This Nutella stuffed french toast is the breakfast we never knew we needed
Because everything is better with Nutella.
It's time to take a beloved and classic breakfast treat...and add some chocolate to it.
We came across a recipe for Nutella stuffed churro french toast on Cafe Delites last week - and it sounds way too good to pass up.
To make things even better, it's pretty easy to make - so you'll be enjoying a tasty breakfast in no time flat.
Here's what you need:
- 4 slices of thick bread of choice
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup low fat milk (or almond milk)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon sweetener/sugar of choice
- 1 tablespoon Nutella , divided into 4 teaspoons
And for the coating, you'll need:
- 4 tablespoons cinnamon sugar OR 3 tablespoons sugar mixed with 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon (but adjust these measurements to suit your tastes)
Don't worry, it's not going to be too long until your Nutella stuffed french toast is a nice golden brown and ready to enjoy.
To make the french toast:
Whisk the eggs and the milk together with the cinnamon, vanilla extract and sweetener/sugar in a wide shallow bowl.
Spread 1 teaspoon of the Nutella or Hazelnut spread onto each slice and sandwich them together to make 2 sandwiches.
Soak the sandwiches in the egg wash.
Heat a nonstick pan/skillet with 1 teaspoon butter.
Fry the egg-soaked sandwiches on low - medium heat on both sides until golden.
And if you're feeling like indulging a bit more this weekend, the recipe also includes a how-to on some tasty cinnamon (or sugar) coating.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar (or cinnamon sugar mix) onto a small plate and press the French Toast sandwiches down until coated like a Churro or a sugared donut.
Serve with 1 scoop frozen yoghurt, ice cream, fruit, berries, and/or more nutella!
Drizzle alllll over your Donut French Toasts!!
