Cinnamon French Toast with Homemade Chocolate Sauce by SeasonWithSpice.com

Valentine’s Day is about love. Love your honey, love your kids, love your breakfast. Whether you make a sweet breakfast together as a family, or go it alone, you’ll be smiling when you smell that cinnamon spiced aroma and taste that rich chocolate sauce and vanilla cream on this all homemade French toast recipe.

Chopped Dark Chocolate for homemade Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Start with a fresh, homemade vanilla whipped cream. Easy to make the night before and kept in the fridge. Then first thing in the morning, break up some pieces of dark chocolate, and simmer with cream and a drizzle of maple syrup for a rich homemade chocolate sauce. Finally, whip up a spiced egg mixture with dashes of sweet cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and soak slices of thick-cut bread until the pan is hot and ready to fry them to a golden brown. 

Top the French toast with vanilla whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and fresh strawberry and banana slices. And enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee or tea.

Cinnamon French Toast with Dark Chocolate Sauce & Vanilla Whipped Cream 
by Season with Spice 


French toast: 
2 eggs & 1/4 cup milk, per three slices of thick-cut bread
Dashes of Season with Spice's Ground Cinnamon and Ground Ginger, and Nutmeg Powder

Chocolate Sauce: 
50g good quality dark chocolate - chopped
1/3 cup milk or half & half
1-2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Vanilla Whipped Cream (see recipe)

1. Make whipped cream first thing in the morning (or the night before).
2. Make the chocolate sauce next. Fill a small pot a quarter high with water, and heat on low. Place the dark chocolate and milk (or half & half) in a small stainless steel bowl, and then place the bowl into the pot. Stir frequently to evenly melt the chocolate. Once it is melted and smooth, add in one tablespoon of milk at a time until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. Finally, add in vanilla and maple syrup. Mix well to combine.
3. For the French toast, whip up the eggs and milk until frothy, then add in the spices and mix well. Add a little vegetable oil to a frying pan and heat on medium fire. As the pan is heating, soak one slice of bread on both sides and transfer to the pan. Cook until golden brown on each side.

Yumm! I could probably use Nutella in place of the dark chocolate sauce, huh? My family loves Nutella AND French toast. Thanks for sharing!

Oh my - I'm dying here! I have everything but the bread, but I was planning on making bread tomorrow. I'll just slice it before I go to bread and then I'll be ready for V-Day morning. Bobby will be in heaven and love me forever! :) Hope you two have a wonderful Valentine's Day and thanks for this recipe!

Absolutely delicious! But I don't think it's for beakfast...To my mind it's too sweet.I'd rather eat it as a dessert. :)

Absolutely great for dessert, but this version has very little sugar. Use dark chocolate (between 60-80%) and sweetened with tiny bit of maple syrup. The vanilla whipped cream is completely sugarless:)

Season with Spice said...

Oh yes, caramelised banana would be a great addition!

Season with Spice said...

You're so cute, MJ! We are pretty sure Bobby already loves you forever. You too have a lovely lovely Valentine's Day! Now we wish we wish could have a loaf of your homemade bread:)
