Poor Knight's Dessert
2 medium eggs, beaten
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp oil
125g strawberry jam
50g California Raisins
100ml double cream
Icing sugar to serve
Preheat the oven to 180oC, gas mark 4.
Cut the baguette diagonally into 8 x 3cm slices.
Mix together the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla in a shallow dish and add the bread slices, leave for 1-2 minutes, turn over and leave until the egg mixture has been absorbed.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the egg-soaked bread for 1 minute each side until golden and transfer to an ovenproof serving dish, bake for 5 minutes.
Mix the jam and half the raisins together and whip the cream to soft peaks.
Top the knights with the jam, then add a dollop of cream, scatter with the remaining raisins and dust with icing sugar to serve.
Try different flavours of jam or try fruit compote instead.
