Preheat the oven to gas 5/190C (170C in a fan oven) sit the brioche on a baking sheet then evenly scatter over the marzipan.
Divide the strawberries between each one then squeeze over the lime juice, then sprinkle with sugar if using and almonds. Put in the oven to toast for about 20-25 mins or until the brioche is golden and the topping is bubbling. Remove and dust with icing sugar and serve with a dollop of crème fraiche or Greek yoghurt if you are feeling slightly more virtuous!
Cook’s tip: Drizzle over some kirsch or cherry brandy before cooking if you fancy – ideally after midday
