I have to say this recipe is something special to my husband and I. We went to a B&B for Valentines weekend and the morning we woke up with snow on the ground. umm it never snows in this area. Also the sweet smell of Raspberries and Coffee in the air. We walked down and saw all the breakfast goodies on the table and coming out of the Kitchen was the Raspberry and Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast ..oooo was soooo good. that was the last yummy before we started out a new path in our lives. Losing Weight and living Healthier lives.Hope you all enjoy

I am a firm believer that if a dish has fruit in it then it must be good for you! Well, this delicious breakfast treat is good for your soul and spirits, if nothing else. It is a snap to prepare and so decadently delicious.
We had to do some hunting before we found a bakery that carried challah bread, but it was time well spent. We used plain, but I suspect the raisin variety would be good too.
NOTE: If desired, you can substitute frozen raspberries. Thaw and drain; reserve juice for another use.
