Lazy strawberry marmelade recipe: Takes 5 minutes, is healthy, tastes insanely delicious

Strawberry Marmelade Breakfast

Do you know that moment when you wake up and crave strawberry marmelade, and have no strawberry marmelade at home, but strawberries and sugar, and you figure that’s all you need to make strawberry marmelade yourself, and then you go and make it? Exactly, that moment.

Here’s to an experiment and its delicious outcome.

Lazy strawberry marmelade recipe

  1. Wash, de-stem, cut, and squash fresh strawberries.
  2. Combine with sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon in a small pot. Bring to a boil, stir, let simmer until slightly thickened.
  3. Cut Challah bread into thick slices, top with yogurt and still warm lazy strawberry marmelade. Done!

The beauty of this recipe is that you are in full control of the quantity of sugar you add. I found that 1 tablespoon of sugar was enough for around 150g/1 cup of fruit, much less than the 50% of sugar you’ll find in store-bought marmelade.

Plus this stuff is so delicious. Plus it actually firms up when you put it in the fridge and looks just like real strawberry marmelade. Plus it’s so quick to make that you can spend all day making recipe illustrations instead of marmelade. Whoop.

Try this and let me know how it turned out! Also, you should go and check out the illustrations of Lucy Engelman on the world wide web, whose wonderful art inspired my above depicted attempt of recipe illustration.

    1. Hi Melanie! How cool that you recognize the style! I actually made this illustration myself, after seeing Lucy’s work in the latest Anthology issue! I love her style of illustrating and so gave it a go myself.

And, what are we thinking?
