where in the book is it?

Banana and blueberry?

Must be it. Can't believe he called it french toast rather than eggy bread. And why isn't it under s*dding French Toast in the index?? cr*p index.

Yep its the french toast - wow never expected you to be on line so fast. Thanks

Had it in america once and they called it french toast but because my df always called it eggy bread I seem to have a mental block from calling it that.

take 2 sliceswhite bread and butter thinly on both sides. Toss fruit combo in a little honey or sugar.A little mashed banana holds it together nicely. Beat couple of eggs in a bowl with a couple of tablespoons caster sugar then dip both slices of bread in the sweet egg so it's egged on both sides. Let excess drip off then smear fruit mixture on one sliceleavng a gap round the edge. put other slice on top and press down. Fry in a little butter ina medium hot pan on both sides, pushing down so fruit is pressed into the bread. When golden and slightly crisp, dust with icing sugar and serve with dollop of creme fraich, cream or ice cream and any remaiing fruit mixture.

Suspect the banana and blueberry is the key as tentunturq says

By the way what do you think? I've only just got it and it looks good. We have guests coming tomorrow evening and I'm doing them the Maryland Chicken Sat evening with the Spanish roast chicken for Sunday.

<<rant rant>>

I've only flicked through the first 1/4 of the book so far so haven't seen much of it. Looks good though.

Blimey you lot are quick! i was going to post tthe recipe after picking up the kids if you'd come back and said "yes, that's the one". I come back and it's all done and dusted
I'd love to know how the Maryland chicken turns out - that;s the one I've been thinking of attempting.
