Eggy Fruit Bread with Berries and Cream

cook 10 mins
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 25 g (1 oz) caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 25 g (1 oz) butter
  • 4 thick slices of fruit bread
  • 125 g (4 oz) mixed fresh berries
  • 8 tablespoons crème fraîche
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • maple syrup, for drizzling
  • Beat the eggs with the milk, caster sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Melt the butter in a large, heavy-based frying pan. Dip the fruit bread slices, 2 at a time, into the egg mixture on both sides and allow to soak in the mixture, then lift out and cook over a medium heat for 1–2 minutes on each side until golden and set. Remove and stack to keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, mix half the berries into the crème fraîche.
  • Spoon the berry cream on to the warm toasts, then scatter over the remaining berries and dust with icing sugar. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
