We cook very healthy most of the time, and I lighten everything I possibly can. Tonight's recipe just could not be lightened, and I am OK with that. It was so incredibly delicious that its utter lack of nutritional value can be overlooked. I can't say this is a make-again specifically for that reason, but this is excellent and I highly recommend it.
It originally came from an article in the now-defunct Jane magazine about how to turn your one-night-stand into something more permanent. Apparently by serving up this delicious french toast the morning after, your partner would be so impressed that he or she would want to continue dating you forever and ever, probably just for the sex and french toast.
If you don't know what Nutella is, it's a chocolate-hazelnut spread that has the consistency of peanut butter and is one of the world's most delicious condiments. It's usually by the peanut butter and marshmallow Fluff in grocery stores.
Finger-Licking Good French Toast
Adapted from Jane magazine
¼ cup milk
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
1-2 Tbsp butter
4 slices of bread (we used French bread)
Whisk the egg, milk, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla together in a bowl. Heat a pat of butter in a frying pan until it starts to sizzle. Dip both sides of bread into the batter and toss into pan. Cook bread for two to three minutes on each side before removing it. Spread Nutella on bread. Sprinkle some powered sugar on top if you have time.
