Churro French Toast

Churro French Toast

I had seen the advertisements for the new Albany Delight range on social media and I couldn’t wait to taste them. The flavours sounded so decadent and exciting. The range includes the raisin and cinnamon bread, butter and cinnamon and popcorn bread.

I bought a loaf of the raisin and cinnamon as I thought this would be a hot cross bun in bread form…and I love all things cinnamon. Yum!

My first thought was to make french toast with this yummy bread, but with a little twist, to make it even more delicious and decadent. I had made a churro french toast with ordinary bread previously, and I knew it would be tastier with this bread. Basically, it is buttery golden french toast dunked in a cinnamon sugar and coated in a cream cheese drizzle.

If you notice from my blog posts, I don’t enjoy very rich and overly sweet foods, and neither does my family. We enjoy a balanced eating plan, with healthy and not-so-healthy treats, but Balance is key!¬†I love the cream cheese idea on this french toast, as it cuts through the sugary sweetness and makes this treat palatable and enjoyable.

French toast is ideal as a weekend breakfast or an afternoon sweet treat ! Enjoy! Please try this recipe with the other flavours as well, I am sure it would be delicious and tag me in your creations !
