Cocoa French Toast with Cream Cheese and Jam

Cocoa French Toast with Cream Cheese and Jam

The fragrance of the cocoa powder and the sweet-tart-savory of the jam and cheese are so delicious! Use your favorite jam, and serve for breakfast or for snack.

Ingredients: 2 slices worth

Processed cheese
2 pieces
Bread (baguette, etc)
2 slices
2 tablespoons
5 to 6 kernels
50 ml
1 tablespoon
★Cocoa powder
about 1/2 tablespoon
to taste
●Vanilla oil or rum
to taste
■Honey, maple syrup, cocoa powder, etc.
to taste
Dried fruit
to taste (optional)


1. Mix the ★ ingredients well. Add the ● ingredients (the rum is optional). Chop the cheese finely. Chop the walnuts roughly, so that they still have a good bite to them.
2. Split the bread slices in half, and spread the jam, cheese and half the walnuts in the middle. Do the same with the second bread slice.
3. Press down lightly on the bread and fillings to stabilize them, and dip in the Step 1 mixture.
4. Melt butter in a frying pan.
5. Pan fry the filled and dipped bread on both sides. It's difficult to tell with the cocoa in the batter, but be sure not to let it burn.
6. I was able to make 4 slices of the size on the left. But what I have written down is for slices of the size on the right (12-13 cm long that's sliced diagonally.)
7. When it's cooked transfer to a serving dish, and optionally add any of the ■ ingredients on top. Here I topped it with dried berries. Whipped cream or custard are great too.
8. Try using fresh or canned fruit instead of jam. Canned pineapple and peaches go well with the toast too. Drain the canned fruit before use.
9. It's also delicious with chopped chocolate.
10. Use this strawberry jam if you prefer Recipe ID: 1134908

Story Behind this Recipe

The processed cheese I used is saltier than cream cheese, and French toast made with this cheese really hits the spot.
I just love the combination of cream cheese and jam.
