  • Ingredients

    For the French Toast

    • 2 large eggs
    • 80ml whole milk
    • 50ml double cream
    • 1tsp vanilla extract
    • ½tsp cinnamon
    • 4 thick slices of brioche (or another bread of your choice)
    • 2tbsps vegetable oil
    • 2tbsps butter

     To Decorate

    • Icing sugar
    • Your choice of toppings
  • 1. Add the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon to a large bowl and whisk until smooth.

    2. Set the mixture aside to rest while you cut four thick slices of brioche and place them into a large shallow dish.

    3. Pour over the creamy mixture and leave to soak for three minutes, before turning the bread and soaking for another three minutes.

    4. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, before adding half of the oil and half of the butter.

    5. Once the butter and oil start to foam, add two of the brioche slices and fry for around 2-3 minutes until nicely browned on one side.

    6. Use a fish slice or spatula to turn the bread slices and fry for another 2-3 minutes.

    7. Transfer your French toast onto the serving plate and top with a selection of your favourite toppings, while you cook the other two slices.

    8. Finally, dust the toast with a little icing sugar and serve while still warm.
