Poor Knights of Windsor

Serves 4

2 eggs, lightly beaten

50ml milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

a pinch of ground cinnamon

2 tbsp golden caster sugar

50g tub full fat soft cheese

1 tbsp icing sugar, sifted

2 tbsp cherry jam, blackberry compote or any other preserve

4 slices, day old white bread

25g butter

Put the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and golden caster sugar into a large deep dish and whisk together.

Beat the soft cheese with the icing sugar until it is spreadable. Spread the soft cheese over 2 slices of bread, then add the jam or preserve. Sandwich with the remaining bread. Submerge the sandwich into the egg mixture and allow to sit for 30 seconds before carefully turning it over and soaking the other side.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan until foaming, then cook the sandwiches for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and slightly puffed. Slice in half and serve with more jam or preserve and a scoop of ice cream if you like.
