1 – Egg
2 slices – Bread
A dollop of honey or maple syrup
Fruit of your choice


Use a fork to make a dent at the center of the bread, without cutting it.

In a bowl, mix all the wet ingredients. Fill up the dented part of the bread with the mix. Top it with the fruit of your choice, or chocolate, and place in an air fryer for about 10 minutes, or in the oven at 400°F for a bit longer, until the bread is crisp and the custard is set.

Garnish with powdered sugar, honey or maple syrup.
