Step by step recipe:
Cut 6 slices Sandwich bread and trim off the crust.
Pour the mixture into a dish and leave the slices of bread to soak for 10 mintues on one side...
... then 10 minutes on the other side.
Melt 3 tablespoons Clarified butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.
Sprinkle the slices with sugar and place in the pan sugar side downwards.
Fry until golden on the first side, then turn over and fry the other side.
It's ready. Serve hot or warm. You can drizzle maple syrup over the top if you wish.
Remarks:This is a good way of using up bread that is going a bit dry, as this works even better than fresh bread.
You can make it with brioche too, and serve it simply with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, for example, or a little really cold whipped cream (chantilly).
Source:Home made, but based on how my mother used to make it when I was little.
