RECIPE: Six Fruit French Toast with Honey Butter

Waking up is hard to do… isn’t that how the song goes? Maybe not, but it’s still often true, especially if you went to bed a tiny bit late last night. One thing guaranteed to help the situation though, is a delicious, cooked breakfast.

And sure you can go for the lard-laden fry up, but if you prefer something a little more delicate, we have just the treat for you. Now, just to try and hopefully talk someone else into cooking it for you so you can get a little more shut-eye!

You’ll need:

  • 6 slices of Shepherd’s Artisan Bakehouse Six Fruit or Fig & Walnut Sourdough bread
  • 4 free range eggs
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 120ml pouring cream
  • 1/2 cup butter + extra for frying
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • Tiny pinch ground cinnamon
  • Fresh figs or other fruit to serve (berries are nice)


Whisk together eggs, cream, sugar and vanilla bean paste and pour into a shallow dish. Heat your best frypan over medium-high heat and melt some butter to coat pan.

Working quickly, drop a slice of bread into the egg mixture, then flip it over to thoroughly coat both sides. When drenched, drop into the hot buttered pan – it should sizzle. Flip over and brown both sides, then remove and keep warm in very low oven while you do the rest.

Meanwhile, mush together the softened ½ cup of butter with the honey and cinnamon until well combined, then push into a little dish and pop back in the fridge.

When all the toast is fried, serve on platter with the butter and some fresh fruit.
