To make a good french toast, you fundamentally need three things; Eggs, Milk & Brioche. But to make an excellent, mind-boggling one, you need the addition of Nutella. Those are just the rules of the universe. This is my easy Nutella French Toast Recipe.
1 Cup Milk
2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
2-3 Tsp. Castor Sugar
Brioche Bread (Sliced)
Maple Syrup (Optional)
Berries of your choice
Fresh whipped cream
Start by adding milk and eggs in a bowl. Whisk them together. Add vanilla and castor sugar, whisk further. Take a slice of brioche bread and add a good smear of Nutella. Take another slice to sandwich with the first one. Soak in the eggs/milk custard for 30 seconds. Heat a pan with a shot of butter. Add the french toast and cook until all sides caramelise.
Now for plating, stack up the french toast with some berries. Add maple syrup and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Dust with icing sugar and Ta-Da!
Pantry Cafe is an experience to cherish. I’m a big fan of the show F.R.I.E.N.D.S and exploring dainty, personalised and rustic cafes to enjoy with my near and dear ones never goes off my bucket list.
This was just that. With unique jars of foodie bits adorning the place, to the lovely staff who was very elaborate and suggestive of the best bites, me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Here’s what we ordered:
Buffallo Mozzarella salad (New Menu Taster)
Stuffed Eggplants (New Menu Taster)
Thai Chicken Curry
Salted Caramel Apple and Date crumble
Banofee in a jar
The highlight of the evening were the stuffed eggplant with quinoa and tomatoes and basil, topped with delicious mozzarella and parmesan. This is the more sophisticated version of Parmegianna already on the menu. Both these dishes have similar layers of flavour, however Parmegianna is more home made comfort with heaps of cheese (which I appreciate for special occasions! )
The salad was lovely, especially the Buffallo Mozzarella one as it was paired with a rare sweetened fruit and arugula(i’m sorry I don’t know the name of the fruit, neither was it in the menu). Just the softest mozzarella that could ever be.
The Thai Green Curry was one of the spiciest I’ve ever tried, which for the Indian in me works out beautifully. My beautiful friend shared all of this delicious food with me and hopefully had a great time.
Time for dessert: off the three decadent sweets we ordered – Tiramisu was the winner. The others were not very special or what we hoped for.
Special mention goes to Rola Daher (that beautiful friend I talked about) for amazing company and taking some of the photos you’ll will see.
All in all i’d rate Pantry Cafe 8/10. I think if a few of the new menu tasters were finally included in the menu, this place will get hotter by the minute.
P.S. if you are a chai latte lover DO TRY FROM HERE ! The color is suspicious, the taste, not at all.
Do visit pantry cafe and share your experiences with me. I’d love to know if you try anything we did!
