Everyone will go crazy for this deliciously sweet dessert treat!

If you’re looking for a light and deliciously sweet dessert option that isn’t too rich for guests, then this could be exactly what you’re looking for.

The perfect mix of almond crumble topping with a sweet strawberry filling will impress the whole dinner table – and this particular recipe is incredibly easy too, so it can even be made fresh on the night of your event for a sweeter taste.

It’s best served with a scoop of plain vanilla ice-cream to really compliment the taste, but works perfectly on it’s own too. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 375g strawberries, hulled, halved
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 35g butter
  • 2 tablespoons flaked almonds
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220C. Grease a 16cm x 26cm shallow roasting pan. Place strawberries and half the sugar in pan. Toss to coat generously.
  2. Add flour and left over sugar in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Add butter. Use fingertips to rub butter into flour mixture to create a breadcrumb consistency. Add almonds. Stir well to combine. Sprinkle almond mixture over strawberries. Press dough together with fingers to make small lumps.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes or until top is golden. Spoon into serving bowls. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
