Love heart cakes
Pretty heart shaped sandwich cakes are a perfect treat for your Valentine.

4 slices from a large sliced brioche loaf

3 tbsp chocolate hazelnut spread

1 large egg

75ml whole milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp caster sugar

2 tbsp chopped toasted hazelnuts

1 tbsp butter

Icing sugar, for dusting

Ice cream, to serve

Raspberries, to serve

Thickly spread 2 of the brioche slices with the chocolate hazelnut spread, then top with the remaining slices to make 2 sandwiches.

Use a heart-shaped cutter to cut the sandwiches.

Whisk the egg, milk, vanilla and caster sugar in a wide, shallow bowl.

Tip the hazelnuts onto a plate.

Dip the sandwiches into the egg mixture, then dip one side of each sandwich into the nuts.

The sandwiches can be chilled like this, covered loosely with cling film, for up to 1 hour.

Heat the butter in a wide frying pan until melted and foaming.

Add the sandwiches and cook for 1-2 mins each side until golden brown and puffed up.

Dust with a little icing sugar and serve with ice cream and raspberries.
