I saw a recipe in House Beautiful magazine sharing a Nutella-stuffed french toast recipe. Could anything be more fantastic? The preparation is easy, but it is also very impressive to guests.
This is my version. I hope you enjoy!
Nutella Stuffed French Toast
6 cups very warm water
1/4 cup yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil (melted coconut or canola)
1/2 cup honey
2 heaping tablespoons of salt
7 cups fresh-ground wheat flour
8 cups all-purpose, unbleached white flour
In a Bosch mixer, add water, yeast, and sugar. Stir a few times with the paddle. Let mixture sit until yeast is frothy. Add rest of ingredients. Beat on high 10 minutes, then let raise one hour in a separate, greased bowl. Remember to cover while raising. Separate into 5-6 balls of dough. Roll out and place in greased bread pans. Cover again with a towel and let the dough raise until it is peaking over the top. Bake in a preheated, 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
French Toast Prep:
1 loaf bread, sliced thin
1 cup milk
Dash of cinnamon
1 Tablespoon flour
Whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, and flour together in a large bowl. Set aside. Grab the bread slices and lay them out with sides matching like you are making sandwiches. On one side, slather some Nutella. Put the other side on top, then get a large cup. Press onto the bread so it cuts off the crust and seals the edges. Dip the sandwiches into the egg mixture. Cook on a griddle until each side is golden brown. Top with your favorite toppings: my family chose fresh strawberries and powdered sugar.
