Seriously Decadent French Toast
Wonderful comfort food, best served to love ones still in bed.
300ml fresh cream
1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
100ml vegetable oil
4 thick slices brioche
(or French bread)
Cinnamon sugar, to serve
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, brandy (if using) and cinnamon.
Put the oil and butter into a frying pan and heat until the butter is frothy. Place each slice of bread in the egg mixture and soak for 20 seconds on each side (a little longer if using French bread).
Carefully lift each piece out and fry for one minute on each side, ensuring the oil doesn’t get too hot.
Drain on paper towels . Dredge with cinnamon sugar. Serve with maple syrup, cream and/or fruit.
Tip: brioche loaves are available in the bread section of supermarkets – they are quite soft so take care when cooking and turning over.
