There is an amazing Jewish bakery near where I have just moved in East London called Rinkhoffs that sells the most amazing (and huge!) challah loafs. With all the pieces that I haven’t munched on – it is addictive – I use the next day or freeze to make French Toast. It has confirmed my suspicion that challah or other brioche breads make the best French toast. They soak up the mixture so well and have an underlying sweetness. Feel free to mix up the fruit topping with whatever it seasonal where you are currently. This is perfect weekend indulgence!

  • 4 Slices of Challah Bread
  • 2 egg
  • 100ml (1/2 Cup) Milk
  • 2 Figs
  • Greek Yoghurt
  • Honey
  • Thyme (leaves picked off the stalk)

Put a non-stick frying pan on the heat and melt a little butter or oil in the pan.
Mix together the eggs and milk well in a wide based mixing bowl. Add the slices and soak for around 30 seconds as it absorbs the liquid. Transfer to the frying pan (you may need to do this in two batches or use two pans). Cook on either side for about 3 minutes until golden.
Transfer to a plate and top with the Greek yoghurt, drizzles of honey and the thyme then top with the figs. Enjoy!
