French toast

The first time I had french toast was in Singapore at Jimmy Monkey Café (if you are ever in Singapore, Jimmy Monkey is definitely worth a visit). It was so good! In the past I’ve always thought it sounded really strange with break soaked in egg and milk. Now I’ve tried to recreate the experience from Singapore. This is a luxury edition of french toast with heavy cream. You can easily make with with milk only.

It is important that you use good bread – not just toast bread. I made my french toast with a sour dough made from wheat and rye flour.

Serves 2 people


  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 dl heavy cream
  • 1/4 dl milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 slices of bread (preferably a day or two old)
  • Butter for the pan
  • Icing sugar
  • Fruit (e.g. banana and blueberries)
  • Maple syrup


In shallow baking dish, beat the eggs lightly. Add heavy cream, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon and beat well. Place two slices of bread in the mixture and press them down slightly to soak up custard. Let them soak for a while and then turn them over and let them soak for another 30 sekunds.

Melt a good dollop of butter on a frying pan over medium heat. Transfer the two slices of bread to the pan. Repeat the soaking process with the last two slices of bread. Fry the slices for a couple of minutes on each side or till they are golden. Stack the slices of bread, sift over a bit of icing sugar and decorate with fruit. Serve and drizzle maple syrup on top.
