Crisp & sweet Brioche toast piled high with marinated strawberries, dripping with homemade balsamic syrup and topped off with vanilla Mascarpone. Make time over the weekend to linger over this lively breakfast/brunch.
1. Don't be alarmed by the small volume of syrup this recipe makes. A little goes a long way - each plateful should get 2-3 tsp of balsamic syrup. 2. The strawberries do not store well once marinated - serve within an hour. 3. If you want to serve the balsamic strawberries as a dessert just follow up to stage 2. After 20 minutes stir and serve (with all of the fantastic juice) in small bowls with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired.
