1. Combine water, sugar and vanilla extract in a medium-sized saucepan. Stir on a low heat until sugar dissolves.

2. Increase heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Add apricots, reduce heat to low and simmer for 25-30 minutes, until apricots are soft and compote thickens. Set aside to cool.

4. In a small bowl, mix together mascarpone and icing sugar until smooth.

5. To serve, spread mascarpone mixture onto toasted brioche and top with apricot compote


Keep leftover compote in a jar in the fridge – it’s great on toast or ice cream.
