  1. 4-6 big slices of stale bread
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 4 tbsp milk or water
  4. 4 apples
  5. A drizzle of honey or maple syrup (optional)
  6. 2 tbsp oil or butter for cooking
  1. Get your bread slices ready.
  2. Whisk your eggs with the milk or water in a shallow dish.
  3. Dip the bread slices into the egg mix. Use a fork to lightly prick the bread to help the egg mix soak in.
  4. Leave to soak for at least 10 mins or overnight in the fridge.
  5. Cut your apples into 1cm slices, discarding core and stem.
  6. Place the apples in a sauce pan with enough water to come half way up the apples. Pop a lid on. Simmer for 10 mins or until tender.
  7. Take the lid off, cook till all the water is absorbed and apples are sticky, tender and sweet.
  8. Swirl in a little honey or maple syrup to sweeten, if you like.
  9. Set a large frying pan over high heat. Add the oil. Lower the heat to medium. Add the eggy bread slices in a single layer.
  10. Cook in batches if needed. Fry until golden on each side.
  11. Pile the toast on to plates capped with a mound of the apples.
