Recipe: French Toast

I always make breakfast beyond toast and cereal on a Sunday, even if it’s just scrambled eggs or bagels and smoked salmon. It is our “lazy day” and a great way to start it.

With today being Mother’s Day in the UK, I plan on making a huge stack of French Toast, my mom’s favourite. I know there are lots of versions of French Toast (aka Eggy Bread) out there but I thought I’d share my version anyways.


To make, you will need:

3 eggs
150 ml whole milk
150 ml single cream
1/2 vanilla pod
2 tbsp sugar
8 slices of brioche
Fruit and maple syrup for topping (optional)


1. Beat the eggs and mix in the milk, cream, vanilla and sugar.
2. Soak each slice of brioche for a couple of minutes (turning over so both sides are coated).
3. Melt a knob of butter in a pan and add the brioche, cooking until golden brown on both sides
4. Put on a baking tray in a warm over while you cook the others – this puffs the bread up a bit, which I like, though I imagine you could also keep warm in tin foil.

When they are all done, top with fruit, icing sugar and serve with maple syrup.
