1/1 Photo of English 15th Century Poor Knights of Windsor - Boozy Toast!
French Tart's Note:
This dish originated during the middle ages in England and spread all over the world with many variations. Traditionalists would use stale bread, but stale cake is a good substitute. Red wine can be used instead of white, and you can add milk, as I have done here, you then have a more recognizable dish called, incorrectly, French toast. The Poor Knights of Windsor, incidentally, was a military order formed by King Edward III in the 14th Century.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Remove the crusts from the bread and cut each slice in half.
- 2Place 1 tablespoon of the sugar, the milk, white wine and sherry in a shallow dish and stir to dissolve the sugar.
- 3Place the egg yolks in a shallow dish and beat well then dip the slices of bread in the milk mixture and then into the egg yolks.
- 4Melt the butter in a large frying pan and fry the bread until golden brown on both sides. Drain well and keep hot while the remaining pieces are fried.
- 5To serve - sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and serve hot with strawberry or raspberry jam.
