Notes

Notes 
  • Be cautious with the oven heat. If your oven gets hotter than the average oven, turn the temperature down a little. Nutella can burn easily.
  • If you need to add more time to the timer but the top is already golden brown, cover with aluminum foil then continue to bake for an extra 5 minutes while monitoring carefully. 
  • To make this recipe vegan substitute the brioche bread for a white/brown loaf, use an egg alternative, and use 2 TBSP cocoa powder instead of Nutella OR use a plant-based Nutella alternative. 
  • Enjoy with a glass of my Vegan Coquito.
  • Put leftovers in the fridge and consume within 3 days. Not suitable for freezing.
