  • 40ml double cream

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • 4 thick slices of bread

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • icing sugar and fresh berries, to serve

  • STEP 1 Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Lay the slices of bread in a single layer in a shallow dish and pour the egg mixture over them. Allow to soak for 2-3 mins, then carefully turn over and soak for 2 mins more.

Fry for 3 mins on each side, until golden and crisp, then place on a wire rack over a baking tray in a warm oven while you repeat with the remaining slices.
