Red Velvet Churro French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons red food coloring
  • 1 loaf brioche bread
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temp.
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

  • For french toast: whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, sugar, vanilla, food coloring, and cocoa in a shallow bowl until smooth and lump free. We recommend using an electric hand mixer.
  • Dip bread slices into red velvet egg wash and press lightly a few times to soak through completely. Flip each slice and repeat with  each bread slice until slices are all evenly coated. 
  • Heat a large nonstick pan/skillet over low-medium heat and fry the bread in batches of 3 or 4, turning once until just cooked through. Remove and place onto a warmed plate. 
  • For icing: combine cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl. We recommend using an electric hand mixer, and mix until smooth. Transfer icing to piping/ Ziploc bag and pipe onto french toast. Dig in!
