Lost Bread
(Pain Perdu)

Tell a Friend

Lost Bread is a traditional recipe from the Dordogne region of France, another name is 'les daudines'
it is a sweet version of 'french toast'.

It's name speaks for itself, it uses old french bread, which would otherwise be lost, hence 'pain perdu'

The recipe was given to me during one of our many nights round the dining table with our french friends.
A tasty dessert to finish off the meal, with a fresh pot of coffee.
