Your family is going to love me for this one!
Mascarpone and peaches are two of my favorite things. Put them both on top of some stellar French toast with a little real maple syrup and vanilla paste and well…you have heaven on a plate. (This post contains affiliate links.)
Of course french toast is all about the bread. Some people like their french toast fluffy but I like mine hearty and dense. Whichever you choose, make sure to use a good quality bread day old bread. Day old bread just works better for French toast.
Mascarpone cheese is similar to American cream cheese but it’s a little creamier and sweeter. It makes the perfect creamy balance to the sweet peaches and maple syrup.
The Recipe: French Toast with Peaches and Mascarpone
You will need: a griddle or pan (cast iron works best), vanilla paste (I get the quart because I use it all the time and it saves money!), and real maple syrup. (affiliate links) If you prefer you can sub mascarpone with cottage cheese, that is delicious too! I make my french toast with homemade almond milk, my recipe here.
- 4 slices of bread (I use a hearty whole grain artisan bread from Whole Foods Market
- 2 ripe peaches
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup vanilla almond milk see my recipe above
- 2-3 oz mascarpone cheese
- 4 T real maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla pasta
- 2 T butter more if desired
Slice bread 1" thick
Peel and dice peaches
place eggs and almond milk in a small bowl and whisk
In a small bowl combine vanilla paste and real maple syrup
place pan on medium heat, add butter and allow to melt
When butter and pan are hot, dip bread in almond milk/egg mixture and place in pan.
Cook till first side is golden brown, flip bread and cook other side till golden
remove form pan, set one piece of bread on a plate, spread with mascarpone cheese, sprinkle with diced peaches. Top with second piece of bread.
Use a small spoon to place a scoop of mascarpone on top of bread, pour peach dices over allowing some to fall onto the plate, and drizzle lightly with syrup and vanilla paste.
