We had some left over country loaf from Sunday’s bake. After a two days of eating bread with dinner, find I thought it would be good to have bread for dessert. A few months back, we had been watching The Best Thing I Ever Ate’s Rise and Shine Episode. What caught both our eyes was the thick cut pain perdue.
We only used one 2″ thick slice of bread, so I quartered the recipe.
- 1 2″ slice of country bread
- 1 c heavy cream
- 1/4 c sugar
- 2 g salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbs unsalted butter
- AP flour and sugar for sprinkling
- Powdered sugar for dusting
- Combine heavy cream, sugar, salt, and eggs and mix thoroughly with a wisk.
- Pour mixture over bread, let sit for a few minutes, and flip the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Heat large oven proof pan over medium to medium high heat. Melt butter.
- Sprinkle flour and sugar on the bread, and when the foam subsides cook the bread on one side until richly colored, approximately 5 minutes.
- Flip the bread and put the pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes until cooked.
- Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup
