Nutella French toast!


A delicious way to start your day

Like everybody else I wait for the weekend impatiently, to rest, have some time for myself and indulge my tired self with comforting recipes, especially during breakfast my favorite meal of the day.

My favorites during the weekend mornings are pancakes, bread or croissant pudding and french toast. I always like to make variations of these classics so they always feel new.

It´s a cold weekend and what better than a chocolate inspired recipe to warm you up and leave any chocolate lover very satisfied!
In this spirit, I decided to make nutella french toast; can you have a more decadent start of the weekend? The hazelnut chocolate spread we all grew up with, tucked between two layers of soft, tasty and slightly toasted bread, with some extra chocolate on top and red berries, sounds great, right?

To make this recipe for 2 you need:
Few ingredients to delight your morning

  • 200 ml of milk (you can use soy milk or divide the quantity equally between milk and cream)
  • 1 egg
  • Tsp of kahlua (or any other coffee liqueur)
  • Tbp of maple syrup
  • Nutella (you can put as much as you wish on your bread)
  • 4 bread slices (I used cereal bread)
  • Hazelnut pralin√© paste (optional)
  • Some butter for frying
Add as much chocolate spread as you wish

Combine milk, egg, kahlua and maple syrup in a  blender, and blend until well combined (you can use a manual whisk if you wish).
Spread the nutella on one slice and the praliné on the other (if you decided to use it), seal the slices together. Soak the bread on both sides with the milk mixture. Fry both sides, on a medium heat, until golden brown.

Lightly toast the bread with some butter
Sprinkle some powdered sugar over the toast and serve. You can add some extra nutella, toasted hazelnuts and some fruits, especially red berries like raspberries and strawberries if you wish to.

And there you have it. A tasty, nutty, chocolaty and energetic start to your weekend. Enjoy!
Breakfast worth the effort!
