Banana and Blueberry French Toast

Sundays are by far the best day of my week.

You’ve done all the necessary errands and trips on Saturday, you’ve had the big lie in and chilled watching tv all evening, so Sunday is your day to have some time to do whatever you want.

So what’s a better way to start your lazy day than a fiendishly good breakfast?!


Golden french toast, stuffed with banana and blueberries, topped with natural yoghurt and honey.


Might not be the most photogenic critter you’ve ever seen but my god is it good.


To make one eggy bread sandwich you’ll need:

2 slices of bread

2 free range eggs

1 small ripe banana (needs to be soft!)

1 handful of blueberries

1 tablespoon caster sugar (granulated works fine)

1 or 2 tablespoons low fat natural yoghurt

1 teaspoon honey

Oil for frying

(I made two as my other half was staying over – don’t fret over the larger quantities in the photos!)


Crack your eggs into a bowl and add the tablespoon of sugar, then beat so it forms a pale yellow mixture.

Soak your bread in it for about 30 seconds each side so it absorbs all of the eggy mix.


Whilst your bread’s soaking, slice your banana into a bowl.


Mash it all up then add the blueberries and mix more, crushing them slightly.


When your bread’s ready, pop it onto a plate and smear most of the fruit mixture onto one slice, leaving a small gap around the edges.

Put the other slice on top and using a fish slice press them together a little to help them stick.


Heat some oil in a pan on a low heat and put your sandwich in.

Press down with the fishslice to make sure it’s in even contact with the pan and will cook evenly.

Once both sides are golden brown transfer to a plate, serve with the remaining fruit mixture, a dollop of natural yoghurt (or crème fraîche) and a drizzle of honey.


Clamber back into bed, sip on a freshly brewed coffee and enjoy your sunday morning treat.

Definitely worth getting out of bed for!
