HeyEater Hints & Tips

Don’t worry if you can’t find fresh cinnamon! Any type of ground cinnamon will do!

The recipe says you should remove the crusts from each slice but that’s totally up to you! Depending on how you like your French toast, I prefer them with the crusts left on! It works both ways.

To serve more people, I am pretty sure you will have enough mixture left over so just cut a few more slices of bread and coat them as stated above.

2 Medium eggs

150ml semi-skimmed milk

A generous pinch or freshly grated ground cinnamon

4 slices of white bread with each slice cut into two or four (cut into four for children so they are finger sized), crusts removed from each slice

50g butter

vegetable oil for frying

1tbsp of golden caster sugar

A handful or strawberries and blueberries (optional)


1. Put the eggs, milk and cinnamon into a shallow dish and beat together.

2. Dip the pieces of bread into the mixture, coating them well.

3. Heat half of the butter with 1tbsp of oil in a heavy-based frying pan. When butter is foaming fry the egg-coated bread pieces in batches, until golden brown on both sides, adding more butter and oil as needed.  Top with fruit and sprinkle with sugar to serve.
