-In a medium size pot over low heat melt the butter, lemon juice, white and brown sugar.

-Once melted add the diced apples, vanilla bean and salt.

-Increase the heat until the apples boil. Once boiled reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer until the apples are tender, but still holding there shape.

This should be 15-20 minutes

1 cup mascarpone

½ cup cream

¼ Vanilla bean, split and scrapped

(Be careful not to over whip the cream)

*If you are unable to find vanilla beans, replace with ¼ tablespoon of vanilla extract.

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.
