Cinnamon Toast

This is a variation on the classic French bread or Pain Perdu, ‘lost bread’ as it is best made with your leftover stale bread.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk (or cream!)
  • 2 tsp freshly ground cinnamon
  • 4-6 slices of white bread (preferably a bit stale)
  • 30g (1oz) butter
  • Icing sugar to dust


  1. Place a frying pan on the heat. 
  2. Lightly whisk the eggs and milk together, and pour through a sieve, into a bowl, add the cinnamon. 
  3. Dip both sides of the bread into the egg mixture, and place on the medium hot pan.
  4. Turn over when lightly browned and cook on the other side.  Serve straight from the pan, dusted with icing sugar.

**NOTE This is also great without the cinnamon.


Serves anything from 2 – 10 people!!

Depends on who is drinking it!!

1 bottle of good sparkling wine (I would not use expensive Champagne for this, but a decent
bubbly all the same)

About 10 oranges

**Squeeze the juice from the oranges and into each champagne glass pour enough juice to come up about one third of the glass. Then slowly top up with bubbly, being careful it does not overflow!!
