Eggy Bread – You can enjoy this dish for breakfast by adding some maple syrup and crispy bacon on top or for dessert with a scoop of your favourite ice cream.


  • 2 slices of brioche (normal white bread can be used)
  • 1 banana sliced
  • Peanut butter – chef’s favourite is crunchy
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 250ml of double cream (milk can be used)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • a bowl of cornflakes


  • Whisk together eggs, cream and vanilla essence until combined tip into a tray and set aside
  • Crush your cornflakes, I put them in another tray and go to work with a potato masher, they do not have to be too fine
  • Spread the peanut butter on both slices of brioche and layer the banana onto one side of peanut butter
  • Put one slice of brioche onto the other as if you were making a sandwich
  • Squash down a little then dip fully into the egg and cream mixture, turn over and dip the other side
  • It is important that all the bread is dipped into the egg and cream
  • Lift up and dip into the crushed cornflakes, turn over and repeat the process
  • Try and cover as much of the bread with cornflakes as possible
  • Fry the sandwich in a little oil and butter (use a non stick frying pan if possible) on a medium heat
  • When the first side is golden brown turn the sandwich over and fry the second side
