French Toast Recipe Warburtons

As you know, this week  I have been taking part in Warburtons Hi-Taste, Lo-Fat healthy eating plan,

I got messy with Crispy Tomato Chicken, recipe here' had a sweet treat with the  Fruit Compote with Honey Muffins 'recipe here', made a healthy Salmon and Dill tart using bread instead of pastry. My third recipe is just really worth making.

This is my favourite recipe to date, and yet on paper I was not looking forward to eating it, I have since bought more Warburtons Fruit Loaf with Orange to make for Sunday brunch. It is that good, seriously!!

I left the bread in the egg for a good while to really soak in and it also puffs up much more when frying. Again if you want to go even lower fat, use Fry Light or a similar low fat cooking spray!

 I love mine with raspberries, I also omitted the cinnamon for my portion, are you guessing I'm a bit fussy yet? Everyone else loved the spice on theirs.

What is so good about this is the Orange flavour really shines through, we all eat French toast in the house, but normally as a savoury dish. This tastes like pancakes soaked in orange, the fruit in the bread becomes very juicy and certainly different to how I would normally eat it, that is toasted or with butter.
Its yum and a good two portions of my five a day with the Orange fruit loaf and raspberries too!

French Toast Recipe


  1. 2 free range eggs
  2. 2 tbsp semi skimmed milk
  3. About 1-2 tsp vegetable oil
  4. About 5g small piece low fat butter
  5. 8 slices Warburtons Fruit Loaf with Orange
  6. A pinch of ground cinnamon
  7. About 3 tsp small sprinkling of sugar
  8. 4 handfuls fresh cherries or berries or other fruit, to serve


  1. Directions
  2. 1. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk and mix with a fork
  3. 2. Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan
  4. 3. Dip a slice of the Warburtons fruit loaf with orange into the egg mixture and put it straight into the pan, depending on the size of the pan you should fit 3 or 4 slices in the pan at one time. Cook for 2 -3 minutes on each side or until cooked and golden
  5. 4. Repeat with the rest of the bread and egg mixture. 
  6. 5. Cut each slice of French Toast in half, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and serve with fresh cherries or other fruit
You can see how the recipe is made by Amanda Grant who has teamed up with Warburtons to bring these low fat and very tasty dishes!


  1. We love French toast so will give this recipe a go, and hope that it's a hit.

    1. Hope it is for you, the fruit loaf with orange really makes a lovely change!

  2. I don't think I have ever had french toast. I haven't lived!

    1. Oh you certainly haven't Esther, try it its scrummy!

  3. Thanks for this, I wouldn't eat it myself (also fussy) but my children would love it.

  4. Never tried French toast with fruit loaf. I'll definitely give it a go. I also love plain French toast dipped in sugar.

    1. Ooh yum! Another one for me to try now I like sweet French toast!

    2. Bought a Warburton's fruit loaf yesterday and tried the French toast on my girls. The youngest loved it & demolished them quickly but the eldest (fussy about dried fruit in things) didn't. C'est la vie.

    3. I have one that's not keen on fruit in breads, scones etc either. Did you try it Maya?

    4. Yes, I thought they were really delicious.

  5. my kids love french toast, will need to try this out!

  6. Ooh, haven't had french toast in years, will have to give it a go.

    I love french toast when we are on a cruise, with some smoked salmon (hows that for special!!) Must have a go at making some at home for a change lol.
    Thank you for another great recipe to add to my list of things "I must do".

  8. Very nice explained recipe! Food looks wonderful on the photos.

  9. Wow, this looks yummy. We do not usually have bread or toasts for breakfast because we are Orientals. Rice is usually on the table. So, this recipe is something new for me. I really want to try this at home. Thank you for sharing this post.

  10. Great brunch idea! All I need to do is train my kids to make it then serve me it in bed! (In my dreams lol!)
