Brioche french toast with banana and crunchy dukkah

Print is recipe

French toast is a brekky favorite in my house and a Sunday morning ritual we never miss. The crispy outside and soft gooey egg center is just irresistible and always leaves plates empty. I’ve tried many a variation with new fruit combinations and toppings to change things up so when Emma from My Market Kitchen told us she was including our Egyptian Dukkah in her recipe I was so excited it become a regular breakfast treat ever since!

The butteriness of the brioche that soaks up the egg and cream mixture like a sponge with sweet slices of fresh banana and topped with the crunch and spice of dukkah, this unusual take on a classic fave will leave you with one very happy household!

As always, make these recipes to your own taste. If you’re not a fan of bananas substitute with strawberries or some fresh blueberries. Occasionally I add a side of crispy bacon; the saltiness works so well with the sweet brioche and the nutty crunch of the dukkah. we lots of other great recipes using dukkah, you can find them here
