As you know, we love cooking in our Cocina and are always looking for new recipes to try out and to share with you.

This recipe has replaced the pancake recipe (that is featured in our children’s language-learning cookbook)  as the children’s first choice for breakfast at the weekend.

And I must admit, it is really easy to make and not too much washing up so it gets brownie points in my book too!

You can add whatever filling you like. We include berries and fruit to add a little bit of “healthy”! LOL! It’s the weekend so we are allowed to break the rules a bit!

The ingredients you will need are:


The ingredients

A few slices of crustless soft sliced bread, 2 eggs, a cup of milk, a cup of sugar (can be brown or white) and some cinnamon (vary quantity according to taste preferences).

Some butter for melting in the frying pan.

Your choice of fillings. ie. chocolate spread, cream cheese, honey, bananas, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries

To make the rolls:

Whisk the eggs and milk together in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl or on a plate, mix the sugar and cinnamon. Place on a surface close to the cooker.

Add your chosen fillings. Ensure the fruit is added at the edge of the slice of bread and is not cut too thick and chunky (otherwise the next bit might be a bit tricky!)
