Quick Snack in 15 Minutes - French Toast with Nutella Sauce

Not sure if I should thank or blame my friend for a Costco-sized Nutella jar. It was a present over the holidays, a fattening one. To make better use of it, I simply mixed the Nutella with some milk and turned it into an even more delicious sauce for an even more devilish French toast snack.

Maybe I should blame myself instead, but oh my, this idea was greedy yet so delicious.

French toast with Nutella sauce -

Ingredients (for 2)?

  • 2 thick cut brioche toast slices
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup Nutella
  • 6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Small pinch nutmeg
  • Some whipped cream 


Mix 1 large egg, 6 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and small pinch of nutmeg in a flat-surfaced container -

Prepare a double broiler, slowly heating up the Nutella and whole milk while whisking these ingredients constantly. Use less or more milk depending on the texture, the sauce should be pourable but not too runny -

Dip both sides of the brioche toast slices into the egg mixture. Soak the toast for about 30 seconds each side if using thick cut version. If uncertain, it's better to have a less moist French toast than a very soggy one since the bread might break apart easily. In addition, you can always compensate the dryer toast with extra sauce on top. Take a few practices but should be able to get a hang of it.

Use a non-stick flat surface pan and turn to medium high heat. Transfer the slices over and toast till both sides turned slightly browned. Flipping back and forth a couple times is fine as long as not breaking the toasts.

Transfer each toast onto a serving plate and drizzle some Nutella sauce -

Top with whipped cream and more Nutella sauce if desired -

The whipped cream gets flat soon after since the French toast was still very hot when I took the picture. You can also serve it with some fresh fruits and crushed nuts, but I'll save a fruitier version of French toast recipe next time. As for this, a simple Nutella will do just fine.
