NHS guidelines suggest men should aim for 2,500 calories per day to maintain a healthy body weight, and women require around 2000 calories.

Step 1

Draw a simple outline of a ghost on a small piece of thin card. We made our ghost template about 8cm tall and 8cm wide, but you may need to adjust the size to make sure it leaves a border all around when placed on your slice of bread. Cut out the ghost template and set aside.

Step 2

Place the ground cinnamon and icing sugar in a ramekin dish and stir until completely mixed.

Step 3

Pour the beaten eggs onto a plate. Lay the slice of bread in the beaten egg and leave to soak for a minute or two. Carefully turn the bread over using a fish slice and soak the other side for a minute or two.

Step 4

Spray a small non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a low heat. When the pan is hot, place the egg-soaked bread slice in the pan and cook for about 2 minutes until lightly golden. You can gently lift the edge of the bread with a fish slice to see if it’s ready to turn. Flip the bread and continue to cook the other side for a further 2 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step 5

Transfer the toast to a serving plate. Place the cinnamon and icing sugar mixture in a small sieve and lay the ghost template in the centre of your toast. Hold the template firmly in place and dust all exposed parts of the slice well with the cinnamon and icing sugar mixture. Carefully lift off the template and you should see your ghost appear!

Recipe notes

Tip: We used white bread rather than wholemeal bread as the image of the ghost will be more obvious on white bread.
Tip: If you'd like to see a different spooky image on your toast, just use thin card to make a simple template for the image you'd like. Other suggestions are bats, vampires, witches, pumpkins or anything else you fancy!
