 INGREDIENTS

For the French toast:

  • 4 slices of gingerbread

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter

 

For the ganache:

METHOD

 

For the French toast:

Mix the egg, milk, cream and sugar in a bowl. Soak the gingerbread slices in the mixture for 30 seconds.

Heat the non-stick CRISTEL frying pan on medium heat to melt the butter, then brown the gingerbread on both sides.

 

For the ganache:

Chop the chocolate. Heat the cream in a small CRISTEL saucepan and pour it over the chocolate.

Mix it to make the ganache and add the butter.

 

For the caramel:

Peel and quarter the pears.

Pour the sugar in a stainless steel CRISTEL frying pan. Heat to 2/3 of the maximum heat of your source of heat.

Stir as the sugar starts to caramelize and add the pears.

Deglaze with the blackcurrant liqueur and lime juice, then simmer for 5 minutes.

 

Decorate each slice of gingerbread with a quarter of pear and an oval-shaped scoop of ganache.
