Cannoli and Berry Stuffed French Toast

This is a really gourmet style breakfast. Cannoli French toast is decadent and will have everyone asking you for the recipe

When Mom was still alive, I wanted to create something for Mother's Day one year that was extremely decadent and combine breakfast with her favorite dessert.
That's where this idea came into play. Mom loved it. Over the years, as she grew older she had diabetes and I had to learn to make everything sugarless and of course bread was a factor as well with the carbs.

I was happy she got to enjoy this before that happened.
With all the low carb breads and sugarfree jams this could have been recreated sugar free back then. Never the less she enjoyed this great brunch for Mother's Day.

Cannoli and Berry Stuffed French Toast Recipe



1 loaf of thick baguette or thick bread

1-8 ounce container ricotta cheese

3/4 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons Marsala wine

1-6 ounce bag chocolate morsels

2 eggs

1/2 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon cocoa powder

1 teaspoon powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

4 to 5 tablespoons of olive oil or 4 teaspoons of  unsalted butter mixed with 2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 can of Triple berry pie filling or use Boysenberries, Raspberries and Blackberries packed in heavy syrup mixed together and drained

Marsala wine

 1/2 cup Melted Dark Chocolate (I used the microwave for 30 seconds using a good grade candy bar)

First prepare the bread:

 Cannoli and Berry Stuffed French Toast 

Cut your bread every inch but not all the way through leaving a pocket to fill in between both slices. 

 In a medium size bowl, combine the ricotta, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until well combined. Then fold in the chocolate chips. Using around a tablespoon stuff each pocket on the slice of bread, place on a cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator while making the topping, around 1/2 hour.

Combine in a small bowl cocoa powder, powdered sugar and cinnamon. In a medium size mixing bowl, add the cocoa sugar mix to the milk, two eggs, Marsala and whisk together well or put in a blender this should look like a  very light milk chocolate milk in color and very smooth. Take out the bread. Coat each side of the stuffed bread slices in the chocolate coating milk mixture. Heat griddle or fry pan adding (I use only the oil) olive oil or butter. Cook on each side for no more than 3 minutes or until golden brown.

On a plate drizzle some melted chocolate over the bottom with fork tines. Place the cannoli toast on the plate then pour the berries over the Italian cannoli toast.
