I had Nutella for the FIRST time recently, and now I am on a HOW OFTEN CAN I TRY NUTELLA RECIPES streak. Everything Nutella all the time. This one is definitely a favorite of our’s. You combine buttermilk french toast, Nutella, and top it with strawberries if you’re feeling extra fancy. Joel and I use real maple syrup and powdered sugar which brings the entire dish together. If you like less sugar, it’s good by itself too!
Trader Joe’s Brioche Bread, cut into triangle slices
1/4 cup of buttermilk
1/4 cup of whole milk
1 tablespoon of butter, melted
1/2 tablespoon of white sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Dash of vanilla
Pinch of salt
Pinch of nutmeg
Real maple syrup
Powdered sugar (optional)
Fresh strawberries (optional)
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat
In a medium bowl, whisk your eggs, buttermilk, and milk.
Melt your butter and pour into the egg mix then add the vanilla
Pour in sugars, cinnamon, and salt and whisk everything for about 1 minute or until well-combined.
Take a slice of bread and spread a good amount of Nutella heavy on one side of the bread, then top with another matching slice of bread
Set aside, and repeat with bread slices.
Add a small slice of butter in your skillet.
Dip one of the bread pieces into the liquid mixture until fully coated working quickly so that it doesn’t get to soggy, then place in the skillet.
Heat the bread in skillet on both sides until golden brown.
Carefully remove from skillet and repeat with remaining bread slices.
Serve warm with strawberries, powdered sugar, and maple syrup. Note* I use a sifter to sift a tiny bit of powdered sugar onto the bread slices for an aesthetic look.
Serving size: My husband eats 2 slices of Nutella French Toast. I eat 1. The batter will go a long way and we use it over several days.
