Ingredients

  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon butter plus extra for cooking the bread.
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 6 slices thick of Brioche Tressee
  • Powdered sugar for garnish

Instructions

  • In a small pan, heat the berries, 1 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp sugar over a medium heat.
  • Let simmer for for about 3 minutes and the mixture becomes a little thicker.
  • Transfer the mascarpone to a bowl and add the honey and whisk until the honey is mixed through.
  • Whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cardamom.
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and place an oven-safe dish onto the top rack.
  • In another non stick pan, melt about 1 tbsp butter until hot.
  • Dip one slice of the brioche into the cream mixture making sure to fully submerge it.
  • Shake off the excess and add it to the pan.
  • Cook over a medium heat until it starts to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Flip it over and repeat with the other side.
  • Transfer the brioche to a the dish in the oven to stay warm and repeat with the rest of the bread *see notes*
  • Once all of the brioche has been cooked, lay a slice on your plate.
  • Spread some of the mascarpone cheese on it and then add a spoonful of the berry mixture.
  • Add another slice of brioche on top and repeat until you have the french toast three high.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve at once.

Notes

You will have to wipe out the pan after every slice of brioche with a paper towel because the butter will start to burn and the brioche will be covered in little black specks.
