Add the milk. In the supplies I've put 100ml but it's up to you how much you add. I keep pouring until I reach 150ml as I'd rather have extra mixture than too little!

You can add a little cinnamon or vanilla extract when you add the milk but I don't like to as it tastes too sweet for me.

6
Whisk. Sometime it's easier to tilt the jug.

Put some butter or oil in a frying pan. I use salt free butter because I add a lot of salt to the meal anyway.

Turn on a low to medium heat. If it's too high the butter will burn. Too low and the bread won't cook.

Pour your eggy mixture over the slice of bread. This works better than putting the eggs in first as the top half gets longer to absorb the mixture.

Transfer the bread to the pan. I use two hands so it doesn't break up. It's easier if you have someone else to hold the bowl underneath.

Your hands are probably covered in egg but wash them after you've moved the bread around the pan a bit, otherwise it will instantly stick.

Cook until it's a sort of brown colour on the under side - this should take about 5 minutes - then flip it over. (I was cooking bacon too)

And serve. I spread butter on my toast, and add bacon and ketchup. You could also garnish with basil or drizzle maple syrup on top. Don't forget the cup of tea!
