4 strawberries

2 or 3 eggs

  2.  At one of the short sides on the bread spread a good amount of Nutella. Be careful not to put too much on or it might not roll up.
  3. Wash, cut, and layer on the strawberries or your choice fruit on top of the nutella half. Make sure to cut up the fruit relatively small so that it’s easier to roll.  Once the Nutella and fruit are placed on the edge, roll till the end of the bread.GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA
  4. Whisk two or three eggs in a medium bowl set aside.
  5. Combine the cinnamon and sugar on a flat plate.

7.  Take the rolls and cook them in a greased pan on the stove.  It doesn’t take to                            long to cook these, but do make sure the egg is cooked through.


8. Once cooked top with either syrup or powdered sugar and eat.
