French toast was a breakfast favourite of mine as a kid. Because it was the one thing I could actually cook as a 5-year-old, and because eggy wondrousness. It was pretty basic French toast stuff of course. Just normal white bread dipped into egg whisked with a splash of milk. Naturally I had to have it with that other favourite of pre-schoolers the world over – tomato sauce. And not just any tomato sauce, it had to be All Gold.
Even though All Gold is still the only tomato sauce for me, my taste buds have evolved somewhat over the years. Some might say I’m fussy about food, downright picky even. Which is why I don’t often use superlatives when talking about recipes. So it’s pretty telling that I’d call this Nutella French toast amazing. It’s rich, it’s sweet, and it’s packed with chocolate, cinnamon and orange flavour. Add a cup of strong black coffee and this Nutella French toast is pretty much my ideal lazy weekend breakfast. Wow. There you go, another superlative.
