  3. Whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, and half the syrup in a large jug. Slowly pour egg mixture into the baking dish. Smooth surface with a large spoon to submerge ingredients.

Tips

  • For a nut-free bake, replace almonds with sunflower seeds and use a nut-free milk.
  • Pears can be replaced with sliced apples, or summer stone fruit.
  • Top with a dollop of yoghurt to serve, if you wish.
