Holidays like Easter and Mother's Day are perfect for a proper brunch, especially one that incorporates spring ingredients. This Easter, we took inspiration from the gorgeous berries we found at the market and put a made this Challah French Toast with Whipped Ricotta. We upgraded the French Toast batter with the addition of Grand Marnier, and swapped out syrup for a creamy ricotta topping.
Our whipped ricotta topping is similar to a cannoli filling. When you make this, be sure to seek out hand dipped ricotta. It tends to be smoother in texture and more flavorful. We used Bellwether Farms ricotta and it was perfection. You may want to make extra topping because it’s so delicious your guests will be coming back for more!
