Sweet French Toast

Sweet French Toast
Recipe by
Emma Morris

Our version of French Toast is super easy, and a satisfying way to use up that last slice of slightly stale bread.  We've drizzled ours with a warm, home made sticky compote.

 It's perfect for breakfast, brunch or supper - and the kids will love it too!

Whisk the eggs with the milk and spices (I used cinnamon & nutmeg) in a shallow bowl.

Cut your bread in half diagonally, dip it into the egg mix and coat thoroughly (if I have space in the bowl I pop it all in and leave to soak for a few minutes).

Heat butter or oil (I used coconut oil) in a large frying pan.  Add your eggy bread to the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes over a medium heat until golden before turning over and cooking for another 2-3 minutes.

Pop your golden french toast onto a plate to keep warm whilst you make the topping.

In the same pan, add a handful of berries and a teaspoon on honey.  Warm through on a medium heat until the natural fruit juices and honey combine to create a glossy compote.

Drizzle your compote over your french toast and serve.  If you're feeling fancy and have any nuts or granola in the cupboard a sprinkling of this will do just nicely too!
