1. The berry compote


  • 1 cup frozen mix berries 
  • 1 cup caster sugar 

Cook the berries and sugar in a pan on medium heat until the mixture is reduced to 3/4 of its original volume. Take off heat and leave until needed.

Tip: Keep the compote smooth and runny. Overcooking will make it thick and jam-like.

2. The cinnamon mascarpone


  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder 
  • 100 gm mascarpone cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar caster

Mix above ingredients in a bowl. Keep refrigerated until needed.

3. The Toast

Ingredients for French toast:

  • 2 eggs
  • 40 ml milk
  • 1/5 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 25 ml orange juice (optional)
  • 4 slices of bread (we normally use a brioche but white bread will work too)
  • 1 tsp butter                          

Whisk the egg, milk, cinnamon and orange juice in a bowl until all ingredients are well combined. Cut bread slices into triangles and soak in the mixture for 30 seconds. Tip: Soak for longer if you want a more intense flavour.

Heat a non-stick pan, add butter and once the butter is foaming, add your sliced bread.

Cook both sides until golden brown in colour.

Serve with the mascarpone cream and berry compote.
