Cooking Time

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 SPAR Freshline plums
  • 2 SPAR Freshline peaches or nectarines
  • 20g SPAR Castor sugar
  • 4 SPAR Freshline white bread
  • 1 large SPAR egg
  • 150ml SPAR Low Fat 2% Milk
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 20g SPAR butter
  • SPAR Icing sugar, for sprinkling

Recipe Method

Halve, pit and slice the plums and peaches or nectarines. Put them into a saucepan with the castor sugar and 100ml water. Simmer for 8-10 minutes, until just tender.
Meanwhile, cut each slice of bread in half diagonally.
In a large shallow dish, beat together the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Add the pieces of bread and leave them for about 5 minutes, turning them over once so that each side gets a good soaking.
Heat the butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the soaked bread and cook it gently for about 1-2 minutes per side, until golden brown.
Share between 4 warm serving plates and spoon the fruit on top. Serve, sprinkled with a little icing sugar.

Hints & Tips

In this recipe you can make the most of bread, brioche or panettone that needs using up to avoid waste. In fact, it helps if the bread is 2-3 days old, as its drier texture soaks up more of the liquid.
