French toast bites with a melted speculoos drizzle

I dread to think just how many times I have made French toast: it’s probably beyond normal, and I’m OK with that. I do change up the sauce for these: you can just use a chocolate hazelnut spread or even a berry compote instead of the speculoos if you want to take your French toast to a whole new level.


  • 1 good sourdough loaf or bread of your choice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 200ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • low-calorie oil spray
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp smooth speculoos spread (I use Biscoff)


  1. Cut up the sourdough or bread of choice into chunks – you can get rid of the crust if you prefer it softer.
  2. Combine the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Dip the bread chunks into the mixture to lightly coat, shake off the excess, then spray really well with the low-calorie oil and air fry at 190C for 6-7 minutes.
  3. Once cooked, sprinkle with the sugar.
  4. Melt the Biscoff spread in a bowl in the microwave for 50-60 seconds, then drizzle over the toast bites.
