  • 800g/5 cups strawberries
  • 100g/1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch/corn flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp sweet Marsala wine optional
  • 120g/1 cup flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 50g/1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 60g/1/4 cup cold butter
  • 50g/1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 3-4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp heavy/double cream
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Hull and slice the strawberries. Combine the brown sugar and cornstarch, then mix with the strawberries. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, then cut in the cold cubed butter with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ground almonds and milk, then mix just until the dough comes together. Turn it out on a floured surface and shape into a rectangle 1 inch thick. Then cut into 12 square biscuits.
  • Turn the prepared strawberries into an 9-inch baking dish or a skillet, sprinkle with the Marsala wine if using. Then top with the biscuits. Brush the biscuits with the heavy/double cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until the biscuits are golden.
