  • 1 loaf Irish soda bread (see above)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2/3 cup light cream or half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • Clotted cream or whipped cream
  • Strawberry or raspberry preserves or jam


Cut soda bread into 1/2-inch slices, discarding ends. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Dip each slice into egg mixture, saturating well.
In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Working in batches, place slices in the skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Add more butter as needed. Serve warm with clotted cream or whipped cream and preserves on the side.
