Toast with strawberry sauce

After uselessly staring at a number of Nigella Lawson episodes, I decided to take it one step forward. To try out a recipe ( and thus make myself useful ). A simple breakfast or a snack.

Doughnut French Toast with strawberry sauce - recipe


(serves : 2)

2 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
60ml full-fat milk
4 slices from a small white loaf or 2 slices from a large white loaf, each large slice cut in half
25g butter, plus a drop of flavourless oil for frying
50g caster sugar


150 g hulled strawberries
4 tbsp castor sugar
lemon juice


1. Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla in a wide, shallow bowl.

2. Soak the bread halves in the eggy mixture for 5 minutes a side.

3. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan, and fry the egg-soaked bread until golden and scorched in parts on both sides.

4. Put the sugar on a plate and then dip the cooked bread in it until coated like a sugared doughnut
5. For the sauce, whizz up strawberries, icing sugar and a spritz of lemon juice in the blender, to make a sauce to pour or puddle over.
