  • 2 tsp soft brown sugar
  • a few drops vanilla extract
  • a pinch cinnamon
  • 2-4 thick slices (depending on how big each slice is) good quality white bread or brioche
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 150ml double cream
  • 6 walnuts, freshly shelled and broken into quarters
  • clarified butter
  • nutmeg


  • STEP 1

    Whisk the eggs with the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and a large pinch of salt. Put the bread in a shallow dish and pour the egg mixture over it, making sure it‘s completely covered. Leave for 20 minutes to soak. Meanwhile, tip the maple syrup and cream into a pan and let them bubble until the mixture thickens a little. Add the nuts and a pinch of salt, and let it bubble for another minute.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a frying pan to medium and add a little clarified butter. Add the bread and fry for about 2 minutes on each side until the edges brown and the egg mixture begins to crisp. Grate a little nutmeg over and flip the slices to cook the other side. Slide the french toast onto 2 plates and spoon over the sticky toffee walnuts.
