  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Effort: easy


  • 1 Bara brith bread, (spiced fruit bread) thinly sliced
  • jam, of your choice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 25 ml clarified butter

For the whiskey cream

  • 250 ml double cream
  • 50 ml whiskey

To serve

  • ground cinnamon
  • caster sugar


1. For the Bara brith: take 2 Bara brith slices and spread with jam. Put the slices together to make a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining Bara brith and jam.

2. Put the sandwich in the beaten egg for at least 30 seconds, so that the bread absorbs the egg mixture. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.

3. Gently heat the clarified butter in a frying pan and cook the sandwiches on both sides until golden. Drain on kitchen paper.

4. For the whiskey cream: whisk the double cream and whiskey liqueur together until stiff.

5. To serve: sprinkle the cooked sandwiches with caster sugar and cinnamon and serve with a spoonful of whisky cream.
