I'm gonna keep this short and sweet peeps--If you like breakfast and you like french toast, then you're gonna want to try this recipe. If you answered no to any of the above, you probably don't like puppies either. Booooooo.
Check out the video below for a quick rundown of how to make amazing, impress your friends stuffed french toast with a hint of coffee flavor.
You could substitute the coffee with a fruit jam of your choice, BUT the flavor you get here is very reminiscent of coffee flavored ice cream and who doesn't like coffee flavored ice cream? People who hate puppies, that's who.
