Recipe: Cinnamon French Toast with Nutella (or the best thing I’ve ever put in my face)

It started with a tweet.
Last week R tweeted me (it’s how all the modern families are communicating their dining wishes don’t you know?) a picture of this thing she’d found on t’interweb and asked if we could recreate it.
Cinnamon? Nutella? Frying? I was so unbelievably in. You really ought to be too. Look. At. It.

First things first, I went of a quick guilt assuaging run.  I did a couple of miles in my new trainers and stopped off for raspberries on the way back to up the fruit quota.

Guilt firmly out of the picture, if you want to make this go gather these things.

In an ideal world and with a little pre planning we’d have infused our own cinnamon sugar but for the sake of reducing the pan-to-face time to a bare minimum I mixed together about 100g golden caster sugar and a heaped teaspoon of ground cinnamon and it worked just fine.

1) Make the french toast. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and dunk the bread in to coat completely in the eggs. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook your toast on both sides.

2) When it’s gorgeously golden all over, dredge the french toast in your cinnamon sugar, get it good and coated and breathe deeply, it smells glorious.

3) When you’re all sugared up, dollop as much Nutella as you can conceivably eat in the middle and roll up the toast around it. The heat from the toast melts the Nutella, the Nutella oozes, you make involuntary noises. Maybe you drool a little and that’s ok; if you’re making them for the family the first one won’t be yours anyway!!

4) Eat, groan, repeat as many times as you can manage.

I didn’t have time to make all the pictures the right way up or do any fancy schmancy editing so y’know, just go make these and take your own beautiful pictures; they’re really quite photogenic! 

Best breakfast ever?  Yarp! Don’t eat a stack of them and then try to do anything at all afterwards, that just doesn’t work.

  • Oh sweet jesus, I need that in my face right now. Adding raspberries probably counts as one of your five a day, so it’s actually a perfectly healthy dinner choice….! xxx

  • WOW. Just checking, the run is optional, right? Because I want to eat this muchly, but I don’t want to go running. Maybe if I just have one tiny slice… or six. xxx

  • All I have to say is……DRIBBLE!!!


  • Wow I’d never think to make these,but I think I’ve already got the ingredients! Yum! xx

  • I do love French Toast, my MIL makes it perfectly. Darn not having any chocolate spread in the house, I wonder if peanut butter would work as well, i’ll have to try it out and see!

  • Woman, you are trying to kill me with your awesome writing and ridiculous recipes. FEED ME NOW. Particularly as I’m not sure I’ve ever actually had french toast!?
