For the syrup:

  • 180ml honey
  • Juice of 1/2 an orange
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the french toast:

  • 65g almonds
  • 3 eggs
  • 180ml milk
  • Few drops of vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • 8 thick slices of brioche bread
  • 3 tbsp butter


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Step 2
In a small bowl, whisk the honey, orange, orange zest and cinnamon.

Step 3
In a shallow wide bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt. Crush the almonds and spread out on a plate.

Step 4
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt 1½ tbsp butter in the skillet. Dip half the bread slices in the egg mixture, letting it soak in for about five seconds on each side. Place both sides of the bread in the almonds, pressing them into the side.

Step 5
Put the bread in the melted butter and grill until browned, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Put the finished bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat until all bread is used.

Step 6
Bake the grilled bread in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through. Serve the french toast slices with a drizzle of honey.
