For the French toast:

2 large eggs

60ml milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp Nutella, for filling

4 large slices of brioche

1 tbsp softened butter

Icing sugar, for dusting

For the sweet berry sauce:

100g frozen berries

1 tbsp caster sugar

Small saucepan

Hand-held blender

Large flat dish

Large frying pan

30 mins
Serves 2

This is definitely not an everyday breakfast, but for special occasions it makes a wonderful celebration breakfast.

To make the sweet berry sauce, place the berries and caster sugar in a small saucepan with 50ml of water. Bring the mixture to a steady simmer and cook until the berries are soft. Blitz with a hand-held blender or mash with a fork.
In a large flat dish, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Spread the Nutella on each slice of brioche and then make two sandwiches.
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat until it is foaming. Soak the brioche sandwiches in the eggs and milk and place straight in the pan to cook for 2–3 minutes on either side until golden.
Remove from the pan and slice in two. Place on two warmed serving plates and drizzle with the berry sauce and dust over the icing sugar.

    I decided to give this a try with some aging banana bread. I haven’t had French Toast in over 10 years because I don’t care for it much. But this was really good.
