Easy Delicious Nutella French Toast Recipe

nutella french toast

This Nutella French toast recipe is not your average breakfast. It’s for those weekend mornings when you want to celebrate or create a special breakfast that feels outside the norm. It’s a breakfast to make as a family and indulge in its richness. Joel and I have been eating Nutella french toast since we were first married. It’s both nostalgic and delicious. I don’t eat Nutella on its own or in anything else EXCEPT this French toast and the Amazon Nutella calzones that we make at home as a dessert pizza.

This Nutella French toast recipe is delicious, rich, and perfect for a celebration breakfast.

How to Make This Special French Toast Recipe

This recipe is the same as my french toast recipe, with only the added Nutella as an addition. We have tried substituting the Nutella for almond butter for friends with hazelnut allergies, but it not is the same, unfortunately. This special breakfast is specific to using Nutella.

Easy Nutella French Toast recipe that requires one bowl and can easily be doubled if needed.


  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup choice of milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 Loaf Brioche
  • Nutella Spread
  • European butter for pan
  • Pure Maple Syrup Topping (optional)
  • Berries for topping (optional)


  1. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat with 1 tablespoon of butter. You will want your pan to heat slowly, otherwise, the french toast will brown on the outside too quickly while the inside is still soggy.
  2. Add your eggs to a bowl, whisk, then add your milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Cut your bread slices into triangles down the middle and fill one side with your desired amount of Nutella. I do about 1.5 tablespoons per. Top the other half of the bread to make a triangle sandwich.
  4. Once your pan is hot, but not smoking, dredge one slice of your bread at a time in the egg mix on both sides. You will want to work quickly and only let the bread soak for a second. If you leave it to soak too long it will get soggy and fall apart.
  5. Place your bread in the pan, adding a little more butter if needed, and brown your toast for 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Your slices should turn golden brown pretty quickly. If they are not turning brown quickly enough, turn your heat up slightly. If they are browning too fast, your pan is too hot.
  7. Repeat the steps to coat your slices and place them in the pan until you have your desired amount per serving.


If cooking for two, you might have leftover egg mix depending on how many slices that you cook. You can place the egg mix in the fridge, then whisk it to combine ingredients before cooking. I recommend using it by the next day.
