Are you the girl whose kitchen is notoriously clean…because you literally never cook? Maybe you flunked Home Ec while simultaneously almost setting your high school on fire, but that doesn’t mean you’re sentenced to a life where the Chinese takeout place knows your order by heart. These recipes are so easy that anyone can make them and fool everyone into thinking they’re a chef.
It’s safe to say that I am completely obsessed with everything sweet. What can I say? It’s my weakness. This week’s recipe is a fun twist on the traditional French toast recipe we all know and love: French toast roll ups! This is kind of recipe that you can definitely make your own. It’s centered around French toast with all your favorite fillings from peanut butter to cream cheese. Sure, it seems kinds of strange ingredient to pair with French toast, but I guarantee that it’s really good. This recipe is great because it should take you no more than 20 minutes to make in your kitchen. It’s even small enough to take on the road with you if you’re ever in a rush in the morning on your way to class or work. After you finish it off with sweet maple syrup, you’ll be in heaven!
8 slices white sandwich bread (the soft, fluffy type)
Peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese, dulce de leche, or nutella
3 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
Butter, for greasing the pan
Maple syrup, for serving
Trim the crust from the bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.
Place about a teaspoon or 2 of your chosen filling an inch from one end of the bread spread out in a strip. Roll the bread up and repeat until they’re all filled.
In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.
In a separate bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon.
In a skillet set over medium heat melt a tablespoon of butter.
Add the rolls to the egg turning to coat on all sides then place them in the pan seam side down. Cook in batches until golden brown, turning them to cook and brown on all sides. Add butter to the pan as needed.
Add the hot rolls from the pan to the cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered in sugar.
Serve with maple syrup for dunking.
