While we are all stuck inside our homes, thanks to the lock-down, and unable to enjoy a nice breakfast at our favorite cafe, this is something we can do to cheer ourselves up. Making this is so easy that any inexperienced beginner can make it easily in no time. All you need is a handful of ingredients you will easily find in your kitchen (Nutella being the possible exception).

Nutella Substitute

So the first time I made this, years back, I did not have Nutella at home. But I did have a chocolate bar and some fresh cream in my refrigerator. So what you can do is just add 5-6 pieces of chocolate and 3 tbsp of cream to a bowl. Heat this in a microwave for 1-2 minutes taking the bowl out and stirring every 10-15 seconds. You can stop heating once the chocolate completely melts and you are able to mix it well to a smooth ganache.

Nutella French Toast is a simple breakfast dessert or brunch recipe with banana and Nutella inside topped with cinnamon sugar and strawberries.


  • Bread (brown/white) – 4 slices

  • Nutella- see I told you, you will always have it available

  • Egg – 1

  • Milk – 3-4 Tbsp

  • Sugar – 2 Tbsp

  • Cinnamon – 1 stick

  • Strawberries for garnish

  • Butter


  • Spread Nutella over the bread slices. I prefer using brown bread. I believe this would taste best. But if you have regular white bread, go ahead with that.
  • In a bowl, beat egg and milk together using a fork. Milk gives it a creamier texture.
  • Dip the bread sandwich with Nutella in it and coat well on both sides.
  • Heat butter in a pan and toast the sandwich in the butter. Make sure you use butter itself. This enhances the flavor and can never be matched by any other oil.
  • Once both sides are toasted and turns slightly brown, remove from heat and top with cinnamon sugar and strawberry.*
  • Enjoy – which you will!

  • To prepare cinnamon sugar, grind a stick of cinnamon with sugar to a fine powder. You can store this and later.
