serves one

2 free-range eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
pinch ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons soured cream
2 slices white bread
knob butter
1-2 rashers streaky bacon
1 banana, sliced
few blueberries
maple syrup, to serve

Preheat the grill to medium. Break the eggs into a large shallow bowl. Add the sugar, cinnamon and soured cream. Beat the mixture well with a fork. Place the first slice of bread into the egg mixture, soak both sides of the bread and then hold over the bowl to shake off any excess. Repeat with the next slice. Melt some butter in a large frying pan (be careful not to burn it). When the butter is bubbling, put the egg-coated bread into the pan and fry until crisp and golden on both sides. Meanwhile put the bacon under the grill and cook each side until crisp. Place the French toast on the plate with the bacon and keep warm. Fry the fruit in a pan for 1-2 minutes, or until just soft. Place the fruit on top of the toast and bacon and drizzle with maple syrup.
