French toast

Let's make French toast

Prep time
5 minutes
Cooking time
10 minutes

4 slices of bread

1 egg

60ml milk 

1 tsp oil

1 tsp cinnamon

160g fresh, frozen or tinned (in juice) fruit such as berries or banana 

2-4 tablespoons of natural yoghurt (optional)

Large bowl

Large frying pan

Whisk / fork 


French toast

In a large bowl whisk together the egg and milk until they are well combined

Pre-heat a large frying pan over medium heat, if the pan is non-stick you will not need oil, if it is not, you may want to add 1 tsp oil.

Take a slice of bread and dip into the egg mixture until it is coated on both sides and then place in the pan.

Repeat for all slices and cook for around 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown.

We recommend serving with fruit and some natural yoghurt.

Serving suggestions

French toast can also be served savoury with some cheese and tomato.


Top tips
  • If your bread is stuck to the pan, often this means it needs a little longer to cook and crisp up
  • Frozen berries make for great stewed fruit option alongside French toast, pancakes, yoghurt and more. A couple of minutes in the microwave leaves the berries stewed and in a lovely sauce with no added sugar.
