Cherry French Toast Sandwich by Driscoll's

This Cherry French Toast is a quick and easy brunch recipe that makes the most out of fresh juicy British cherries and is a healthier take on the breakfast classic.

With lots of extra sweet cherries available this year, there is no better time to add an extra flavourful punch to your French toast this summer.

This recipe can be also made with any bread or milk you choose, so you can give it your own individual twist.


Cherry French Toast Sandwich

  • • 2 slices of bread (stale bread works especially well)
  • • 1 vegan egg alternative
  • • 50ml plant based milk
  • • 5-6 cherries, de stalked and stoned
  • • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • • 2 tbsp plant based Crème Fraîche alternative
  • • 1 tbsp agave
  • Spray of oil for cooking


Cherry French Toast Sandwich

• Roughly chop your cherries and add to a pan with a teaspoon of brown sugar.
• Briefly stir and heat on a medium heat for around ten minutes until they are broken down and syrupy.
• Allow to cool slightly.
• In a shallow bowl, crack in your egg alternative and pour in the milk.
• Whisk well and dip each side of your bread in the egg mix.
• In a separate small bowl add your Crème Fraîche and agave syrup and stir in the cherries.
• Heat a pan over a medium heat and cover with a little spray oil
• In the heated pan, lay down one slice of the bread before topping evenly with the cherry mix and placing the second slice on top, and pressing down gently.
• Cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip the bread over and repeat.
• Remove from the heat and enjoy!
