For the red velvet French toast:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 Eggs

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • A few drops organic red food coloring
  • 8 slices toast bread, sliced in ½ diagonally

For the vanilla bean cheesecake filling:

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

To garnish:

  • Melted chocolate (optional)
  • A few fresh berries (optional)
  • Confectioners’ sugar (optional)



To make your cheesecake filling:

  • Frist, prepare the filling: in a medium-sized bowl, combine the sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla, and whip until fluffy and light. Set aside and prepare the French toast.

To make the French toast:

  • In a bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, sugar, cocoa, vanilla, and food coloring until smooth and lump free.
  • Dip both sides of bread slices into the mixture (press lightly to soak through entirely) until evenly coated.
  • Then, heat a nonstick skillet/pan over low-medium heat, apply the bread slices and fry the both sides until just cooked through. Remove and apply onto a warmed plate.
  • Next, spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons filling onto six toast splits; spread to coat and top with the rest bread halves to make a sandwich.
  • To garnish, drizzle with melted chocolate and top with remaining cream (if desired); dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm with a few berries.
