Basic French Toast 

Serves 2 Total Time 15 Min 


½ cup milk
4 eggs, whisked 
1 tsp vanilla essence 
4 slices regular white bread  
oil or butter, for frying  

Chef’s Tip
Ciabatta, sourdough, Ouma bread, rye and kitka all make great alternatives to regular sliced white bread.  



  1. Whisk milk, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl until combined. 
  2. Dip bread into egg mixture and allow to soak for about 30 seconds. 
  3. Heat oil or butter in a large pan and fry French toast in batches for 3-4 minutes per side until golden. 
  4. Drain on paper towel and serve with toppings of your choice. 


1. Sugar And Spice 

Combine ¼  cup sugar with 2 tsp ground cinnamon and sprinkle over French toast. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup just before serving.  

2. The OTT Toastie 

Fry one side of each of the two slices of French toast until golden. Place slices, fried-side up, onto a chopping board. Cover one slice with chopped ham, a sprinkle of herbs and grated cheddar or mozzarella. Sandwich with remaining slice and return to pan. Cook until golden and the cheese has melted.   


3. Apple Crumble

Lather Caramel Treat onto French toast, top with slices of apple and sprinkle with chopped pistachios or almonds.  


4. Berry Delicious

Whisk together ½ cup mascarpone or cream cheese, 3 Tbsp icing sugar and ½  tsp vanilla essence until smooth. Dollop onto French toast and top with fresh berries and mint sprigs.  


5. Breakfast Of Champion

Top French toast with crispy bacon and soft-poached eggs, sprinkle with basil, and drizzle with honey.  


6. The Chocolate 

Cut a slit into the side of two thick slices of bread and fill with 2-3 tsp chocolate spread. Dip bread into egg mixture and fry until golden. Serve with a drizzle of honey or dusting of icing sugar. 


Please note, kids can dip bread and get creative with toppings – but leave the frying to the adults.
