Mix until well combined. Refrigerate until ready.
Cut a loaf of french bread 2 inches thick (you will need 8 pieces).
In a separate bowl, mix all filling ingredients together until well combined…
But not completely smooth.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a large skillet on medium and spray generously with cooking spray.
Dip each piece into the batter on both sides and place in pan.
Cook until golden brown on both sides. Remove and place in baking dish you are going put into the oven. 4 pieces will be for the bottom and 4 pieces for the top.
Divide the filling equally onto 4 of the pieces of bread.
Top with the remaining 4 pieces of bread. Place in preheated oven for 8 minutes.
Remove and serve with syrup.
