Surprise-Inside French Toast


  1. 1/3 loaf of white bread, unsliced
    3 tablespoons honey
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    5 strawberries
    1/2 banana
    1/2 cup blueberries
    1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    Scoop of ice cream
    Whipped cream, for garnish
    Drizzle of honey, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Slice the loaf of bread in half and cut out a large square chunk in the center, leaving the rest of the bread intact (like a square bread bowl). Slice the chunk you removed into cubes.
  3. Mix honey, butter, and cinnamon together into a bowl and evenly coat the bread squares and the inside of the hollowed-out bread. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  4. While the bread is baking, chop strawberries and bananas into small squares. Mix blueberries, chocolate chips, strawberries, and bananas into a bowl and set aside.
  5. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool for 1 minute. Fill the hollowed-out bread with the berry and chocolate mixture and the bread squares. Top it off with ice cream, whipped cream, and a drizzle of honey. Enjoy immediately!
