Recipe: French Toast with Spiced Plums and Maple Mascarpone

I was just messing around in the kitchen yesterday trying to come up with something to eat and stumbled upon this glorious spiced mapley goodness.
I love throwing brunch for everybody i actually prefer it to a sunday roast, its the perfect weekend activity getting family and friends gathering round the table filled of great food. 
After road testing it yesterday this French Toast will defiantly be on the table in the future. 

The spiced plums and maple mascarpone would make great toppings for pancakes, waffles or even as a desert on their own. 
This recipe can be multiplied to how ever much servings you need.

Serves: 4 people

  • 4 slices of day old Bread

You'll find the my recipe for Spiced Plums here.

French Toast (Eggy Bread)

Heat up a frying pan with some Vanilla Oil on a medium heat. Meanwhile whisk up the eggs with the milk and cinnamon in a dish. Then soak the bread on both sides until all of the egg mixture is absorbed.
Place the bread into the pan and fry until golden on both sides.
Its now time to mix up the Maple Mascarpone, in a bowl combined the mascarpone with maple syrup to taste. 

Spiced Plums: can be made in advance 

Add the plums,cinnamon,brown sugar, marmalade and some water into a saucepan on a medium to low heat. Stew the plums until soft then remove from the pan and cook the water mix until a gloriously thick syrup.
