Mix the eggs, milk, lemon zest and 1 tbsp
sugar in a shallow dish. Add the bread, then
turn in the liquid until well soaked.
Put 2 tbsp sugar and 25g butter in a frying
pan, then heat gently until the sugar has
melted. Add the plums, then fry until they
are softened and the juice is golden brown,
about 5 mins. Add the lemon juice, then
heat gently to make a light syrup.
Heat the remaining butter in a large non-
stick frying pan, then add the slices of bread
and fry on each side until golden brown. Put
two slices on each plate, sprinkle with the
remaining sugar, then spoon over the plums
and their juices. Serve as they are or with
crème fraîche or vanilla ice cream.
