Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a delicious breakfast served in bed. If you’re tired of gifting your loved one chocolates and flowers on February 14th, a sweet breakfast-in-bed gesture is sure to impress – after all, isn’t the way to anyone’s heart through their stomach?
Here are three romantic dishes that are sure to impress your Valentine.
To make the batter, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and ½ cup sugar in a large bowl. Whisk until combined.
To make the filling, fold together the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, lemon zest, raspberry jam and 1/3 cup raspberries.
Cut the challah bread into 2-inch-thick slices. Then, use your knife to cut a pocket in each slice of bread. Spoon a tablespoon of filling into each pocket.
Dip each piece of challah bread into the batter. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add two pieces of toast. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden. Repeat with remaining pieces of toast. Serve with maple syrup, powdered sugar and fresh raspberries.
