TORRIJAS (SPANISH FRENCH TOAST)

Sugared French Toast squares. Make a generous batch of these on Maundy Thursday, keep them in the fridge to see you through to Easter, they continue delicious they were even when fried and eaten cold. Use a stale loaf or brioche that will absorb the flavours in the milk without disintegrating.

SERVES

Serves 4

ingredients

  • 250ml milk
  • 50ml double cream
  • 80g sugar
  • the peel of 1⁄2 a lemon
IN STOCK
  • the peel of 1⁄2 an orange
IN STOCK
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 4 slices of stale bread, from a tin loaf or brioche
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or 40g clarified butter
  • 11⁄2 tablespoons sugar, to finish
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, to finish (optional)
  1. Warm the milk and cream in a pan with the sugar, peel, cinnamon stick and vanilla pod (seeds scraped in). Heat gently and just before it comes to the boil, take off the heat and leave for 30 minutes to infuse.
  2. Arrange the slices of bread in a wide, shallow dish and pour the infused milk and cream over them. Leave for at least 10 minutes, to allow the bread to soak up the mixture.
  3. Break the eggs into another wide, shallow dish and beat them with a fork. Once the slices of bread are soft with milk, coat each slice on both sides in the beaten egg.
  4. Heat the oil or clarified butter in a large frying pan and fry the slices, no more than one or two at a time, on both sides for about 2 minutes, until they brown around the edges. Then serve, or keep in the fridge and eat when cold, sprinkled with sugar and, if you like, ground cinnamon.
