Irresistibly creamy Irish toast
What’s Irish toast, you ask? It’s French toast, but with Baileys instead of maple syrup. Advantage Ireland.
¾ cup Baileys Original Irish Cream
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
½ cup blueberries
¼ cup sugar
1 ¼ cup whipping cream
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
8 thick slices French bread
¼ cup butter
For fruit topping:
Toss together strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and 2 tbsp sugar, and set aside.
For Baileys whipped cream:
Using an electric mixer, beat ¾ cup of whipping cream with powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Stir in 2 tbsp Baileys Original Irish Cream and set aside.
For the Irish toast:
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the remaining sugar, remaining whipping cream, remaining Baileys Original Irish Cream, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon until blended. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. In batches, dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and add to the skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown, adding remaining butter as necessary.
Serve each Irish Toast slice with the fruit topping and a dollop of Baileys whipped cream.
