How to Whip Perfect Cream


  • 1. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, milk and ¼ cup sugar together. Dip each slice of bread into mixture to soak through on both sides.

  • 2. Pour ½ cup sugar into frying pan. Heat on high, shaking pan, until sugar melts and begins to turn golden brown around edges. Add butter and orange juice. Add peaches, cut-side down. Cook for 2-3 minutes until undersides caramelise. Set syrup aside.

  • 3. Heat extra butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. Fry bread pieces in batches for around 2 minutes each side until golden and crisp.

  • 4. Combine mascarpone and vanilla. To serve, place 1 or 2 pieces of toast on a plate, spoon 2 peach halves and syrup on top, then dollop with mascarpone.
