Croissant French Toast Recipe

Croissant French Toast Recipe

More like a scrumptious dessert than a main dish, this rich French toast is topped with a tangy raspberry sauce and a vanilla sauce that includes ice cream. I cut the croissants into shapes with a cookie cutter for my 4-year-old grandson, Patrick. He even asks for the "ice cream sauce" on pancakes! —June Dickenson Philippi, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 croissants, split
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and flour. Stir in cream until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until mixture reaches 160°.
  • 2. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in ice cream and vanilla until ice cream is melted. Place plastic wrap over the surface of the sauce; cool.
  • 3. For berry sauce, combine raspberries and sugar in a saucepan. Simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • 4. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs. Dip both sides of croissants in egg. On a griddle, brown croissants on both sides in butter. Serve with vanilla and berry sauces. Yield: 4 servings.

"Loved it although I had no idea what I was suppose to do with the white cream sauce at first. I decided place the toast in a little pool of the cream sauce and add the berries on top and the mixture with the berries and cream was like heaven."
