Ingredients

Number of serving: 8

For the shortcrust pastry:

200 g flour (1.6 cups)

90 g butter (1/3 cup)

60 ml water (1/4 cup)

a pinch of salt


For the topping:

300 g strawberries (2/3 pound)

100 g sugar (1/4 cup)

70 g butter (1/3 cup)

Preparation

  • In a round baking tin put 70 g of butter and 100 g of sugar and caramelize it on a source of heat. It should get a nice dark golden colour. The caramel has to cover all of the base of the baking tin.
  • Slice the strawberries and lay them onto the caramel without leaving any gaps.
  • Make the pastry by working with your hands the butter, the flour, the water and the salt.
    You should get a nice smooth dough. Now put it in the fridge for 30 minutes wrap it in cling film.
  • Take it out of the fridge and with a rolling pin flatten it out and cover well the strawberries. Make a couple of small incisions so the steam will be released during cooking.
  • Cook at 180 C for 35-40 minutes until the pastry is nice and golden.
    When cooked leave it to rest for a couple of minutes then turn it upside down with the help of a plate and serve it warm with some cream if you like.
