Servings: 2 people



  • 4 Slices Brioche thickly cut
  • 2 large Free-range Eggs
  • 120 ml Full fat Jersey milk
  • 1 small Vanilla pod
  • A pinch Nutmeg freshly grated
  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted Jersey Butter
  • A drizzle of Vegetable Oil
  • 100 ml Maple Syrup
  • 1 Banana sliced
  • 50 gram Blueberries


  • Carefully slice open the vanilla pod using a sharp knife and scrape out the seeds. You can save the vanilla pod to make vanilla sugar.
  • In a large bowl whisk the eggs, full-fat milk, vanilla seeds and nutmeg. Add the brioche slices and allow to soak for a few minutes. Turn over and continue to soak.
  • Heat a little of the oil and butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until it starts to foam.
  • Carefully drain two slices of the eggy bread with a slotted spatula and transfer to the pan. Fry the bread for approximately three minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  • Remove and keep warm placed on kitchen paper, on a baking tray in a warm oven. Repeat the process and cook the remaining bread.
  • Serve with banana, blueberries and maple syrup.
