Ricotta stuffed French Toast with Strawberry Compote on top

Nothing can start off your morning  right than a good satisfying whole hearty breakfast.Well this french toast made of wheat bread with flax topped with strawberry compote will definitely set your mood right.

I received this Nature Pride's Hearty Wheat with Flax bread from Foodbuzz . French Toast is one of the quickest breakfast to make when one is hungry and want something in a jiffy.I make this when i want something different than the usual dosas and idlis.


Bread - 4-6 slices
Egg - 1
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsp
orange or vanilla extract - 1 tsp

For Stuffing:-

Ricotta cheese - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 2 tbsp ( add more or little depending on ur taste)
Orange zest - of 1 orange

For Compote:-

Strawberry - 1 cup ,  sliced
sugar - 1 tbsp
water - 1 tbsp


First to prepare the strawberry compote heat a pan and stir in all the ingredients for the sauce.Let it slowly come to a boil.Cook it until the strawberries become soft.Keep aside.
In a small bowl combine ingredients for the stuffing and keep aside.In another bowl whisk egg,milk,sugar and orange extract. Keep aside.

Heat a pan.Spread some butter on it.Now take 2 slices of bread and spread some generous amount of the ricotta stuffing on one of them .Place the other one on top.Dip this in the egg-milk mixture and place it on the heated griddle.Cook it on a medium low flame for a 3-4 mins or until it turns brown.Turn it and cook for the same amount of time.Serve it warm topped with the strawberry sauce and some powdered sugar.
