Stuffed Agege Bread French Toast
Written By: Bethany
From the name, "Stuffed Agege Bread French Toast" sounds like a mouthful, but I promise you it is a delicious mouthful. Some years ago, on the blog, there was the first recipe for Agege Bread French Toast. Today's recipe takes it further with creamy and milky custard stuffing.
For anyone that doesn't know what Agege Bread is; it is a sweet bread that tastes like perfection. It is one of the most popular bread types enjoyed by Nigerians. On the other hand, custard is another staple for Nigerian breakfasts, and this recipe is just the best of both worlds.
