“I foudn this recipe yesterday and made it stright away. I am posting it so that I don't lose the recipe as it can be made last minute. I used the end of the challa, instead of brioche. Use whatever you have handy. I think next time I might pop it under te grill for that crispy topping you don't get in the microwave.”
