Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 jumbo blueberry muffins, 1-2 days old
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • unsalted butter, to fry
  • fresh fruit, to serve
  • white chocolate, to serve, optional
  • maple syrup, to serve, optional
Instructions
  1. Slice muffins vertically by cutting a thin slice off the rounded edges on opposite sides (you can eat these thin slices, or discard), then slice the remaining chunk of muffin down the middle so you get two thick slices. You'll end up with 8 slices in total. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly combined; transfer mixture to a shallow dish. Place 4 of the muffin slices into the egg mixture, leave for about 5-10 seconds, then flip the slices over to coat the other side for another 5-10 seconds. Transfer the slices to a plate.
  3. Heat a frying pan (one wide enough to cook 4 slices at a time) over medium heat with about a tablespoon of butter (add about a teaspoon of flavorless oil to keep the butter from turning too brown, if you like). When the butter is melted, smear it around the pan with a spatula and very carefully place the coated muffin slices in the pan. Cook until golden, about 4-5 minutes, then carefully flip the slices over and cook again until golden. When finished, I usually stand the slices up on their edges and lightly cook the sides as well. Remove from the frying pan and set aside on a clean plate.
  4. Repeat the dipping and cooking procedure with the remaining 4 muffin slices. Whisk in some more cinnamon and nutmeg if the egg-mixture looks a bit bare. You should have only just enough mixture to coat the remaining slices; turn the slices on their sides, if necessary, to coat the entire slice and soak up all the mixture.
  5. To serve, stack 2 slices on top of each other, top with fresh fruit and grate over some white chocolate with a fine grater. Finally, add a small glug of maple syrup. Serve immediately and enjoy!!
