French Toast Roll Ups - Kids Friendly Recipes

I love making and cooking french toast, you can check out my recipe for all kind of french toast here in my blog. I have quite a few kind of it here. Check it here. I make french toast often, both sweet and savoury. French toast are so versatile, you can add anything to it, it will pick the flavours up for you. I always add vanilla in my french toast, but somewhere i heard that cardamom goes pretty well with it. I should try it soon.

This is not your ordinary french toast. This recipe is a kind of  different one, it is a roll up. French toast made into rolls. it taste even more heavenly because it has jam filled inside it. I used my favorite mixed fruit jam for this. But you could probably fill it with peanut butter, nutella or anything you like. I have a dream of filling it with cream cheese and strawberries. These rolls gets its final touch by drenching it in cinnamon sugar. I hope you will love it as much as i did and let me know how it turned out.
