The fried slice is a 2 cm (3/4 in) piece of brioche, soaked in a cream, egg and sugar mixture and then shallow-fried in butter. It’s served with a loose, fresh blackberry-jam sauce spooned on top with melting extra-thick cream. Yum!


  • 4 × 2 cm (3/4 in) slices of home-made or bought brioche (a good plain, soft loaf will also work)
  • 4 eggs


Whisk together the eggs, sugar and cream. Soak both sides of the brioche in the cream for a few minutes. Melt the butter in a large frying-pan on a medium heat. Shallow-fry the slices for 2–3 minutes on both sides. This will give a golden brown, slightly crisp texture, leaving an almost warm ‘doughnut’ consistency inside. Put the slices on plates and spoon the warm jam sauce on top. Finish with
