    Serves: 2


    • 2 medium eggs, lightly whisked
    • 3 tbsp half fat crème fraîche
    • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    • 2 tbsp caster sugar
    • 4 slices Waitrose Richly Fruited Bread
    • 25g butter
    • 2 Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Peaches, halved, stoned and thickly sliced
    • 1-2 tbsp Cointreau (optional)
    • 1 tbsp icing sugar, to serve


    1. Place the eggs, crème fraîche, cinnamon and caster sugar in a bowl and whisk together until frothy. Dip the slices of bread into the mixture, turning them over a couple of times to make sure they are well coated.
    2. Melt half the butter in a large frying pan until foaming. Fry the pieces of bread for 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned and the egg has set. Cut each piece in half and arrange on 2 warm dessert plates.
    3. Heat the remaining butter in the frying pan, add the peach slices and cook over a high heat for 2-3 minutes, turning once, until lightly browned. Add the orange liqueur, if using, then spoon the peaches and their juices over the toast. Serve straight away, topped with a dusting of sieved icing sugar.
