Banana Nutella Stuffed French Toast – two pieces of cinnamon raisin bread sandwiched together with cream cheese, Nutella and bananas inside then dipped in egg batter and grilled to perfection. Drizzle with maple syrup and you’ve got a dish people will not be able to resist!
I don’t think I really have anything to say…
except that this stuffed French toast was…
It tasted pretty darn good, too.
Me thinks you should try it. But not just try it, really, REALLY sink your teeth into it and get down and dirty with it.
Just let every single sweet, rich, yummy, gooey morsel just caress the inside of your mouth and take you to French toast heaven.
You won’t be sorry.
So much flavor and so little time….
I’m going to do things a little differently here now that we’ve got a bit more organization here on the blogaroo.
Instead of me giving you the recipe and the ingredients and then spreading the directions out among the pictures, I’ll separate the pictures of the steps while still describing the process, but keep the recipe and directions altogether at the end so that it’s easier to print for you all.
Did I just repeat myself?
Well, I confused the heck out of me!
Banana Nutella Stuffed French Toast – serves 4-6
In a small bowl, whisk together flour and heavy cream.
In a medium bowl, combine eggs and vanilla.
Then whisk the flour/cream mixture into the eggs.
Place your pieces of bread on a clean work surface so you can spread all of that yummy Nutella and cream cheese goodness on to them. Make if so one side of the sandwich will have a slice spread with Nutella and the other with cream cheese.
Place the banana slices on one side. You pick ~ on the cream cheese slice or the Nutella.
Then put those puppies together.
Take one sandwich and place it into the egg batter holding to a count of three. 1…2…3
then gently turn the sandwich over so you don’t lose your ‘nanas and coat the other side of the sandwich to a count of three. 1…2…3.
Spread some butter around on the griddle allowing it to melt and sizzle.
hee hee I like how that sounded. Had a kind of beat to it.
Place banana sandwiches on preheated and buttered griddle.
Cook on each side for about 3-5 minutes until golden and cooked through. The Nutella and cream cheese should be all warm and melty like.
Eat and enjoy to your heart’s content.
Here’s the recipe…
1 teaspoon Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup flour (helps to brown, but not burn the bread)
16 slices cinnamon raisin bread
4 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
4 bananas, slice thin
butter for griddle
In a medium bowl, or better yet, a baking dish because it’s deep and shallow enough, whisk together the eggs and Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract.
In a small bowl, combine flour and heavy cream. *I found it easier to mix these two together and then add it to the eggs. That way the flour doesn’t clump.
Whisk the cream mixture into the eggs.
Heat a griddle using medium to medium-high heat.
Prepare the bread by spreading some Nutella on 8 of the slices.
On the other 8 slices, divide the cream cheese evenly between them and spread.
Place banana slices on to either the cream cheese or Nutella side of the bread. Cover with the slice you didn’t choose, making sure there is a cream cheese and Nutella slice for each sandwich, and gently press together.
Add some butter to the griddle and spread it so that the surface area is covered.
Take one sandwich and dip it in the egg batter to a count of three. Gently turn it over and dip for another three seconds. Allow excess to drip off and place on to the preheated and prepared griddle.
Cook for three to five minutes on one side, making sure it is golden brown before carefully flipping.
Cook on the other side for an additional three to five minutes.
French toast will be done when golden on both sides, with cream cheese and Nutella warm and melting in the middle.
Oh my gosh darn goodness was this one of the most yummy things I’ve ever made or WHAT?!?!
And I don’t really even like bananas with chocolate. I just like to eat them plain but I would most definitely eat this again!
And even again!
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Banana Nutella Stuffed French Toast earned 4 rolling pins.
Of course, it was THAT good.
But, then again doesn’t Nutella make almost everything better anyway?
I give you BIG baking hugs and muffins!!
If you liked this French Toast, you might very well enjoy…
