Serve with (optional)

  • Maple syrup optional

  • Take a slice of bread and using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut the bread slices.
  • To make the strawberry compote cut up the strawberries and place in a bowl.
  • Add the vanilla extract, sugar and cinnamon and stir it.
  • Pour the strawberries in to a saucepan with the water and on a low heat cook for 3-5 minutes until they are soft, but still holding their shape, and bubbling. Remove and set aside until the French toast is cooked.
  • Heat a frying pan to a medium/hot temperature and add a teaspoon of butter.
  • Dip the bread hearts into the mix and leave for a few seconds to soak all the way through.
  • Pop the bread hearts in the pan and cook until golden brown on each side.
  • Serve with the strawberries and a good drizzle of maple syrup. Bacon also tastes pretty great!
