  • 2 Peaches
  • 6 Sourdough bread slices, fresh or stale
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 160 ml (⅔ Cup) Milk
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Flour
  • ¼ - ½ Tsp Ground cinnamon
  • ¼ Tsp Ground nutmeg
  • Butter & oil for cooking
  • Maple syrup & whipped cream for serving


  1. Add eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg to a shallow dish and whisk vigorously until the mixture is evenly combined.

  2. Place a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat then add approximately 2 tablespoons of both butter and oil.

  3. Once the frying pan is hot, submerge slices of bread into the egg mix. Coat slices well on both sides until they absorb the mixture slightly then shake off the excess. (If you're using stale bread then allow the slices to sit in the egg mixture for at least 15 minutes)

  4. Cook sourdough for approximately 2 minutes on each side.

  5. Slice the peaches into quarters then remove the seed. Brush a griddle with a thin layer of oil or butter then place it on a medium heat. Grill peaches for 2 – 3 minutes on each side until slightly charred.

  6. Serve the French Toast with grilled peaches, maple syrup and whipped cream. Enjoy
