50ml/2fl oz lactose free milk
2 free-range eggs
2 thick slices gluten free bread
2 knobs unsalted lactose free butter
1 tbsp caster sugar
pinch - ½ tsp ground cinnamon, to taste
1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced
maple syrup, to taste
Serves - 2
Whisk together the lactose free milk and eggs in a wide shallow bowl.
Dip the gluten free bread slices into the egg and lactose free milk mixture for one minute, making sure the liquid soaks into the gluten free bread on both sides.
Heat a knob of lactose free butter in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat.
Once the lactose free butter is melted, fry the gluten free slices for two minutes on each side until golden-brown and crisp. Remove from the pan and place onto a serving plate.
Combine the caster sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Add another knob of lactose free butter to the pan over a high heat.
Once melted, add the sliced banana to the pan, toss in the melted lactose free butter and fry for two minutes, or until caramelised lightly on the outside.
Serve the French toast with the caramelised banana, a sprinkle of the cinnamon sugar (any extra can be stored and used again) and a drizzle of maple syrup.
