Yeah, that’s a mouthful. But a delicious mouthful. For years I have been sporadically buying cinnamon-raisin bread at the supermarket, just for making French Toast. I would occasionally stuff the French Toast with cream cheese or something else, but I was distracted by a jar of Nutella. If you haven’t heard of Nutella, it’s a hazelnut and chocolate concoction about the consistency of peanut butter, and it’s just delicious.
On to the making of the French Toast –
Syrup (maple is best, of course)
Preheat a skillet with 1T butter
Beat the egg in a shallow bowl until it’s well beaten. Add the milk and mix well.
Spread Nutella on two pieces of bread, and cover with two more slices, ending up with two Nutella sandwiches on raisin bread. Already a good start.
Dredge the sandwiches in the egg mixture, both sides, and transfer to the skillet.
Cook for about two minutes, until golden brown, then turn and cook the other side to golden brown.
Serve with syrup. More butter optional. A sprinkle of powdered sugar will make it a bit prettier, but doesn’t really do much for the flavor.
