    For caramel sauce, place ½ cup of the cream, 50g of the butter and the brown sugar in a small heavy-based saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring continuously, for 5 minutes
    until sugar dissolves and sauce starts to bubble and thicken. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.

    Working in batches, heat a little of the remaining butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place 2 slices of brioche in the egg mixture; turn over a couple of times
    until brioche is soggy. Cook brioche for 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to a tray; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining butter, brioche and egg mixture.
