The ultimate decadence!

2-minutes and 7-ingredients is all that it takes for this decadent-dessert-french toast cooked in a microwave.

Happy Friday folks!

Hope you’ll have fun or laid back plans for this evening. Personally, I’m more of a stay-at-home with Netflix kinda gal (of course with a glass of wine, duh…). Going out on a Friday night is more of a chore for me. Which category do you fall in?

Guess what I’m making for dessert tonight? Something that screams chocolate, looks and tastes indulgent and that requires almost-no-effort on a relaxing Friday night. After all, who wants to slave in the kitchen after a long week?


My baby boy turned 11 years old last week-Happy Birthday Baby! Being a huge foodie, he always comes up with a menu for his big day. This year, he wanted banana Nutella french toast for breakfast. French toast with all the hustle and bustle of a weekday morning? However, I cannot disappoint him, can I? Especially on his birthday? (Or any other day for that matter). Microwave french toast came to the rescue. This is was not a healthy breakfast that I usually emphasize on, but it was his birthday afterall. Both kids devoured this and got a fun start to the day:)

  1. your son came up with this idea?! i think he’s on the right track because this sounds amazing! and i’m definitely more of a stay in on friday night person; i did go out last night, but only to bake madeleines with a friend. it was quite a crazy night (;

    1. If you wanna take the chocolate route – then try adding some cocoa powder + sugar along with egg and milk.
      If you wanna take a plain route – then try adding some sugar + a splash of vanilla extract along with egg and milk.
      Hope it helps, let me how it goes. Thanks
