Method

  1. Put the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and golden caster sugar into a large, deep dish and whisk together.
  2. Beat the soft cheese with the icing sugar until spreadable. Spread the soft cheese over 2 slices of bread, drizzle with 1 tbsp compote then sandwich with remaining bread. Submerge the sandwich into the egg mix and allow to sit for 30 secs before carefully turning it over and soaking the other side.
  3. Melt the butter in a large frying pan until foaming, then cook the sandwiches for 3-4 mins on each side until golden and slightly puffed. Slice in half and serve with extra blackberry compote and a scoop of ice cream if you like.

Delicious. Made these for a birthday breakfast and they went down a storm. Used mascarpone for the cheese and a black current compote. I found that the egg mixture was pretty generous, especially if your bread isn't very stale.
