EASY BRUNCH HACK - French Toast Soufflé with Candied Rice Krispies Recipe


Our French Toast Soufflé with Candied Rice Krispies will make mornings feel extra special! This recipe is super easy, decadent and will make anyone wake up in the AM.

Ingredients:

Candied Rice Krispies
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp water
4 cups Rice Krispies cereal

French Toast
2 egg breads (challahs), crusts left on and cubed (approximately 14 cups)
1 (8oz/250g) package cream cheese, softened
6 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Caramel Topping
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 tbsp corn syrup

Directions:

1) For the candied Rice Krispies, in a large pot (that is both deep and has a wide bottom), bring the sugar and water to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute without stirring. Gently stir in Rice Krispies and continue to cook over medium heat, just until they are golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately pour Rice Krispies onto a baking sheet to cool. Once cooled they can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
2) For the French toast, coat a 13x9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place cubed bread evenly throughout the dish.
3) Place the cream cheese in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese at medium speed until smooth. Add one egg at a time, mixing well after each addition and making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Whisk in milk, half-and-half, maple syrup and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Pour over bread cubes to moisten evenly, pressing lightly to submerge the bread. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.
4) Once ready to bake, remove baking dish from refrigerator and preheat oven to 350°F.
5) For the caramel topping, in a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until well combined, about 2 minutes. Immediately pour over French toast and cover with candied Rice Krispies. Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until puffed and golden, about 40-45 minutes.

Yeah, monkey bread. But what do you expect when other 1950s recipes had such names as “Cantaloupe Pickles” and “Clever Judy Filling”? Also called bubble loaf or golden crown, monkey bread is pull-apart layers of sinfully sugared yeast dough dripping in sticky caramel glaze and topped with sweet icing. So addictive, even Nancy Reagan served it regularly at the White House. More

“Bite Me” began with this recipe after I bought a cranberry and white chocolate cookie from a local bakery three years ago.
