    I've got enough kids! I'm not impressed with the thought of attracting more with cinnamon eggy bread- I'm going to ban middle son from making it with immediate effect!

    After conducting eggsperiments this morning, i have deduced that on a high heat (using oil), one slice requires just one minute each side.

    I am willing to conduct further eggsperiments with a pan over a moderate heat which would suit the oil/butter method more, but have run out of eggs.

    Does anyone know where i can buy some...

    Eggy update.

    After watching the you tube video, I did eggsactly the same thing.

    Worked out when to turn it over and ate it.

    I don't know what I was expecting but I thought it tasted like an omelette with bread in it, which is what it is I suppose.

    One mistake for me was that I used brown bread with seeds and stuff in it. Next time It will bog standard white. It's like a bacon butty, that has to be white as well.

    Mmmmm.....that was tasty, we all enjoyed it even though I got an excited "Oooh-Pancakes! " as I was cooking it.

    Just did the 2 slices between the 3 of us (incase it went wrong :rolleyes:) this time but will be 2 each on my next attempt.

    Glad of the suggestion to serve with ketchup ..that really made it !

    I'd seriously consider white bread next time too. nothing against wholemeal bread, but it just isnt the same for eggy bread as white

    Teenage son usually makes himself toast in the evening, hollow legs etc.

    Just made him eggy bread with white bread.

    "Mother" he said, "that was a taste sensation"

    I can't believe that we have been deprived for all these years.

    And you know something else that I have never had in my entire life because it sounds wrong?

    Bread and butter pudding.

    Why make a pudding out of bread when you can choose Chocolate or treacle or other lovely scrumptious yummies?

    But in my week of new experiences I might get Mary Berry to point me in the right direction.

    Bread and Butter pudding is one of those things you completely forget about...

    Oh Withy,


    I wonder what your pudding will be tomorrow after your eggy bread?

    Do you need eggs for bread and butter pudding?

    There might suddenly be a shortage of eggs in Stafford.......



    Rather like the "Delia Effect" ...... It's a "Stafford Forum effect"

    Bread and butter pudding is a massively moveable feast.

    Brioche, hot cross buns, teacakes, croissants, etc, etc...

    Yes, basically bread-based stodge in an egg custard.

    Oh yes.
