  1. Whisk cream, milk, eggs and ground cinnamon together in a bowl.
  2. Dip each slice of bread in the mixture one by one and stack on a plate or chopping board. Let your little helper do the dipping, getting them to make sure the bread is nicely coated.
  3. Heat half the butter in a large frying pan (preferably non-stick). Once the butter is foaming, add 2 of the bread slices and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  4. Place on a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm while you melt the rest of the butter and fry the rest of the bread.
  5. Cut each slice of bread into 5 soldiers and serve alongside a dollop of yogurt sprinkled with raisins. Drizzle with honey and serve immediately. Yogurt’s optional if you want to keep it really light!
