeter filling is desired, add an additional tablespoon of powdered sugar at a time until a spreadable frosting consistency is reached.

If preparing in advance, or if there happens to be leftovers, cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Toast Instructions

  1. Create a pocket in each slice of bread by using a paring knife to cut horizontally into the bottom crust.
  2. Carefully fill each bread pocket with 2 tablespoons or so of cream cheese filling.
  3. Thoroughly whisk together all batter ingredients. Place each slice in egg batter, allowing to soak for 10 seconds per side.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large, heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, place prepared slices into skillet to brown.
  5. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, adjusting heat as needed, until golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet in a 200°F oven to keep warm while cooking remaining slices.
  6. Serve warm, topped with maple syrup and berries or chocolate chips, alongside a breakfast stout.
