My little household LOVES breakfast. We love waffles, pancakes, biscuits, pastries, donuts, anddd french toast! When I was pregnant with my boys I became obsessed with french toast, and apparently the craving just never left me. Griffin especially is always asking for french toast…
This morning I was feeling like trying something new…
And honestly these Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-ups might quite possibly be the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth. I’ve made french toast roll-ups before but never with the combo of raspberry jam and cream cheese. Yum!! I promise you guys will love these. 😉
My little Calvin even gobbled these up! (I mean come on though, who wouldn’t).
This recipe is also very versatile with ingredients (which I love). If you prefer strawberry over the raspberry? Go for it. As I was making these Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-ups I just kept thinking about all of the other delicious flavor combos you could make; peanut butter banana, chocolate raspberry, pumpkin cream cheese? The options are endless… get creative!
There are basically 5 steps to my Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-Ups:
- 1. Make your egg/milk french toast mixture.
- 2. Roll out the slices of bread (I removed some of the crust)
- 3. Spread with raspberry jam and cream cheese, roll up tightly.
- 4. Quickly dip in the egg mixture, cook in pan with butter.
- 5. Roll in cinnamon sugar … ENJOY!
These are so good and rich as is the thought of adding syrup didn’t even cross my mind. (And I love syrup)
I love that these roll-ups look like I spent hours creating them, but really it was about 15 minutes! The shimmering cinnamon sugar on the outside paired with the jelly/cream warm inside kind of reminds me of a donut (with not as much fat/sugar of course). I also love that you probably have all of the ingredients on hand to make these any morning…
The kids really enjoyed these too and I love when I can make a simple and yet super exciting and delicious breakfast to get them excited about eating… because lets be honest a lot of the time it’s a challenge to get 2 crazy active boys to eat much at all!

Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-ups
A simply fancy breakfast that you probably have all the ingredients on hand for!
- 8 slices bread I used whole wheat
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup milk I used 2%
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1/4 cup raspberry jam
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp butter
- syrup optional
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside for later.
Roll out each slice of bread with a rolling pin (or anything round will work). I cut off the top rounded part of the crust (optional) – cutting off the crust will make it easier to roll up.
Spread ~1 Tbsp of jam and cream cheese on each slice of bread. Roll up tightly.
When ready to cook. Heat the butter on medium heat in a large skillet.
Quickly dip each roll-up in the egg mixture. It doesn’t need to sit in there long at all just enough to coat.
Cook for ~1 minute on each side until golden brown.
Roll each roll-up in the cinnamon sugar we made earlier. Serve with syrup (optional) mine didn’t need it already sweet enough! Enjoy!!
Serving size is 2 roll-ups.
