Figgin’ Delicious French Toast

Figgin’ Delicious French Toast

French toast & fig - is there a better combination? 

  • Choose your bread, and slice it up about 1 cm thick. Spinach Bread will work too. 

  • Break a couple eggs into a shallow bowl and add 1 tablespoon of milk per egg. Beat well to combine. 

  • Place a nonstick pan over medium-high heat with a generous knob of butter, tilting the pan to evenly coat. 

  • Dip the slices of bread in the eggy mixture. Then, fry in the hot pan for 2-3 minutes on each side until they start to caramelise and turn brown. Depending on the quantity you are making, create more egg mixture as needed. 

  • Plant-based option: Spread some vegan butter on both sides of the bread and toast in a hot pan.

  • Serve your french toast with a dollop of yoghurt/coco yogurt, some slices of sweet fig, and a scattering of nuts of your choice, we like to use walnuts or pecan nuts. 

  • For even more indulgence, grate some chocolate/vegan chocolate over the top of the slices to finish them off. OR a little sprinkle of cinnamon could do.


Did you know? Figs are actually inverted flowers, meaning that they bloom inside of the pod itself. Eventually, the flower matures and turns into the fruit we consider to be a fig!
