Method

  1. In a wide dish, whisk the egg, milk and vanilla together. Coat one side of the bread slices in the liquid, then carefully flip them over and leave them to soak for 1-2 mins.

  2. Melt 1 tbsp of the butter in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and add two slices of bread. Cook for 5 mins or until golden, then turn to cook the other side for another 5 mins. Transfer to a plate and cook the other two slices in the rest of the butter.

  3. Halve the toast on the diagonal and spread each slice with the ricotta. Drizzle over the honey and a pinch of flaky sea salt, and arrange some sliced strawberries in a fan across the toast. Decorate the plate with the halved strawberries and mint.

This was really soggy and definitely not enough egg to milk ratio. Very disappointing. The edges were nice, the middle of the bread far too soggy to eat. Shame

Little tip to avoid the soggy bread: Use 4 or 5 day stale bread. Had french toast this morning and it was so much better like that!

So I looked up what 300ml would equal to in other measuring units. It said 300ml was equal to 1 1/4 cups. I'd never made French toast before, but even I know how soggy bread gets when it is soaked in a liquid. So the first day I attempted this recipe, I left the bread in for less than a minute and it was so soggy it nearly fell apart on it's way to the pan. The toast did fall apart when I flipped it. Definitely didn't turn out like the pictures. The next day I took the little bit of milk/egg mixture I had left from the previous day and added one more egg to the mix. Today they turned out beautifully and were delicious! I would say that the recipe calls for too much milk and the egg ratio needs to be higher. Once I did this they turned out like the picture and were delicious!
