This is a really gourmet style breakfast. Cannoli French toast is decadent and will have everyone asking you for the 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
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
1/2 cup Melted Dark Chocolate (I used the microwave for 30 seconds using a good grade candy bar)
First prepare the bread:
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.
