Ingredients

2 large Co-op British free range eggs
4 tbsp Co-op semi-skimmed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp maple syrup, plus extra to serve
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, maple syrup and half the cinnamon in a shallow bowl
Soak the croissants in the mixture for a few seconds on each side
Melt half the butter in a frying pan on a medium heat until foaming, then fry 4 of the croissant halves for 2-3 mins on each side, pressing down lightly, until golden brown and crisp
Transfer to a baking tray and repeat for the remaining halves and butter
Preheat the grill to medium-high
Mix the caster sugar with the rest of the cinnamon and sprinkle generously over the top of the croissants
Grill for 1-2 mins, until the sugar melts and caramelises, then serve the croissants drizzled with the extra maple syrup and topped with fresh berries
