DIRECTIONS

  • If you are using ciabatta bread - 8 slices is the maximum.
  • In a saucepan, place the milk,sugar, zests, juices, vanilla and spices. Simmer for 5-7 minutes (it will start to smell amazing!).
  • Cool the mix for 5 minutes.
  • Add the bread all at once and leave it there to soak up all that goodness, allow a good 20 minutes.
  • Beat the eggs in a seperate bowl and in batches, carefully coat the bread.
  • In a large heavy based fry pan, add the butter (start with 2 tablespoons) and sizzle over a medium heat until fragrant.
  • Add 6 - 8 slices of bread (depending on the size of your pan - don't over crowd it) and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. Add more butter for each batch you make.
  • Repeat until all the bread has been fried.
  • Place the bread on a plate and sprinkle with icing sugar and serve warm.
