Cannoli Stuffed French Toast

Cannoli Stuffed French Toast

My son and I love cannolis, so we took our favorite Italian pastry and melded it with a breakfast classic to come up with this delicious combination of Cannoli Stuffed French Toast. It made a delicious Sunday brunch meal and it was enjoyed by all. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did



  • 4 eggs
  • 240 ml (1 cup) milk, I used almond milk
  • 2 tsp (10g) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (46 g) all purpose flour
  • Loaf of French bread, I used one that was about 3″ in diameter and about 2ft long


  • 16 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup (1 to 2 oz) powdered sugar, depending on sweetness preference, plus more for dusting on top
  • 4 tbsp (60g) mini chocolate chips, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon


  1. In a blender, mix eggs, milk, vanilla and flour until well combined, and pour into a shallow dish (I use a pie plate). Meanwhile, heat and grease griddle to 350°F or pan over medium heat.
  2. In a separate bowl combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar and mini chocolate chips and whisk until combined.
  3. Slice loaf of bread into slices (I preferred thinner sliced, 1/2″-3/4″ but can be thicker if preferred). Spoon 1-2 tbsp of ricotta mixture on a slice of bread and top with another slice, pressing pieces together without squeezing mixture out the sides.
  4. Once bread pieces are sandwiched with filling, dip them into the custard mix in the shallow dish, flipping the bread to get each side coated.
  5. Place bread on griddle and cook the first side until golden brown. Using a spatula, flip to cook the second side until golden brown and remove from the griddle. Dust with powdered sugar and chocolate chips for serving.
  6. Enjoy!
