  • 8 slices of bread
  • Butter as required
  • 500 ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Cashews and chocochips for sprinkling


  • Butter the bread slices generously and form into sandwiches - total you will have four.
  • Cut diagonally and arrange on an oven-proof glassware.
  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
  • Heat the milk in a saucepan. Add the sugar and stir till dissolved.
  • Beat the eggs lightly with a fork and slowly pour into the hot milk, stirring constantly to ensure that the eggs don't curdle.
  • Add in the vanilla essence and cook for a few minutes till the milk gets slightly thicker.
  • Switch off the flame and pour it on top of the prepared bread and butter.
  • Sprinkle the cashews and choco-chips generously on top and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes till the top gets slightly browned.
  • Serve warm as is, or with a scoop of ice-cream, for further more added calories!!! Hehe...


1. I, being a lazy head, did not bother to remove the sides of the bread. If you want, you can go ahead and remove.
2. If using milk bread, adjust sugar levels accordingly.
3. You can use anything to sprinkle on top - raisins, almonds, etc. The choice is yours.
4. Ensure to serve warm. I tried eating it cold, but didn't like the taste, so microwaved it for a minute and had it. :)
