Method

Use bread that’s a few days old if possible, as it will soak up the egg better and have a crisper finished texture. Serve with fruit compote or, for an over-the-top treat, with chocolate hazelnut spread.

  1. Put the eggs in a shallow bowl that the bread can fit into. Press the bread slices into the egg mixture, turning to soak up all the egg.
  2. Melt the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until foaming. Add the bread and cook for 3–4 minutes, turning once, until golden on both sides.
  3. Mix the sugar and cinnamon on a shallow plate and add the cooked bread, turning it to coat both sides. Cut into triangles and eat immediately.
