Valentines Day Custard Toast
Meet the new love of your life, custard toast. If you haven’t tried this yet, now is your time.
Ingredients [Serves 2]
- 2 stalks of rhubarb
- 2 tbsps sugar
- ½ orange
- Knob of butter
- 150ml shop bought custard or make your own with the recipe in our stories
- 2 slices of brioche
- 2 tbsps demerara sugar
Step 1: Get 2 frying pans, ideally non-stick. Slice your rhubarb into batons and add to one of the pans with the caster sugar and the zest and juice of ½ an orange. Simmer over a medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved and the rhubarb is soft and an intense pink colour.
Step 2: Heat your other pan over a medium heat and add the knob of butter until it’s melted and move the pan round to fully coat the base. Slide in the slices of brioche and toast until golden.
Step 3: Push down the middle of the toast with your fingers (be careful it will be hot) or the back of a spoon and fill with the custard. Top with the rhubarb in any pattern you like and shake over the demerara sugar. Transfer to a tray and slide under a hot grill until the sugar is bubbling and caramelised or, if you have a blow torch, use that!
