French Toast
  • Description:

    A divine weekend breakfast, brunch or even a weekday treat, this French toast recipe is a definite crowd pleaser. If you don’t have much time in the morning, you’ll also be happy to hear that you can make it the night before without losing out on any flavour. A bit of lemon zest and a touch of cinnamon really gives the dipping mixture a special touch. Serve it with lime marmalade for a meal with some zing. Serves: 4

  • Ingredients:

    Pinch of ground cinnamon
    8 slices fresh white bread
    Rhodes Lime Marmalade

    1. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until light and airy.
    2. Stir in the lemon zest, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
