Yields 1 Dish


  • Oven or a Toaster Oven
  • Oven Friendly Dish
  • Whisk


  • 3 Eggs
  • 4 Sliced Breads
  • 1 cup Castor Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Essence
  • cup Milk
  • Cinnamon (Optional)
  • Honey (Optional)
  • Raisins (Optional)


  • Take a bowl, add egg and sugar, whisk together until the sugar gets properly dissolved with the egg. Might create a pale-ish yellow color.
  • Add in the milk and mix well. Finally, add in the Vanilla Essence into this mixture and mix well.
  • Take your Dish and add Sliced Breads to it. You can either add vertically lying down or you can alternatively make layers of these breads horizontally on top of each other.
  • At this point it is optional for you to let the dish be or to bake it straight away. If you aren't in a hurry, let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour so the bread soaks everything properly.
  • Top it up with Cinnamon, Honey and/or Raisins, up to your pallate and put in the oven or your toaster oven
  • 160°celcius for 10-15 minutes or until done. Keep a check on it, it won't take super long.
