Breakfast in bed what a treat! Snug and warm under the duvet. Maybe served with the weekend papers and of course a lovely pot of tea. Lazy and indulgent perfect for Sleepy Sunday.

If you fancy something special in a flash and don't to slave over a hot stove. Try our gorgeous recipe

Dormouse’s Sleepy Sunday French Toast
You will need:


2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon cooking oil
175ml milk
225g cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons chopped almonds
2 tablespoons light brown soft sugar
110g raspberries, divided
1 teaspoon lemon juice
8 slices bread

How to make it:

Stir the cream cheese, almonds, light brown soft sugar and lemon juice together in a bowl until the mixture is soft and thoroughly combined; spread over one side of each bread slice.

Place 1/4 of the raspberries onto a bread slice; press down on the berries to keep them from rolling off. Top the raspberries with a cream cheese-spread slice. Repeat three more times with remaining berries to make four raspberry sandwiches.
Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon together in a bowl until blended. Add a small amount of oil in frying pan and heat over medium-low heat.
Dip each raspberry sandwich into the egg mixture on both sides; fry in the prepared frying pan until golden brown, about three minutes per side.
You can also try this recipe with blueberries, strawberries or blackcurrants. Enjoy with or without whipped cream and extra berries!
