RECIPE: Adelaide Central Market

This is a great recipe for kids to make during the school holidays and the ingredients are nearly all staples. It’s important to start with the strawberry preparation, to allow enough time for a syrup to develop. French toast is a great way to use up stale bread and can use a number of different bread varieties for example, sourdough, brioche, breadsticks, sliced bread and even croissants!

Preparation time: 15 minutes | Cooking time: 15 minutes | Serves: 4


French toast

  • 3 jumbo eggs, lightly whisked
  • 150ml milk
  • 6 extra thick slices fruit loaf
  • ¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 60g unsalted butter


Macerated strawberries

  • 1 punnet strawberries, hulled & sliced
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar


To serve

  • 1 cup (280g) vanilla yogurt or whipped cream with vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons edible flowers, dry or fresh (optional)



  1. For the strawberries, place sliced strawberries in a bowl with vanilla and sugar, tossing until well coated. Leave to stand for at least 30 minutes, to allow the strawberries to release their juices and create a syrup.
  2. For the French toast, whisk the eggs and milk together in a large wide bowl until well combined. On a separate plate combine the sugar and cinnamon together for later.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and melt a little of the butter. Dip two slices of fruit loaf at a time into the egg mixture, coating both sides. Place in the pan and fry for 2 minutes each side or until golden. Remove French toast from the pan and place on top of the cinnamon sugar, coating both sides. Repeat process with remaining fruit loaf.
  4. To serve, halve the fruit loaf slices and arrange three pieces on each plate, topped with vanilla yoghurt, strawberries and edible flowers. To finish, drizzle over the strawberry syrup.
