  • 2 large eggs
  • 200 ml milk (or dairy-free milk of choice - I used almond)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 slices thick, soft bread (I used gluten-free bread)
  • 2 peaches
  • 3 tbsp butter (or dairy-free spread/neutral oil)
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • Your favourite yoghurt (for topping - I used coconut yoghurt)
  • Extra maple syrup or icing sugar (optional - for topping)


  • Slice the peaches.
  • Beat the eggs in a large dish. Add the milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and cinnamon and whisk vigorously (to make sure the cinnamon is well mixed through).
  • Soak your bread in the egg mixture. If the dish is not big enough to fit all 4 slices in, distribute the mixture between separate dishes. Make sure both sides of the bread are well coated and leave to soak whilst you caramelise the peaches (about 10 mins).
  • Heat 1 tbsp butter (or dairy-free option) and the brown sugar in a large saucepan until melted. Cook the peach slices over a low to medium heat for about 10 minutes until tender and caramelised. Give them a stir occasionally to stop them sticking and ensure both sides of each slice are cooked evenly.
  • In another large saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tbsp butter (or dairy-free option) over a medium heat.
  • Using a spatula, carefully transfer each slice of bread into the hot pan (if you use your hands it may fall apart!). Cook until nicely browned. They will need just a couple of minutes on each side.
  • Serve and top with the peaches and your favourite yoghurt (I used coconut yoghurt). For extra sweetness, you can finish it off with a good drizzle of maple syrup or icing sugar.
