This is not really a recipe-rather it’s a suggestion of things that you put together and fry. I haven’t even given quantities as you can make one or ten toasties. A loaf of raisin bread was result of a brisk supermarket sweep sans lunettes. A larder re-organisation also unearthed rather a lot of hazelnuts that were nearing (past if I’m honest) their use-by date. This was the perfect excuse to make some choc hazelnut spread. I think brioche would work at a push, although it is softer and doesn’t stand up to frying very well-unless it’s been dipped in egg and cream, as if you’re making French toast.
- Raisin bread
- unsalted butter
- I quantity of chocolate hazelnut spread (see Larder section)
- Take two slices of bread and spread liberally with the butter. Turn one slice over and spread with the chocolate hazelnut spread. Sandwich both slices together, buttered sides out.
- Heat a frying pan and fry the toastie for about 1-2 minutes each side until golden brown. Eat while still warm.
