Nutella Stuffed French Toast with Maple Whipped Cream

No time for a story, just enough time for some good eats! I never knew French Toast was so, so incredibly easy! Not to mention delicious! Especially this one, since I am a complete sucker for Nutella. But then with bananas too? Oh wait... and maple whipped cream?!?! I've really gone too far with this one, seriously, seriously, seriously delicious. Did I mention that I was serious about this one? Because I am, deadly serious. No sarcasm here. Nope. Just pure Nutella, melt-in-your-mouth explosions of delighful joy.


Nutella Stuffed French Toast with Fresh Bananas and Maple Whipped Cream
Yields: Enough for four


3 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tbsn. brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tbsn. butter
12 slices of whole wheat bread (or white/ brioche/ challah/ anything will do)
Nutella, amount depends on how much you like 
4 bananas, sliced (optional)
powdered sugar, for topping (optional)

In a medium bowl mix the eggs, milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla until well combined. Spread the Nutella onto 6 sliced of the bread, then place the other bread slices on them to make a Nutella sandwich and cut diagonally. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, drop a tablespoon of butter and wait until melted. Dip the bread into the liquid mixture until coated well on each side (do NOT over soak or else it will become soggy). Drop the sandiwches into the hot pan and cook 4 halves at a time using a tablespoon of butter for each batch. Cook until golden brown, about 3 - 4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and eat immediately. Top with the fresh bananas and whipped cream.

Maple Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Using a mixer, whip the cream until peaks start to form. While on low speed, slowly add the maple syrup and vanilla. Continue beating until peaks become stiff. Enjoy!
