8 sandwiches


  • 2 eggs

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 slices plain bread, cut into 4 pieces

  • 1 cup oil for frying

  • 1 cup milk, divided

  • 2 tablespoons custard powder

  • ½ cup confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup whipped cream

  • 8 strawberries, halved

  • 8 toothpicks


  1. Whisk eggs, 3 tablespoons milk, white sugar, and vanilla extract together in a shallow bowl until smooth.

  2. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

  3. Dip 4 pieces of bread in egg mixture and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining pieces.

  4. Combine 2 tablespoons of milk with custard powder in a small bowl; stir until smooth. Bring remaining milk to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir custard mixture into the saucepan. Reduce heat and cook, stirring frequently, until custard thickens, about 5 minutes.

  5. Place 8 bread toasts on a shallow tray. Spread custard over each piece. Cover with remaining 8 toasts to form a sandwich. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Top each sandwich with a dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry. Insert a toothpick through the fruit to hold the sandwich together.
