Creamy Pain Perdu with strawberries

Just when everyone is trying to eat themselves slim and stick to their New Years resolutions, I am doing neither. Instead I am enjoying today’s freshly picked organic strawberries with eggy French toast or sometimes known as gypsy bread. Though looking at this gorgeous plate of food I am not sure this conjures up gypsy food?. So french it is, Pain Perdu, usually made from yesterday’s bread. I took Diana Henry (celebrated food writer) lead and made my pain Perdu with brioche.

Recipe Pain Perdu
Ingredients and instructions:
2 eggs, 1 egg yolk, 2 tablespoons caster sugar, 150 mls cream. Beat this together in a shallow bowl or dish.

8 slices of brioche, cut in half. Lay them in the eggy mixture for 5 minutes. Melt a knob of butter in. Frying pan and fry the brioche until they Are golden. Set aside to drain on paper towels. Serve with whipped cream, icing sugar and sliced strawberries.
