  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Grease a 1ltr ovenproof dish.
  2. Spread each slice of bread with the jam, then cut each slice in half to make triangles. Arrange the bread triangles in the baking dish, in 2 lines, jam side down, scattering with the blueberries and lemon zest as you go.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, milk, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour half of this custard mixture over the bread and allow it to soak in for 10-15 mins. Pour over the remaining custard just before baking.
  4. Bake for 25-30 mins, or until golden brown and puffed up. Serve with dairy-free cream or ice cream, if you like.

Tip: Get the kids to help in the kitchen, they can butter the bread and help to layer the dish and whisk together the dairy-free custard.
