  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1⁄4 lemon

For the cinnamon sugar

  • 1⁄2 cup oat milk
  • Scant 1⁄3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp superfine sugar

  • 1⁄2 tsp baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon

To serve

  • A handful of nuts
  • Plant-based pouring cream


  1. 1.

    Toast the bread slices • Place the skillet over medium heat and melt the plant-based butter • Lay a slice of bread in the batter for 2–3 seconds, then flip it over and leave it for another 2–3 seconds • Transfer to the skillet • Repeat with the remaining slices so you have them all in one pan (you may have to do this in batches) • Flip the slices after about 3 minutes and fry until both sides are crisp and golden
