Tips from the chef
- Use whole wheat bread to increase its fiber content
- 10 slices
- Preparation time: 20 minutes (30 minute wait)
- Cooking time: 15 minutes
- Cut the bread into 10 slices about 4 cm thick. Pace a slot in the upper crust of each slice and dig it to form a deep pocket.
- In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, 3 tbsp. tablespoons icing sugar and almond extract. Stir strawberry mixture and insert it also in all slices of bread. Place them in a shallow dish 4 liter ovenproof (eg measuring 35 cm by 25 cm).
- In another medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, vanilla, salt and remaining sugar (or 1 Tbsp.). Pour this mixture over the bread. Tilt the mold of all the sides so that the bread is completely covered. Let stand 30 minutes or cover and refrigerate for 8 hours.
- Pour a large nonstick skillet or Gaufrière with cooking spray and place it on a medium heat element. When the pan is hot, put the slices of bread and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until browned on both sides.
