  • To Start... The Butterscotch Sauce:
  • Heat the double cream (80°C) and steep the Earl Grey tea bags in the cream for 5 mins. Squeeze the tea bag to extract all the cream and tea.
  • Melt the butter and add the brown sugar. Stir in the salt and double cream and simmer until the sauce thickens. Set aside.
  • Next... The Orange Whipped Cream:
  • Whisk all the ingredients together until the mixture forms soft peaks.
  • And Finally... The French Toast:
  • Heat the milk and sugar until boiling and allow the tea bags to steep in the mixture for 5 mins.
  • Slice the brioche loaf into approx. 8 thick slices (2 slices per person).
  • Whisk the eggs and milk together. Dip each slice of bread on both sides in the milk mixture for 30 seconds each side.
  • Heat the frying pan over medium heat. Add the butter and oil and allow to warm before frying the slices for 2-3 minutes each side or until slightly golden.
  • Serve the French toast with the whipped cream, orange slices, blueberries and Earl Grey butterscotch sauce.
  • Now enjoy your luxurious Earl Grey French Toast in bed with a cup of your favourite Twinings Earl Grey blend and relax.
  • Happy Baking!
  • CHEF TIPS: ENSURE THE PAN IS HOT BUT NOT TOO HOT OTHERWISE YOU'LL GET SLIGHTLY CHARRED BITS ON THE FRENCH TOAST INSTEAD OF NICE AND GOLDEN. TEST THIS BY FRYING A SMALL CUBE OF BREAD THAT HAS BEEN DUNKED IN FRENCH TOAST BATTER
