Gingerbread French Toast


For the French toast:

  • 4 slices of gingerbread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter


For the ganache:

  • 1 bar of dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter


For the caramel:

  • 2 pears
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon blackcurrant liqueur
  • Juice of 1 lime


For the French toast:

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

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


For the ganache:

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

4 Mix it to make the ganache and add the butter.


For the caramel:

5 Peel and quarter the pears.

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

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

8 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.
