Fruit Bread French Toast with Baked Figs is the perfect ‘I Love You Mum’ breakfast in bed.

Author: Bread & Butter Chef Louise Dolben
Serves 4


4 slices Fruit Bread.
2 Eggs. 1/2 cup Pure Cream or Milk.
50g Unsalted Butter plus extra for cooking the toasts.
8 Fresh Figs. 1/4 tsp ground Cinnamon.
1 tblsp Vanilla Sugar.
3 tblsp water.


1. Preheat oven to 180*C.
2. Quarter the figs taking care not to cut all the way through to the bottom. Put into a small oven proof dish so that they sit snugly up against one another (figs can be replaced with other seasonal fruits such as apple or pear, just bake for longer).
3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan then add cinnamon. sugar and water. If you don’t have any Vanilla Sugar simply use caster sugar and a drop of pure vanilla extract. Stir to combine and drizzle over the figs. Bake for 10-15mins.
4. While they are cooking make your French Toasts. In a large flat bowl, beat the eggs and stir in the cream. Dip the pieces of fruit bread in the mixture until they are quite soggy. Melt a little butter in a fry pan and cook the pieces of bread until they are golden brown on each side.
5. Serve the French Toast with a couple of the warm figs, drizzle over a little sauce from the bottom of the cooking dish and dollop on some Greek Yogurt if you like.
