French toast with fruit

Serves 4 Takes 15 mins to cook Takes  10 mins to prepare Vegetarian 1 5 a day portions


4 slices sliced fruit bread
1 egg
150ml skimmed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp vegetable oil
4 bananas sliced
200g frozen summer berries or forest fruits thawed


1. Cut the slices of bread in half diagonally.
2. In a large shallow dish, beat together the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Add the pieces of fruit bread and
leave them for about 2-3 minutes, turning them over once so that each side is thoroughly soaked.
3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan and add the vegetable oil. Add the soaked bread and cook it gently for
about 1-2 minutes until it has set and turned golden brown. Turn over the pieces and cook them on the
other side for another 1-2 minutes.
4. Share the bread between four warm serving plates. Slice the bananas over the top and serve with the
thawed berries.

Tip 2: Instead of bananas or berries, try a sliced fresh mango or canned pineapple chunks or peaches
packed in natural fruit juice.
