This is back to the severe naughtiness with Drambuie Eggy Croissants, just a different twist. Again from a Baileys ad, in Good Food December 2005. Serves 4.
- 100 ml Baileys
- 2 medium eggs and 1 egg yolk
- 25 gms light brown sugar
- 50 ml milk
- 4 brioche finger rolls, sliced in half lengthways
- 25 gms unsalted butter
- Clotted cream and Chinese 5-spice powder to serve
Whisk eggs, yolk, sugar, Baileys and milk together until smooth.
Soak brioche for 20 mins, starting with the cut side down and turning over once.
Heat the butter and fry, 10 mins, starting cut side down and turning over once, til golden on both sides.
Top with cream and dust with spices.
This could be really gross. It doesn't have the orange tartness in the Drambuie version, which has orange zest in it as well. And it could be really sickly. But on the other hand …
