Torrijas (Spanish-style French toast)

  • Bring milk to the boil along with the sugar and cinnamon stick.

  • Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Cut the bread into slices just over 1 cm thick.

  • Place the slices in a high-sided bowl and pour on the boiled milk until they are covered and well soaked.

  • Remove the slices one by one, batter with flour and egg and fry in a pan with sufficient well heated oil.

  • Drain thoroughly and sprinkle with caster sugar and powdered cinnamon.
