  • 3 eggs
  • 150 ml milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 8 slices of ciabatta
  • 50 g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • oil, for frying
  • 6 figs, cut in half
  • 80g raspberries
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 25 ml water
  • Whipped cream


Preheat oven to 180°C. Place figs in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, until slightly browned. Leave to cool.

To make the mashed raspberries, place the berries and sugar in a pot over medium-high heat and add the water, then stir. When the water starts to simmer, take it off the heat and mash with a fork. Leave aside.

Cut a slit on one side of the ciabatta slice and stuff with dark chocolate.

Heat oil in a grill pan. Dip the bread lightly into the egg mixture and the grill on both sides for 2-3 minutes, until browned.

Serve with whipped cream, mashed raspberries and figs. Enjoy!
