Introducing the dessert breakfast

For years, the humble British breakfast has catered to savoury, rather than sweet, tastes.

But for those who always wished their bacon would come with a sugary twist, there's hope on the horizon.

Amateur cook Vicky McDonald has created a new type of traditional breakfast made entirely from dessert items.

The unconventional dish (above, left to right) consists of panna cotta, biscuits, brioche and more - all cleverly manipulated to resemble a good old fry-up.

Dublin-based Vicky first came up with the idea by serving panna cotta.

"I often make panna cotta and serve it with lemon curd. The two together always remind me of a fried egg, so I started off making this and then experimented with the rest of the food items," she explained.

The process was not entirely hassle-free, however, with one attempt to deep-fry a marshmallow as a hash brown ending in "a spectacularly gooey mess."

Dessert Breakfast - the ingredients

Bacon - Brandy snaps

Eggs - Panna Cotta with lemon curd

Black pudding - Dark chocolate biscuit

Hash browns - Brioche
