We start by making the syrup, putting the water, sugar and anise or the water with the vanilla on the fire. It has to boil about five minutes, uncovered so that the syrup is concentrated. . (Thermomix: 6 min / Varoma / speed 1 / without cup).

Meanwhile, we place the slices on a baking sheet and soak them well with the syrup. We spread the custard on top and sprinkle them with plenty of brown sugar and cinnamon. Finally, we gratinate them for about 5 minutes at maximum power.

To make the custard, we crush all the ingredients with the turmix, and put them over medium heat for about ten minutes, without stopping stirring with the rods so that they thicken without boiling so that the yolks do not curdle. (Thermomix: we put all the ingredients in the glass and beat 5 sec / speed.5. Place the butterfly on the blades and program 7 min / 90º / speed 2).

To give them an original touch, you can cut the bread with a cookie cutter in the shape of a flower, heart, etc. and you will be left with a beautiful presentation. Accompany them with a sweet wine.
