I have never made French Toast before so I was looking forward to trying this delicious recipe by Glenisk. The French Toast is served with Glenisk Organic Greek Style Rich Dark Cherry Yogurt. This recipe turned out great and I would definitely make this French Toast again for a treat.
1-2 tsp Cinnamon 4 Medium eggs 1 tbsp Vanilla Essence 8 Slices Whole meal/brioche or sourdough bread 2 tbsp Oil 200g Glenisk Organic Greek Style Rich Dark Cherry Yogurt
Garnish (optional) Fresh fruit and icing sugar
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk, add vanilla essence and combine. Place a pan on medium heat. Drizzle with oil.
Pick the bread up with a fork and dip back and front in egg mixture, do this one at a time.
Transfer the egg dipped pieces of bread to the preheated pan and fry for a minute on either side until golden and the egg mixture is cooked.
Sprinkle French toasts with cinnamon and icing sugar and serve with Dark Cherry Yogurt and fresh fruit.

This is a Tesco recipe and doesn’t take long to cook. Go wild with your favourite toppings 🍓🍐🍌🍯 I made this for brunch today. These pancakes make the perfect breakfast or after-dinner treat.
150g self-raising flour
250ml semi-skilled milk
oil for greasing
toppings of your choice (I chose Big Red Kitchen Butterscotch Sauce)
Put the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and about half of the milk.
Using a whisk, or wooden spoon, mix to a smooth, thick batter. You may need to add a little more milk if the batter is too thick to mix.
When the batter is smooth, gradually stir in the rest of the milk until it is well combined.
Add a small amount of oil to the frying pan; just enough to give a non-stick layer to the surface of the pan. Heat on high until the oil begins to smoke, then turn down the heat to medium.
Pour 15ml spoons of batter into the pan. This should make pancakes about 3cm in diameter.
Leave each pancake for about 30 seconds. Bubbles will appear on the surface and the mixture will start to set. Flip each pancake over using a palette knife or fish slice and leave for another 30 seconds.
