Listen to the recipe podcast:


8 slices brown bread, crusts removed
70g (2 ½ oz) butter (or margarine)
3 eggs
50g (2 oz) brown sugar (replace with white sugar if you prefer)
450 ml semi skimmed milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ tbsp extra brown sugar
1 ½ packs of Rolos, cut into quarters (use 2 packs if you like a lot of chocolate). You can replace with Mars Bar or other caramel and chocolate based sweets if you prefer


1 lb loaf tin


Preheat the oven to 180 c. (gas mark 4)

Grease your 1 lb loaf tin.

Butter the bread on both sides.

Using half of the chopped Rolos, make sandwiches by sprinkling a slice of buttered bread with Rolos and then covering it with another slice. Do this with all the bread and then cut these sandwiches into four diagonally, to make little triangles.

Arrange the triangles in overlapping rows in the tin.

Whisk together eggs, sugar, milk and cinnamon, pour this over the bread in the tin.

Sprinkle the remaining Rolos and additional tbsp of brown sugar on top and bake in the preheated oven for 40 mins until golden and crispy on top.

Serve warm, with bananas as an accompaniment if you wish. You can refrigerate the leftovers and eat the following day.
