Not-so frenchy toast

Breakfast will be done in a jiffy with this indulgent recipe cooked in an air fryer



1.Peel a thin strip of rind from 1 orange and finely grate 1 teaspoon rind. Squeeze juice from both oranges; you will need ½ cup juice.
2.Combine orange strip, orange juice and maple syrup in a small heatproof bowl with halved and extra whole cherries. Pull out the pan and basket of a 5.3-litre air fryer. Place bowl in the basket. Slide the pan and basket back into appliance. Set temperature to 180°C and set timer for 4 minutes, to preheat air fryer and warm the cherry mixture.
3.Whisk grated orange rind, eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow dish until combined. Dip half the bread slices, one at a time, into egg mixture, turning until soaked; drain away excess.
4.Taking care, pull out the air-fryer pan and basket; remove bowl with cherry mixture and cover to keep warm. Spray the basket with oil. Place the soaked bread slices in basket. Keep temperature set at 180°C and set timer for 10 minutes; cook, turning halfway through cooking time, or until bread is browned and cooked through.
5.Transfer French toasts to a plate; cover to keep warm. Repeat dipping remaining bread slices in egg mixture, then repeat cooking with more oil spray.
6.Serve French toasts topped with yoghurt, flaked almonds, and warm cherry mixture, drizzled with extra maple syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon.
