  • 4 pears, peeled
  • 2 eggs

  • 50ml milk
  • 1 tbsp liqueur such as Cointreau
  • 4 thick slices sourdough bread

Method

Bring the water, sugar and cinnamon to the boil. Add the pears and simmer for 10 minutes or until tender but still firm. Drain and thickly slice crosswise.

Whisk the eggs, vanilla, milk and liqueur in a bowl, and dip the bread in the batter for 2 minutes until coated. Melt the butter in a fry pan and fry for 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Sprinkle sugar over the bread, turn and cook the other side until golden and crisp.

Spread each slice with chocolate and top with a sliced pear. (Add a little zig-zag drizzle with melted chocolate if you like.)
