Hi Mr Fitz,
I know you like French Toast so here is an interesting variation I think you’ll enjoy. A real breakfast treat served with cream, syrup and or fresh fruit. So here is what I did.
I preheated the oven to 180 ( using an accurate thermometer ) (jack has an issue with his oven sometimes!). I then filled a lightly greased ovenproof casserole with bread cubes.
In a separate bowl I beat together eggs, milk, sugar a pinch of salt and as much vanilla extract to taste. I then poured this over the bread, dotted the top with butter and let it stand for 10 minutes.
For the topping I mixed a generous amount of sugar and cinnamon and sprinkled over the top.
This was baked for 45 minutes on the middle shelf. I had a look about half way through and decided to cover loosely with tin foil for the remaining time since the top was starting to get too brown.
Took it out of the oven when the time was up and left it to cool for a minute before serving with double cream some grapes and a handful of sultanas.
Absolutely fabulous. Will I make it again. You bet I will.
If anyone wants more info re quantities etc. just let me know.
Be nice!!!! X
