  3. Stuffed French Toast Recipe

Since I can remember, my family has always given my mom breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. Dad would wake us up early in the morning and my sister Kelsey and I would put together something special and take it to mom on a tray. As I grew older, I started to put more care and thought into the menu and the presentation, culminating in a wonderful and sumptuous stuffed French toast this year. Delicious French toast with lemon-flavored mascarpone cheese filling and served with fresh berries makes the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast!

French toast gets elevated in this recipe, creating a heavenly version that anyone will love. Thick, fluffy bread with cinnamon gets a mascarpone cheese filling, forming a succulent breakfast treat.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 4 minutes
Total Time 19 minutes
Servings 3 servings


For the French toast batter

  • 6 1-inch slices French bread
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp orange juice concentrate
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

For the mascarpone cheese filling

  • ¼ cup mascarpone cheese (or cream cheese) room temperature
  • zest of one medium lemon
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp white granulated sugar


  • Beat the egg and add juice concentrate, cream, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate bowl, mix mascarpone cheese, zest, juice, and sugar until light and fluffy and the sugar dissolves.
  • To assemble toast, heat a heavy skillet over medium heat on the stove. For one serving, take two pieces of French bread (I use homemade but purchased bread will work well as well) and place them in the batter for 5-10 seconds. Take the bread out and spread 2-3 tablespoons of the mascarpone cheese filling on the dry side of one piece. Top with the other slice of bread, the dry side facing the cheese filling.
  • Place assembled toast in a heated skillet for about 2-4 minutes per side until golden brown and the center cheese filling starts to ooze.
