Enjoy this recipe for Sweet Eggy Bread as a quick snack or special treat.
4 large eggs
30 ml castor sugar
pinch of salt
250 ml milk
1 medium French baguette, cut into 2-cm thick slices (about 20 slices)
honey and ripe berries
or golden syrup and thin slices strong, mature cheese
or chocolate sauce and sliced bananas
Whisk together the eggs, sugar, salt and milk and pour into a shallow bowl.
Melt a little butter in a large heavy-bottomed non-stick pan or skillet over medium heat.
Place 4 – 6 slices of bread into the egg mixture just long enough for the bread to soak up a little egg mixture. Turn the slices around to coat the other side.
Cook the slices on both sides in the butter until golden. Remove from pan and place on a platter which you keep in the warming drawer or a low oven until you have cooked all the bread. Repeat the process (including more butter) until you’ve cooked all the bread.
Serve with any topping or embellishment of your choice.
