Chocolate French Toast

I can't honestly say that this recipe is quick & easy as I did find it rather fiddly. it is however delicious, so worth it. the recipe comes from my favourite chef Bill Granger & is from his latest book, Holiday!

serves 4

3 eggs

185 ml (6 fl oz or 3/4 ) cup milk

1 tablespoon caster (superfine) sugar

a pinch of salt

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

8 slices white bread

100 gr ( 3 1/2 oz) milk or dark chocolate, chopped

to serve icing (confectioners) sugar

whisk together the eggs, milk, caster sugar & salt in a flat dish. heat the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.

dip 2 slices of bread into the egg mixture, turning them over untill completely coated. put them into the frying pan & sprinkle each one with a 1/4 of the chopped chocolate. soak another 2 slices of bread in the egg mixture and put on top of the chocolate bread in the pan to make sandwiches. press lightly with a spatula to seal the edges.

cook for 3 minutes each side or untill golden brown. remove and serve immediately or keep warm while you make the other 2 sandwiches. serve dusted with icing sugar.
