Chocolate Banana Croissant French Toast

So many delicious words in one recipe! Its the month of Ramadhan, we are in lockdown, we are fasting, we are stuck at home. I really shouldnt be talking about food but…… I mean if I dont talk about food, what other topic is their?

Am I finding Ramadhan hard- in all honesty No, but everyone craves, I crave evan after I’ve eaten, so if you havent eaten, I dont need to tell you what the cravings are like…..

Dalgona Coffee was a hit, Rose Dalgona hit us one better, everyones competing with each other over french toast… and now I give you the ‘Chocolate Banana Croissant French Toast’…. it sounds like all of the above rolled into one. No?

And here it is:

Is it good? Oh Damn Good. We have it for Sehri, (meal before sunrise) so if you follow me on instagram youll find it under ‘Sehri Diaries’. If you dont follow me.. what are you waiting for? its just here.

You will need:

  • Croissants 3/4
  • Bananas 2 chopped
  • Nutella
  • Milk 2 tablespoon
  • 2 Eggs
  • A Dollop of Butter
  • A Dollop of Ghee
  • Handful of Suger
  • Half a teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • Freshcream – I use the Squirty one
  • Strawberries (if desired)
  • Icecream (if desired)

And heres what to do with it:

Chop up the bananas and caremelise in frying pan on low heat with ghee and suger.

Cut the croissants in half, spread a dollop (I like this word) of nutella inside and add in the caremalised banana (you can add strawberries in this too)

Make your egg and milk mixture, by whisking milk, egg, cinnamon and a little suger

Dip your filled croissant into the mixture and fry on low heat in ‘dollop’ of butter. And once fried, put suger all over

And serve with cream on the side, or evan icecream, and decorate with remainder banana or strawberries.

What a treat for sehri! We love it, Im sure you will too. Try it out and dont forget to send a pic of yours.

Cant wait to see your creations

Stay Safe, Stay Indoors

Nutella Star Pastry

This pandemic has brought out the chefs in all of us…. I hate cooking, but all I want to do is…. Cook…. Because what else can I do? …… And by the way… I’m not too bad!! Really…. I’m not just saying it, the 3 men in my life are living proof…. I mean they are ‘living’- so there’s the proof!

The Nutella Star pastry ain’t exactly a great scientific experiment, but it looks like one, and I can assure you it tastes like one too, it’s heaven for sweet tooth’s like myself (although I really should be taking it easy, especially because all the dentist appointments are canceled at the moment.)

It’s also really quick and easy to make, and the kids will be over the moon, literally it’s chocolate overdose….make it with them, eat with them, stick them In the garden untill the hyperactivity wears off. The weather is on our side people! And just how glorious is the sun at the moment?

So here’s how it’s done:

You will need:

  • A Puff Pastry Block ( I have been advised the one I use has alcohol in it. Do check it before you buy it!)
  • Nutella
  • Greaseproof paper

Is that all? I hear you say…. Yes that’s all folks! That’s all you need to make this tasty treat, and here’s how it’s done:

Cut your pastry block into 4 equal divides

Roll out each divide and cut a circle round each one

Until you will have 4 round pastry circle thingimigigs!

Put the first one on baking sheet on oven tray, and add a full heaped tablespoon of Nutella and spread it round

Put the second round pastry on top and do the same untill all the layers are on…

Once all the layers are on, roll out the pastry whilst still on the tray- try not to let the chocolate out though, it’s just to get it ABIT bigger….

Get a small round cutter and do a indent in the middle on your pastry

Then cut into your pastry up to the indent at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock

Do the same again in between these dents

And one last time in-between the next dents. Remember not to go into the circle

Take the end of each pastry cut out and twist it twice and put it down. You will get the above once all done ( the Boi apparently took a boomerang- of this, yet he didn’t save it 🙄)

And put it in the oven at 170degrees for 15-20 minutes

And here’s the final look. Tada!! Ain’t it beaut? Not just to look at but to eat aswell.

And now I’ll be kicking the kids into the garden and locking them outside whilst I put ear plugs on…. It’s got to be done. We all need ABIT of peace. And I did give them a treat too!

Ah the joys. They are a wonderful bunch when they are far away.

Let me know how you guys get on

Stay indoors, stay safe

Love and Regards

……Oh you do too? Sorry couldn’t hear you, I was getting too excited..

Ok, so when I think of French toast… its breakfast right?

and then Nutella? well thats got to be a dessert, right?

So where do these roll ups fit in? well ….my answer….” Anywhere you damn well want! just eat them!!! ALL!! By yourself! DO NOT SHARE!”. For breakfast, lunch and Dinner, and everything in between aswell!

Thats what I did. Im sorry, you can just salivate on the photos, and im really sorry to my dentist the most, it was one day of pure indulgence, I will behave from today onwards. I promise.

So here is how to make these little indulgences.

Its the most easiest and quickest thing ever…. it took me longer to write this blog up!!

So here goes; You will need:

  • 6 Bread Slices
  • Nutella
  • Strawberries (chopped up)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoon Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1.4 cup Suger

And heres what to do with it All;

  • Remove the crust of the Bread Slices
  • Roll out and flatten Bread with Rolling Pin
  • Layer Bread with Nutella and add few peices of chopped Strawberries on one end
  • And roll up the Bread, (the Nutella will hold the Roll in shape)

  • Add Butter to a frying pan on medium heat
  • Whisk Egge and milk together
  • Dip a roll to the egg mixture, and fry in frying pan
  • Once fried (usually takes 2/3 minutes max) dip into a bowl of mixed suger and cinnamon, covering it completely

And Voila, it is ready to Eat, or Devour as I did

Just how yummy does this look?
