    Serves: 6 

    • 1 (500g) loaf French bread
    • 4 large eggs
    • 2 tablespoons Irish whisky
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 50g butter
    • 1 teaspoon icing sugar for dusting

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Cut the bread into 12 slices. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, Irish whisky, Irish cream liqueur and vanilla extract until well blended.
    2. Heat some of the butter in a frying pan over medium heat until the butter is hot and the foam has disappeared. Press each bread slice into the egg mixture, then fry in the hot frying pan until nicely browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add more butter to frying pan as needed. Brush each slice with butter, and sprinkle with icing sugar to serve.

    Awesome flavor! These were perfect for our Patty's day breakfast. I followed the recipe except some leprechauns turned ours green! My kids loved them and my husband said they melted in his mouth. These will definitely be tradition for us from now on. I served them with breakfast sausage, white cheddar cream eggs, and homemade hash browns. Thank you for a great recipe.  -  19 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I LOVE this recipe! It was just sooo yummy and my roommate loved it as well. Perfect topped with powdered sugar and whipped cream, syrup was a bit too sweet and rich for my taste.  -  29 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
