This simple recipe may seem a little strange - it's almost deconstructed jam on toast - but it's delicious and couldn't be simpler to make. Photo / Doug Sherring

1. Toast slices of day old bread, one side only. The bread needs to be reasonably rustic, eg, a country style loaf.

2. Slice strawberries and pile these on to the untoasted side of the bread.

3. Sift a good amount of icing sugar over the fruit and place under the grill until starting to melt and colour. Because it is Christmas I added a vanilla pod to help the flavour.

4. A dollop of creme fraiche or mascarpone finishes the plate.
