You will eat it, and you will like it…

Sunday morning. Breakfast in Bed. Two things that belong together. And today I wanted to do something nice for Mr Lid.

Although it is difficult making Mr Lid breakfast in bed because he never really eats breakfast because its too early- usually a coffee will suffice.

So I made it anyway and I made something sweet-ish so I knew I would have my work cut out for me making him eat it- doesn’t sound as pleasant as a leisurely breakfast in bed does it?

Caramelised Orange Brioche french toast, with orange sourcream.




Orange Zest & flesh


Brown sugar

Sour cream



Mix egg with some milk, vanilla and orange zest- soak brioche in eggy mixture both sides.

Melt butter in a non stick pan (if you have one). Sprinkle both sides of brioche with brown sugar and fry in pan on low heat- making sure to add more butter if needed- caramelise both sides, remove.

Fry orange flesh in the pan adding a touch more brown sugar (these were oranges off our tree so they were pretty sour)

Meanwhile mix sour cream, vanilla, honey and some more orange zest. You could use creme fraiche, or cream or yoghurt I had none of these hence the sour cream- but it added a nice sour/ creamy element to the dish.

Layer everything on a plate and serve.
