Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup full cream milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 generous pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 generous pinch ground nutmeg
  • butter for frying
  • 1 baguette cut into one-inch thick slices


  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, honey, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Set the stove to medium heat. Melt two to three tablespoons butter in a frying pan.
  • Dip (oh, please do not soak) both sides of three to five slices of baguette in the egg-milk mixture then fry in a single layer in the hot butter. Cook about a minute per side or just long enough to brown the bread. Repeat, adding more butter to the pan, until all the bread slices have been cooked.
