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.
