  • 250ml milk
  • 1 tsp sugar (optional)
  • 30g butter, plus extra to serve

In a wide, shallow bowl, beat eggs lightly with a fork. Stir in milk and sugar, if using.

Transfer bread into frying pan and cook until bottom is golden brown, then turn and brown the other side.

Serve French toast hot with butter, chocolate sauce and berries.

Serves 4 Prep time:5 mins Cooking time: 20 mins 

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp white grape vinegar
  • 2 English muffins, halved, lightly toasted and buttered
  • micro herbs, to serve
  • For the hollandaise sauce
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp white grape vinegar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 125g unsalted butter, melted

To make Hollandaise sauce, in a bowl, whisk together lemon juice, vinegar and egg yolks until light and frothy. Place bowl over a pan of simmering water and whisk until mixture thickens. Gradually add butter, whisking constantly until thick. Season to taste and keep warm.

To poach the eggs, bring a large pan of water to the boil and add vinegar. Lower the heat so the water is simmering gently. Stir water to create a slight whirlpool. Crack an egg into a bowl and then slide it into the pan of simmering water. Cook for about 4 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon.
