For the dish

-In a deep pan or baking tin pour in the Royale

-Place 4 slices of the cut Pullman into the liquid and allow to soak 2-3 minutes on each side.

-Place a large fry pan on med heat and allow the pan to heat up (not smoking hot)

-Once the bread has soaked place on wire rack and allow to drain for one minute

-Add 3 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the pan and carefully place the soaked bread (place the bread away from you as not to splash yourself with any hoy oil!)

-Cook on both sides for around 2 minutes either side until the bread is golden brown.

Remove from pan, cut into halves, place on plate and add a spoon of the hot apple over the top.

Finish with a dollop of the vanilla mascarpone and a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar, sprig of mint.

Handy tip

Its always best to use bread that is few days old as you will find that it will hold up better in the liquid.
