Banana and blueberry french toast
This recipe is by Jamie Oliver and can be eaten for breakfast or even as a dessert. Feel free to vary to fruit, strawberries and blackberries also work particularly well.

Optional: icing sugar, for dusting

1 small banana

A handful of blueberries

1 large egg, preferably free-range or organic

1 tablespoon golden caster sugar

2 slices of medium-cut white bread

10g butter, at room temperature

Low-fat Greek yoghurt, to serve

 Peel the banana and mash in a bowl 

Add the blueberries and lightly crush

 Crack the eggs into a separate shallow bowl, add the sugar and beat with a fork 

 Put the slices of bread in the sweet egg mixture, and turn after approximately 1 minute so they soak up the egg mixture on both sides 

 Pick up the bread and let the excess egg drip off, then pop on a plate

 Smear most of your fruit mixture onto one slice, leaving a little gap around the edges 

 Put the other slice on top and press down with a fish slice to help them stick together

 Put a frying pan on a medium heat and add a knob of butter 

Once melted, add the eggy sandwich and press down with the fish slice to make sure it’s in even contact with the pan 

 Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, then lift up with a fish slice to check it’s golden brown on the bottom

When it’s looking good, flip over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until golden and crisp 

Transfer to a plate and serve with a dollop of yoghurt or crème fraîche, and the remaining fruit mixture spooned over the top 

 Dust with icing sugar, if you like
