I'm much less picky now, but my breakfasts still tend toward the simple side. Toast, bagels, eggs-- the usual. Except when I venture out to the flea market for a Dough donut (their blood orange donuts are divine and well worth the walk) or I head out for brunch with friends.
I had a very similar dish to this one at James Restaurant during a day-after-my-birthday brunch with my good friend Yana, and every bite felt like a treat. Then, I saw this restaurant on Beantown Baker, and I just couldn't resist. Jen said this recipe elevates french toast to a new level, and she was certainly correct.
While I doubt anyone could stay healthy if they had this french toast for breakfast every morning, it is absolutely delicious. The bread seemed almost caramelized on the outside, and there was just the right amount of sweetness from the raspberry and cream cheese mixture in every bite.
Have someone make this for you on your birthday or make it for yourself. Then pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit down and enjoy.
