Cinnamon French toast with berries

  • Prep: 10m
  • Cook: 15m
  • Serves: 2

This organic French toast breakfast is great for a mid-week treat or special occasions. Just a few ingredients needed and only takes around 20 minutes to rustle up.


  1. Mix the eggs, milk, sugar and seasonings in a large bowl untill thoroughly combined (the spices will rise to the top of the mix when resting so don’t worry about this too much).
  2. Heat a teaspoon of coconut oil into a large frying pan over a medium heat (if your heat is too high then you will cook the outside of the French toast but the inside of the bread will still have areas of raw egg mix, which nobody wants!).
  3. Meanwhile, place a slice of bread into your egg mix and leave to soak on each side for around 3 minutes each.
  4. Depending on how large your frying pan is you can cook 1 or 2 slices at one time frying on each side untill lightly golden. For a little extra sweetness and browning, sprinkle a little extra sugar onto the slice when frying.
  5. Meanwhile chop the strawberries into slices and wash/prepare the fruit.
  6. When all the toast is ready then simply top with fruit, sprinkle a light dusting of icing sugar and drizzle over some syrup. Alternatively, serve with the syrup in a dish on the side.
