with LA TROP Wheat Beer

By Heather Lewis [BeerBitty.com]

made out of BEER LA TROP WHITE

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese from Italy
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 orange, zested
  • a dozen of raspberries
  • 6-1/2″ thick slices of French brioche
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) wheat beer : LA TROP BLANCHE
  • 1/2 cup nice heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (Bourbon)
  • 1 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Spiked Orange Syrup

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup bourbon or rhum
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Directions

To make the filling, mix together mascarpone, cream cheese, powdered brown sugar, zest of orange in a medium bowl until well combined.

Create a pocket in each slice of bread by using a paring knife to make a horizontal cut in the bread, taking care not to cut through the opposite edges. Carefully fill each bread pocket with the mascarpone filling.

Set oven to Warm or the lowest temperature. While preheating, whisk together eggs, wheat beer LA TROP BLANCHE, heavy cream, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a baking dish. Melt 2 Tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, place the stuffed slices into the batter and soak for 10 seconds per side. Let any excess batter drip back into the dish then cook in the skillet for 4 to 5 minutes per side, adjusting the heat as needed, until golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet placed in the oven to keep warm while preparing the remaining slices.

To make the syrup, combine brown sugar, orange juice, bourbon, and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir occasionally until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes until reduced slightly.

Top mascarpone stuffed french toast with syrup, garnish with supremed orange slices and raspberries, even fresh minth, if desired, and serve with a citrus-forward wheat beer LA TROP BLANCHE.

Bon appétit !
