“This recipe is an absolute winner, not only is it easy to make, but it’s incredibly delicious and the perfect breakfast for any morning. I also used Califia’s new Vanilla Oat Milk for a naturally sweet, dairy-free and creamy base which worked perfectly in this recipe,” says Cherie Tu.

Makes: 8-10 slices (approx. 3 servings)

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 15 mins


1 cup Califia Farms Vanilla Oat Milk

2 tbsp cornstarch/cornflour

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

8-10 slices dense crusty bread

Vegan butter, for frying


  1. To a shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the milk, cornflour, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt.
  1. Heat a large frypan over medium heat. Add in a dollop of vegan butter and spread around the pan until melted.
  1. In the meantime, add your bread to the batter and soak on each side for 15-20 seconds until well coated. Only do this with as many slices that can fit into the pan in 1 batch (roughly 2-3).
  1. Place the bread onto the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes until both sides are golden. Repeat with any remaining bread and batter.
  1. To serve, top with fresh berries, a dusting of icing sugar and maple syrup.
