Topping

Rowse Honey

Punnet of Blueberries & Raspberries

50g/2oz Shamrock Walnuts (roughly chopped)

Method

  2. Dip each side of bread in the batter and allow to soak for a few seconds.
  3. Heat a knob of butter in a pan over a medium heat. Fry both sides of the bread until golden brown.
  4. Put 2 slices of hot toast on a plate, cover with sliced banana, drizzle with maple syrup or honey and sprinkle with the walnuts.
  5. If serving a large number keep the toast warm in a preheated oven 130°C/250°F/Gas ½!

The toast can be used for both sweet and savoury recipes! If savoury, omit the sugar and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

This is a great way to use up stale bread!!
