The Best French Toast with Farm Fresh Strawberries

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 250g hulled and halved strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf unsliced white bread
  • oil spray


  1. Preheat oven to 150°C. Combine strawberries, 1 tablespoon sifted icing sugar and balsamic vinegar in a saucepan over medium-low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until pulpy. Cover and set aside.
  2. Place eggs, cream, 1 tablespoon icing sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl and whisk until combined. Cut white bread into 8 thick slices.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat and spray pan with oil spray. Dip 1 slice of the bread into the egg mixture to evenly coat. Drain off excess egg then place the bread in the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a tray lined with non-stick baking paper and place in the oven to keep warm.
  4. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread, lightly greasing the pan between batches. Serve the French toast with a spoonful of the strawberry compote.
