Eggy bread is one of the standout treats of my childhood. Lovingly made by my mum. You soak bread in beaten egg, fry each side until golden and slightly crispy then top with sugar and ground cinnamon. You could also eat it with a little honey on top and bacon on the side. This time my boys helped plonk the bread in the saucepan (with supervision!)
Nothing beats using demerara sugar as the granules are large and crunchy so you get a little nugget of sweetness. But any sugar will do. Comfort food in 10 minutes!
Eggy bread (serves 2)
2 pieces bread
1 large egg, beaten
Splash of milk
A little sugar
A little ground cinnamon
Beat a large egg, mix in a splash of milk then pour in to a shallow bowl. Put both pieces of bread in the bowl to soak, turning them over so they evenly absorb the mixture. Heat a little butter in a pan until melted and bubbling slightly then add the bread. Fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Eat topped with sugar and cinnamon!
