Gooey and sweet, filled with chocolate-hazelnut flavour, Nutella French Toast warms heart and soul on a cold winter’s morning. So simple, it’s a great recipe to make with the kids!


Units Scale
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • dash of vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter (for cooking)
  • 1 cup fruit (berries, peaches), cut
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Powdered sugar for serving (optional)


  1. Spread a liberal amount of Nutella over 2 slices of bread. Top each with the remaining bread, to make a sandwich and reserve.
  2. In a bowl, combine egg, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and whisk. Then pour into a shallow pie pan. Dredge each sandwich in the egg mixture, soak for about two minutes per side and reserve.
  3. While your Nutella French Toast is soaking, prepare your fruit. Either fresh and macerated with a touch of sugar & a squeeze of lemon, served at room temperature or cooked (as shown above). To cook your fruit start with a small pan; combine sugar and water and allow to come to a boil over medium-high heat and reduce by about a third. Melt butter into simple syrup, once melted add cut fruit and lightly cook for about three minutes over medium heat, the reserve warm.
  4. Heat large skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of butter and swirl to coat. Add your egg-soaked sandwich to the pan in a single layer, taking care not to crowd the pan. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes covered over medium to medium-low heat, until light golden brown. Flip and cook the other side in the same manner. Add more butter as needed.
  5. Transfer to a plate, dust with powdered sugar if desired, and top with fruit.  Serve, immediately.
