  1. - 8 slices of bread (thickly cut)
  2. - vegetable oil for frying (or other flavourless oil)
  3. - 2/3 cups plain flour
  4. - 1 1/3 cups dairy-free milk
  5. - 2 tbsp golden syrup
  6. - 1tsp vanilla essence
  1. - juice of 1 orange
  2. - zest of 1/2 orange
  3. - 3/4 cups caster sugar + 2tbsp
  4. - 2 tbsp golden syrup
  5. - 2 tsp cornflour mixed into 1/2 cup water
  1. - orange syrup, ingredients above
  2. - small handful of walnuts for each serving
  3. - zest of 1/2 orange
  1. To start, make the orange syrup. In a non-stick pan over a low heat, combine all the ingredients, leaving the cornflour mixture until the sugar has completely dissolved. Slowly pour in the cornflour mixture and then turn the heat up to a boil whilst stirring continuously for 5 minutes. In this time, the syrup will thicken. Set aside to use later.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the batter until the consistency is smooth and fairly thin. One by one, dip a piece of bread into the batter and then fry in a generously oiled non-stick pan. If you want to serve everything at once, keep the cooked French toast in the oven on a low temperature.
  3. Serve with a decent drizzle of orange syrup, a small handful of walnuts and a light sprinkle of fresh orange zest.
  1. To make this in advance, follow all instructions and then reheat the French toast in the oven or toaster the next day. It honestly tastes just the same as freshly made and can ensure everything is served hot at the same time.
