Lemon & Poppy Seed French Toast
A sweet, simple take on traditional French Toast with lemon zest and poppy seeds.
Serves: 2
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 slices brioche (or other stale bread)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • icing sugar, to taste
  • butter, for frying.
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, honey, poppy seeds and the zest of the lemon.
  2. Place the slices of brioche into a shallow dish and pour over the egg mixture. Leave to soak, turning occasionally.
  3. To make the raspberry sauce, place the raspberries, the juice of half the lemon, and a few teaspoons of icing sugar into a small saucepan and place over a medium heat.
  4. Cook until the raspberries are warm and pulpy. Taste, and add more sugar if desired. Set aside.
  5. To cook the french toast, place a large frying pan over a medium low heat, and add a tablespoon or so of butter.
  6. Once the butter is melted, add the pieces of soaked brioche, and cook slowly for about 2 minutes each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Serve warm with the raspberry sauce.
