French toast with ricotta and berries

French toast can be served with all sorts of fruit and nuts so don't be afraid to experiment with your toppings.


  • 1 medium egg
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of low-fat spread
  • 2 slices of wholemeal bread
  • 2 tablespoons of low-fat ricotta
  • 15 raspberries (60g / 2oz.)
  • 6 strawberries (75g / 2½oz.), halved
  • 1 tablespoon of flaked almonds


  1. Crack the egg into a bowl, add the cinnamon for sweetness and mix well.  
  2. Heat the low-fat spread in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until it melts. Tilt the pan to make sure the bottom surface is coated evenly with the melted spread.
  3. As the spread melts, dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture coating both sides well.
  4. Turn the heat up to high, heat for a further 30 seconds and then add the bread and cook for 1 minute on either side. The second side may take slightly shorter as the pan heats. You can add any excess egg mixture to the pan to cook if you like. 
  5. Once both sides of the bread are golden and the egg is cooked, remove and serve with the ricotta and berries. Sprinkle with the flaked almonds and enjoy!
