  • 0.25 pt / 125 ml / 1 cup water
  • small piece lemon peel
  • 0.5 pt / 250 ml / l cup milk
  • large egg

 Prepare a syrup by heating together the sugar, water, lemon peel and cinnamon for about ten minutes. Leave to cool and then add the sherry. Soak the bread in milk and then dip in the beaten egg. Fry the bread in very hot oil until golden and crisp. Pour the cold syrup over the bread and serve immediately.
