Course Breakfast


  • 8 slices gluten-free bread
  • 1 tbsp dairy-free butter for frying

Batter Ingredients

  • ½ cup dairy-free milk
  • 4 tbsp gluten-free flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • zest of one lemon
  • pinch of salt

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp poppy seeds


  • Place all of the ingredients for the batter into a shallow bowl and whisk together until smooth.
  • Depending on the size of your bowl, add one to two slices of bread at a time to the batter mixture and leave for a few seconds to soak and turn over so both sides are evenly coated.
  • Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a frying pan over gentle heat. Once melted, add the batter-soaked bread and cook for 4-5 minutes until browned before turning over and cooking for another 3-4 minutes on the other side. Continue to soak and cook the remaining pieces of bread.
  • Divide the french toast slices between plates.
  • Combine the glaze ingredients into a small bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Top your french toast with the glaze and maple syrup. Enjoy!


Cooking time can vary based on the thickness of the bread and amount of batter soaked into the bread.
