It uses nutritional yeast, (which seems weird, but it does give it an eggy essence. (Nutritional yeast isn’t the same as baking yeast. Look for yellow nutritional yeast flakes )

You can use any bread but a French loaf or ciabatta is best as it absorbs the mix without getting too soggy & falling apart. It should be at least a day or 2 old. – it’s a great recipe for using up leftover bread. Handy during these times of quarantine.


    4-6 slices of French or ciabatta bread, sliced about ¾-inch thick
    1 cup Oat (or plant-based Milk) We used the Innocent one as it is very nice, has a more luxury taste)
    1 tablespoon syrup, plus more for serving
    1 tablespoon flour
    1 tablespoon icing sugar
    1 tablespoon nutritional yeast**
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    Tiny pinch of salt
    Coconut oil or vegetable spread.


  1. In a bowl whisk together the Oat milk, syrup, flour, nutritional yeast, icing sugar, cinnamon & salt.
  2. Place the bread in a shallow dish (with sides, pour the mixture over the bread, leave it to absorb for a couple of minutes & turn over so all sides are covered.
  3. Heat some vegetable spread or coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat, add the bread slices, cook for a few minutes each side until golden brown.
  4. Serve with syrup and fresh fruit.
