INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg
3 peaches, stones removed, thickly sliced (see tip)
French toast:
3 eggs
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons icing sugar mixture
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
20g butter
4 slices thick white bread
Vanilla yoghurt, extra icing sugar mixture, to serve
METHOD

  1. In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar, water and spices. Stir on low heat for 1-2 minutes, until sugar dissolves.

  2. Add peaches. Simmer, uncovered, 3-5 minutes until peaches just soften (see tip).

  3. French toast: Meanwhile, in a medium shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, icing sugar and vanilla.
