    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. Serve warm topped with ice-cream and maple syrup and dusted with icing sugar
