Red Velvet French Toast With Cheesecake Filling Is The Perfect Mom’s Day Breakfast In Bed

Mother’s Day Calls For Cake For Breakfast And She Will Love You For It!

We are thinking Mom deserves a little decadence.  Red Velvet French Toast  with Cheesecake Filling sounds like the perfect beginning to her day!



Mom’s Day is coming soon.  What is your plan to make your Mom feel oh-so-special?  I can’t think of any Mom who wouldn’t enjoy a little breakfast in bed.  Now what if that included cake?  As a Mom, I say “Yes, please”!!  This delectable recipe from Cafe Delites combines tried and true favorite, French Toast, with the chocolate-y goodness of Red Velvet cake and then makes it even more irresistible by stuffing it with cheesecake filling.  Oh my stars, if my family makes this for me, I might be able to forgive all the ridiculous things that they subject me to all week.  Ah, the life of a Mom to tween boys.

This recipe is really quite easy and I think even my Turkeys might be able to pull it off.  It’s a basic French Toast recipe that is spruced up with some cocoa powder and food coloring to give it the ‘Red Velvet’ spin.  But it is truly elevated by the cream cheese mixture and the drizzle of Nutella!  Oh Nutella…I hear angels singing.  Throw a few raspberries on the top and a dusting of powdered sugar and you’ve got a gourmet masterpiece that Mom won’t be able to get enough of.  If you’re nice, maybe she’ll share.  Or not.  You’d better make extra.
