Creme brulee French toast

Method

  • The day before serving, gently cook the melted butter, sugar and corn syrup in a heavy-bottomed pot until smooth, stirring now and again. Then evenly pour into a large oven tray (or baking dish). 
  • Cut 6 slices of bread and remove the crusts. Then neatly arrange in one layer on the sauce, squashing it in if necessary. 
  • Whisk the cream, milk, eggs, vanilla essence and Grand Marnier until well combined. Then pour the mixture over the top of the bread and refrigerate overnight. 
  • When ready, preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal) and cook the pudding in the oven for about 35-40 mins until puffed and the edges are pale golden. 
  • Serve with a sprinkling of icing sugar on top and a good dollop of ice cream on the side.
