Preheat oven to 180C. Whisk milk, eggs and icing sugar in a bowl until well combined. Dip bread slices into egg mixture and set aside on a tray to soak (2 minutes).
Heat a quarter of the butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add a slice of bread and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides (2-4 minutes). Transfer bread to an oven tray lined with baking paper and keep warm in a low oven while you repeat with remaining butter and bread.
