Spoil mum this Mother's Day with a recipe using the deliciously creamy, buttery flavour of macadamias.


  • 2 thick slices fruit bread

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons cream

  • 2 tablespoons macadamias, roasted, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon macadamia oil

  • 2 eggs extra, for the heart


  • 1.

    Using a 7cm heart-shaped cutter, cut hearts out of each slice of bread. Beat the eggs together with the vanilla, cream and macadamias. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frypan over medium heat. Dip the bread slices and hearts in egg mixture, then place in the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden, reducing the heat a little when flipping.

  • 2.

    Remove the hearts from heat and set aside. Break the extra eggs into the heart-shaped holes of the bread. Cover and cook until the egg whites turn opaque but the yolks are still soft, about 5 minutes.

  • 3.

    To serve, stack slices of French toast on a plate along with the heart-shaped cut-outs to use for dipping into the yolks.
