Nutella Strawberry Cream Topping
cups Heavy Cream
tablespoons Powdered Sugar
ounces Cadbury Milk Chocolate
cup Heavy Cream
tablespoon Vanilla Extract
tablespoons Melted Unsalted Butter
cup All Purpose Flour
Van de Kamp French Toast Bread
tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- In the bowl of an electric mixer or in a large bowl with an electric mixer with the whisk attachment on, add the cream and powdered sugar. Beat on low at first so the sugar combines without a storm then gradually go to the high setting and beat until stiff peaks form. Place whipped cream in fridge until ready to use. While cream is whipping I sliced my strawberries and got the Nutella ready and used a vegetable peeler to create chocolate shavings from the chocolate bar.
- In a large bowl whisk the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and melted butter together. Whisk in flour. Place one piece of the bread in the egg batter. Press it down a little then flip the piece of bread over and let it sit for 30 seconds to a minute.
- Put a large skilled on a burner over medium heat. Add a little bit of butter. Place the soaked bread in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. *If Cooking for a crowd I turn my oven on to 200F and place the cooked french toast in a pan until they're all done*
- Place cooked French toast on a plate, spread on a tablespoon or two of Nutella, sprinkle on some strawberries and if you live your life in excess take another piece of French toast spread a little bit of Nutella on that and place that Nutella face down on top of the strawberries on the other piece of French toast. Add a few more strawberries on top a dollop of whipped cream and a few chocolate shavings.
