Fancy whipping up something a little bit naughty and indulgent this weekend for Mother’s Day? If you’re after something that’ll satisfy even the sugariest sweet tooth, our Nutella and strawberry French toast is simply divine. Ready in just 10 minutes, it’s the perfect recipe for surprising your lovely Mum on Mothering Sunday morning. Mmmm, Nutella French toast and a nice cup of tea in bed, now that does sound bliss.

Of course, if you fancy changing things up a little, this recipe works just as well with banana, blueberries or even a naughty scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of your toast, however, we love the vibrant colour of the strawberries on the plate. For a really luxurious addition, try drizzling a little melted chocolate on top, it’s delicious!
