Eggy bread, pain perdu or French toast – this classic breakfast dish has plenty of names and is perfect for a weekend treat. We love ours with fresh berries and maple syrup.


  • 2 large Bird Bros eggs
  • 80ml whole milk
  • 40ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 thick slices brioche
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • icing sugar, maple syrup and fresh berries, to serve (optional)


  1. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Lay the brioche slices in a single layer in a shallow dish and pour the egg mixture over them. Allow to soak for 2-3 mins, then carefully turn over and soak for 2 mins more.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the vegetable oil and butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until foaming. Carefully lift 2 slices of the soaked brioche out of the dish and add to the frying pan. Fry for 3 mins on each side, until golden and crisp, then place on a wire rack over a baking tray in a warm oven while you repeat with the remaining slices.

  3. Serve dusted in icing sugar and scattered with fresh berries, if you like. Source: bbcgoodfood.com
