Perfect French Toast for Mother’s Day


4 eggs

355ml milk

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp sugar

a pinch of salt

4 1/2 tbsp butter (more as needed)

6 thick slices white bread or brioche

maple syrup

handful of blueberries (optional)



Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Whisk the eggs, milk, nutmeg, vanilla extract, sugar and a pinch of salt in a bowl.

Heat 1/2 tbsp butter in a frying pan over medium heat.

Working in batches, the bread in the egg mixture and cook in the pan until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side, adding more butter as needed.

Transfer to a baking tray and bake until puffed, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt 4 tbsp butter in the same frying pan until browned, about 5 minutes.

Drizzle the French toast with the browned butter and maple syrup. Serve with a scattering of blueberries.
