Yes. Cappuccino French Toasts. Aka Milky Coffee soaked French Toasts stuffed with Melted Chocolate; topped with a Coffee Cream and dusted with Chocolate Dusting Powder!


French Toast:

  • 8 thick slices of bread , halved
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup low fat/skim milk (or almond milk)
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee (dry powder)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or natural sweetener of choice
  • 45 g | 1 1/2oz (about 1/3 cup) milk or dark chocolate (chips, melts or squares)

Coffee Cream:

  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) light thickened/whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon icing/confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee (dry powder)


  • Chocolate Dusting Powder


French Toasts:

  • Whisk together the coffee, sugar and milk in a jug. Add the eggs and whisk again until well combined. Pour the mixture into a 9×13-inch shallow dish. Add 8 bread halves into the egg wash; divide the chocolate amongst the bread pieces and top each piece with remaining bread to make 8 sandwich halves. Leave to soak for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and soak for a further 5 minutes.
  • Preheat a large nonstick pan, skillet or griddle with a light coating of butter. When hot, cook the french toast in batches until browned on both sides, cooked through and chocolate has melted in the centre.
  • Meanwhile, make your coffee cream:

Coffee Cream:

  • Combine the cream, coffee and sugar in a medium sized bowl; beat on medium – high speed until cream begins to thicken. (Continue beating to make a whipped cream, or leave as a thinner cream to suit your tastes).
  • To serve, drizzle french toasts with coffee cream; top with a scoop of ice cream (optional), and sprinkle with chocolate dusting powder.
