Nutella Stuffed French Toast

by Heather on December 6, 2010

Absolutely beautiful Lauren is on Faces of Beauty today!


Alright, no more of this Little Miss Innocent act.  I know exactly what I’m doing here.  I know that this could cause a Nutella crisis the likes of which puts the pumpkin shortage to shame.


I know this, and I don’t care.  I have to tell the world…


I have to shout it from the rooftops!!!



I don’t pretend to think that I’m the one who came up with this idea, although I didn’t consult any other recipes to make it.  I don’t recall seeing it on anyone else’s blog.

I like to think that by posting it I’ll be responsible for introducing world peace via breakfast.

Nobel Peace Prize here I come!

The best part of all is that the ingredient list is tiny, the flavor is huge, and the repercussions are monstrous.  Hello, world peace is a big deal.

Just think about it.


  • 4 slices Texas Toast (get the good stuff, you’ll thank me later)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/8 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 Tbsp Nutella
  • maple syrup

Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium low heat.  In a bowl whisk together the eggs, cream, and powdered sugar.  Take 2 slices of the Texas Toast and spread 1 Tbsp of Nutella on each one.  Sandwich together and dip both sides in the custard mixture.  Grill on each side until brown, about 3-4 minutes.  Remove from heat and serve immediately with maple syrup (although, as Nate said, if you wanted to ruin it by serving with fruit you could totally do that too).

So yes, world peace is in your hands…if we all had our mouths stuffed with this then there’s no way anyone could be unhappy!

Ok, Ok. I won’t resist anymore. I’m adding Nutella to my shopping list even though I don’t want to. I know the consequences. I’ll eat the whole jar in a day (probably on French toast since that looks so good). I will blame my sugar rush on you. ;)


2 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg December 6, 2010

Oh my GOSH, that looks amazing. I bet jam would be a yummy topping too! Or a sprinkle of powdered sugar– yum!


3 Joslyn @ missfitbliss December 6, 2010

I love the backdrop – cool pattern. Of course, it’s not half the eye candy that the dish provides. I think I’d eat just about anything that had Nutella on it.


4 Liz @ Blog is the New Black December 6, 2010

Would you believe I’ve NEVER had nutella? Must try.


5 Jessica @ How Sweet December 6, 2010

This may make me a Nutella convert.


6 Salah December 6, 2010

I don’t know how you still have nutella laying around the house. Both jars would have been long gone by now here at my apt….and there’s only one of me and both you and nate. This looks so bomb!


7 Krystina (Basil & Wine) December 6, 2010


I haven’t bought nutella in so long. This needs to change.


8 Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic December 6, 2010

Yummm. Nutella CAN faciliate world peace because it is so awesome and anyone who eats it becomes very, very happy…


9 Alina @ Duty Free Foodie December 6, 2010

I want to lick my screen right now.


10 KeepItSweet December 6, 2010

reading this at work just doesn’t seem fair… i need this in my life now!


11 Miss Anthropist December 6, 2010

Wow…just WOW!


12 Alyson @ Nourished Fitness December 6, 2010

Oh my goodness.. decadence at it’s best.. love it! In fact, I think that looks like an ideal holiday brunch ;-)


13 Kristi December 6, 2010

Oh my goodness… that looks so good! I’m going to BJ’s tonight and am going to buy a huge jar of nutella!


14 Amy @ Second City Randomness December 6, 2010

Can you believe I’ve never made french toast? It weirded me out for the longest time… but now I think I’m just lazy or prefer to do pancakes.


15 *BIOCHEMISTA* December 6, 2010

I love nutella and french toast…Why haven’t I tired this????! I usually make banana stuffed french toast..but this sounds fantastic.

Just wanted to say how amazing I think you are for creating the faces of beauty campaign. You are incredible and very inspiring.


16 Katie @ Health for the Whole Self December 6, 2010

I’m officially joining the effort for world peace via breakfast. ;)


17 lindsay December 6, 2010

you know the way to my heart….NUTELLA! :)


18 Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun December 6, 2010

I’m glad I didn’t see this yesterday morning. I was craving french toast something serious but didn’t have time before church. Now I don’t have to regret not making it because I can make it one day soon…with Nutella. :D

And I’m so glad you’re feeling better!


19 Maggie December 6, 2010

Oh my goodness this looks amazing. I only tried Nutella for the first time a couple months ago…and proceeded to eat the whole jar over a 3 day period.


20 Mariko December 6, 2010

The fact that Nutella hasn’t already caused world peace is amazing. :)


21 Natalia - a side of simple December 6, 2010

In the words of Rachel Zoe…



22 Rachel @ The Avid Appetite December 6, 2010

Nutella makes everything alright. I’m working on a Nutella sandwich cookie for my site later this week – I cannot wait to sample as I ‘research’. :)


23 marla {family fresh cooking} December 6, 2010

I really do believe you are right that this Stuffed Nutella French Toast will rule the world. I could easily let it rule mine :) xo


24 chelsie December 6, 2010

I refuse to buy Nutella because I am convinced I would eat the entire jar in just one sitting. This post is making those pretty little jars even harder to resist.


25 Becca D. December 6, 2010

It’s very hard for me to write this comment because of the drool that has landed on my keyboard….

Ahhh, this brings me back to when I lived in Greece and every morning my breakfast consisted of toast with nutella and jam….I’m preeeety sure my fingers were stained brown from the constant dipping in the jar. :)


26 LiveForTheRun December 6, 2010

Things I want to put my face in.

Cannot get enough of Nutella, this is making me hungry!


27 Alex @ IEatAsphalt December 6, 2010

This is just dangerous. As if I needed a way to make Nutella even more enjoyable.


28 lifeundeveloped December 6, 2010

I’m drooling. What did we ever do before Nutella??!


29 Vicky (eat live spin) December 6, 2010

That looks simply amazing!


30 Alicia December 6, 2010

I can’t believe I haven’t thought of this! What a dream — I love your photos!


31 Caroline December 6, 2010

I’ve lurked your site for a long time and I finally had to come out of the woodwork. After spending the summer travelling, I came up a few pounds heavier, mostly because I managed to consume 4 jars of Nutella on my own… since I’ve been back home I’ve avoided it because I have zero self control, but this has changed my mind!! Good work Heather!


32 Kirbie December 6, 2010

Wow, I took a look at your picture on tastespotting and wondered if it was nutella! Love using nutella in things. I haven’t yet made nutella stuffed french toast, but now I must!


33 a taste of health with balance December 6, 2010

this looks a-mazing.


34 Nicole December 6, 2010

I have never tried Nutella… Maybe I should, as that French Toast looks amazing…


35 Tabitha (From Single to Married) December 7, 2010

wow – those look amazing! I have to say, you’ve got me curious about Nutella (I’ve never tried it before). And I know what you mean about the pumpkin shortage. I’m already rationing my pumpkin butter supply until it returns next year!


36 Heather C December 7, 2010

“Hello, world peace is a big deal. ” HA, yes it is! And so is combining two Delicious things as you have…I might have to throw Peanut butter into that mix. You know, just to put us in a food coma for an extra hour… ;)


37 Maria December 7, 2010

My kind of weekend breakfast:)


38 Toik April 25, 2011

I’m intentionally going out to get a hangover tomorrow night just so I can make this as a hangover cure.


39 5wordmoviereviews May 1, 2011

Genius. Genius, genius, genius, genius, genius. You’re my hero.


40 bojana May 10, 2011

41 Chloe Joie October 17, 2011

OMG, my next experiment :)


42 sandra January 12, 2012

Loves fab! Although I will have to try this gluten free I am sure I can reproduce this to be be safe for me and other celiacs. Also check out for her homemade (dairy free but not taste free) nutella. You will never buy it again as it is so easy to make.


43 Heather January 14, 2012

wow, sounds amazing! i’ll have to bookmark that recipe :)


44 Patti Pins This January 18, 2012

I have not had Nuttrella before but hear about it all the time. i think its time to make this. so it chocolate peaut butter???


45 Heather January 19, 2012

it’s an amazing chocolate hazelnut spread…so sort of like peanut butter, but sweeter and better!


46 Kate February 18, 2012

I can’t usually keep Nutella in the house – it goes way to fast! This recipe gives me a great excuse to buy some. ;)


47 pat March 27, 2012

48 Heather June 26, 2012

I made this with nutella for my husband and peanut butter for me. Yum!!


49 Cynthia August 1, 2012

Talk about that lick-ability factor! I am a huge fan of Nutella. I will give this a try and link to it on our site if that’s okay? I am thinking of adding sliced bananas too ☺♡ Cheers! Cyn


50 Heather August 1, 2012

hey cynthia! yes, that’s fine, but i appreciate you asking :) and bananas would probably be delicious!


51 TheJack October 19, 2013

Oh come on, you put Nutella on anything it’s going to be amazing :) I’m definitely trying this though.
